Why Work at BNL? Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov) delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation's future. Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 37 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research. The Lab is primarily supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science. Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) operates and manages the Laboratory for DOE. BSA is a partnership between Battelle and The Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University.
Organizational Overview The Chemistry Division (http://www.bnl.gov/chemistry) of Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL, http://www.bnl.gov) seeks a postdoctoral Research Associate to join the newly DOE-funded Center for Hybrid Approaches in Solar Energy to Liquid Fuels (CHASE), a Fuels from Sunlight Center that will be led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). In addition to BNL, CHASE includes collaborators at Emory University, North Carolina State University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University.
The successful candidates will work collaboratively with a team of scientists from the Artificial Photosynthesis (AP, https://www.bnl.gov/chemistry/AP/) and Catalysis: Reactivity and Structure (CRS, https://www.bnl.gov/chemistry/CRS/) groups and will be supervised by CHASE principal investigators from those groups. Research is also expected to involve extensive collaboration with investigators at other CHASE institutions.
PhD in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Materials Science.
Demonstrated experience in one or more of the following areas:
Synthesis/characterization of organic compounds, inorganic, and organometallic coordination complexes.
Homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysis of small molecule activation.
Electrochemistry applied to mechanistic and kinetic studies in solution and at interfaces.
Time-resolved spectroscopies such as UV/Vis transient absorption (TA), time-resolved infrared (TRIR), and time-resolved resonance Raman (TR 3 ).
Synchrotron-based techniques (XAS, XPS, XRD, RIXS) for molecular and heterogeneous catalysts, including in-situ and in-operando methods.
Experience in mechanistic studies of catalytic reactions is a plus.
Other Information: The position will be available starting in May-June 2022 and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
BNL policy requires that after obtaining their PhD, eligible candidates for research associate appointments may not exceed a combined total of 5 years of relevant work experience as a post-doc and/or in an R&D position, excluding time associated with family planning, military service, illness or other life-changing events.

About Brookhaven National Laboratory
Brookhaven National Laboratory is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Located on the center of Long Island, New York, Brookhaven Lab brings world-class facilities and expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science—from the birth of our universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. We operate cutting-edge large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Our award-winning history, including seven Nobel Prizes, stretches back to 1947, and we continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven is operated and managed by Brookhaven Science Associates, which was founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.
