Position Description:    

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in science and engineering on behalf of national security. We are seeking a Scientific Machine Learning Postdoc who is knowledgeable in the application of SciM to plasma physics to join the T-5 Applied Mathematics and Plasma Physics Group in our Theoretical Division and investigate methods for data-driven, dynamical forecasting that promote long-time stability. In this position, you will be expected to:

• Explore various ML-based techniques, including manifold learning, structure-preserving and stability-enhanced neural networks, adaptive latent-space identification, etc. • Investigate the mathematical foundations and rigorous approximation properties of proposed ML architectures.

Minimum Requirements: • PhD in related fields completed within the past five years or soon to be completed • Practical experience with various neural network architectures (DNN, CNN, RNN/LSTM, autoencoders, neural ODEs, etc.) • Practical experience with deep learning packages such as PyTorch, TensorFlow, Keras, etc. • Code development experience in C/C++, Fortran, Python or MATLAB • Solid publication record in high-impact journals or top-tier machine learning conferences

Desired Qualifications: • Experience in numerical methods and high-performance computing • Experience in computational plasma physics (tokamak disruption and mitigation, MHD stability, magnetic reconnection, particle and energy transport, atomic physics processes and radiation, runaway electron dynamics, etc.) • Ability to conduct independent and collaborative research in a multi-disciplinary environment

We Are Delivering Scientific Excellence Los Alamos National Laboratory is more than a place to work. It is a catalyst for discovery, innovation and achievement. Professional development, work/life balance and a diverse and inclusive team foster lasting career satisfaction.
