General Admission


Research Scientist position at the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis

Opening for a career-track, Research Scientist position at the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). This is a Solar Fuels Innovation Hub recently funded by the Department of Energy with physical location at the sites of the major partners, Caltech (South) and LBNL (North).

The position will assume significant responsibility for the synthetic and catalyst evaluation efforts in the Molecular Catalysis Project located at the JCAP North Site. Anticipated activities involve novel synthetic approaches, including those based on molecular design and precursor chemistry, for targeting novel catalytic structures such as inorganic clusters, nanostructures, and stabilized, surface-bound catalytic centers. Significant effort will also involve electrochemical studies for the evaluation of new catalysts, and for characterizations of active catalytic centers and catalytic mechanisms.

The position offers a unique opportunity for a stellar early career scientist to assume a key role at the inception of the Lab and the JCAP research effort towards solar-to-fuels technologies.

Classification will be at the Research Scientist or Staff Scientist/Career-track or Career level. If you are aware of any suitable candidates for this position, please encourage them to visit the LBNL employment page or view the position description at this web address:

STEM Chateaubriand Fellowship Program

The STEM Chateaubriand Fellowship program targets outstanding Ph.D. students enrolled in an American university who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 9 month period. The Office of Science and Technology provide a stipend of up to 1,400 €/month (depending on other sources of funding) and cover the cost of travel and student health insurance.

STEM Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition. Priority is given to candidates working toward a “double degree” (cotutelle) with their host institution. All Sciences, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) and Health disciplines are eligible. The required level of French remains at the discretion of the host laboratory.

The deadline for applications is February 1st 2013, for a stay which can begin from September 1st 2013 to April 1st, 2014.
