At its best, LBL embodies everything positive about academic science: brilliant co-workers, intellectual freedom, experimentation, and being on the leading edge of a field. At its worst, it embodies most of the negative stereotypes too, but at least it's an improvement over university labs.
I have been a postdoctoral research fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) for three years. In this time I have collaborated and discussed with experts in diverse fields, and co-authored papers on a range of topics. I have also had lots of opportunity to travel and represent our group internationally. I have learnt a great deal in three years and I wholeheartedly recommend LBNL as a postdoctoral destination.
My work was using Ruby on Rails to build a website which can organize medical images. The website has different user level, such as downloader, uploader and administrator. For different user level, the permission is different. The feature for this website is that, it allows uploader or administrator to upload a very huge file (more than 50GB) to server. We split this kind of files to different chunks. Then, we send these chunks from browser to server.
