Lawrence Berkeley National LaboratoryBerkeley (USA)
Molecular Foundry Director - 84410
Organization: AE-Energy Sciences
Berkeley Lab is seeking a dynamic leader to serve as the Director of the Molecular Foundry.
The Molecular Foundry is a national scientific user facility at Berkeley Lab, and one of five Nanoscale Science Research
Centers sponsored by the Basic Energy Sciences Office of the DOE Office of Science. The Director guides the dual mission
of the Molecular Foundry, which is both a multidisciplinary research center at the forefront of nanoscale science, and a
knowledge-based user facility that provides its state-of-the-art expertise, methods, and instrumentation to over 800 users
per year. The Foundry features collaborative research staff and world-leading capabilities in its seven integrated technical
facilities: Imaging and Manipulation of Nanostructures, Nanofabrication, Theory of Nanostructured Materials, Inorganic
Nanostructures, Biological Nanostructures, Organic and Macromolecular Synthesis, and the National Center for Electron Microscopy.
In this critical role, the Molecular Foundry Director will join Berkeley Lab’s leadership team and provide scientific vision and
organizational leadership for both the user and internal research programs of the Molecular Foundry, building a vibrant and interactive
research community at the Foundry. The Director will be responsible for representing and strategically prioritizing investments and
initiatives that promote the Foundry’s highly collaborative, multidisciplinary internal research portfolio, ensuring that it is
responsive to the needs of the nanoscience user community. The Director will maintain a culture of excellence and inclusion by
recruiting and retaining outstanding employees - including scientists and engineers in strategic areas of basic research who
perform independent research and collaborate with users - and will enthusiastically support and promote their careers. The
Director will also be responsible for maintaining a vibrant user program, including formulating strategies for user outreach,
recruitment, and tracking and responding to the needs of the user community, as expressed by the User Executive Committee. The
Director will oversee a budget of approximately $30 million and a staff of over 80 employees, including staff scientists/engineers,
research/engineering associates, postdoctoral fellows, and management, administrative, IT, finance, human resources, environment/health/safety
(EHS), and communications and outreach staff. The Director will receive scientific and strategic guidance from an external Scientific
Advisory Board, as well as an internal committee of Facility Directors.
The Director will serve as a member of the executive team of the Energy Sciences Area, which is primarily funded by the Basic Energy
Sciences program of the DOE Office of Science. As a member of Berkeley Lab's management, the Director is expected to build collaborative
partnerships and programs within the Energy Sciences Area, with other Divisions at Berkeley Lab, and with external research institutions.
The Director will act as a spokesperson for the Molecular Foundry in interactions with the DOE and will articulate the Foundry’s mission
to visitors and the public at large.
