We are seeking an experienced, dynamic leader to inspire and lead Applied Energy Sciences strategic initiatives.
Building on our historic strength in energy-efficiency technologies and policy analysis, we are setting out to increase the impact of basic research, translating fundamental discoveries into transformational solutions for energy and environment. As Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for Applied Energy Sciences, you will be charged with leading this effort and building innovative new applied energy sciences programs that will leverage Berkeley Lab’s existing strengths in advanced materials,
computation, engineering, physics, and biology. Additionally, you will be charged with stewarding, strengthening, and diversifying Berkeley Lab’s existing world-renowned portfolio of programs in energy-efficiency technologies and systems analysis.
The Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for Applied Energy Sciences has Laboratory-wide responsibility for Applied Energy Sciences and collaborates with the Division Director of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division and other divisions within the area to ensure
the attainment of the Laboratory’s multidisciplinary long-term and short-term scientific and operational goals. The ALD for Applied Energy Sciences will:
- Develop a strategic vision for utilizing Berkeley Lab’s proven capabilities to become a leader in accelerating technology innovation from first discovery to first commercial use.
- Develop new organizational models for rapidly advancing innovation within the framework of a national laboratory.
- Spearhead new initiatives and a clear set of principles for action, and affect culture change across the Laboratory in these areas.
Reporting to the Laboratory Director, you will have full accountability for Applied Energy Sciences strategic planning, budgets, funding, workforce planning, Human Resources, environment/Health/Safety (EHS), property, and facilities management. You will act as chief spokesperson for Applied Energy Sciences to the University, DOE, external agencies and internal groups. You will be a key member of the Laboratory’s senior leadership team providing strategic advice, counsel, and insight to the Laboratory Director and Deputy Laboratory Director on the formulation and execution of the Laboratory’s strategic directions and goals.
Bringing science solutions to the world.
From the infinite scale of the universe to the infinitesimal scale of subatomic particles, Berkeley Lab researchers are addressing national and global challenges and advancing the scope of human knowledge through an array of scientific programs, partnerships, and proposals.
