Reorganization of Energy Technologies Creates New Division Director Opportunity

Berkeley Lab Director Paul Alivisatos announced the formation of four Divisions in the Energy Technologies (ET) area. The Area is designed to take advantage of opportunities to address scientific and technological problems of climate change and sustainable energy development, and to align more closely with the Department of Energy’s research thrusts. It is also intended to accelerate the deployment of new technologies into the marketplace, and encourage entrepreneurship.

Associate Lab Director (ALD) for the Energy Technologies area, Ramamoorthy Ramesh said that the research in the now former Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD) is strong in the areas of applied science and engineering, technology, finance and policy—areas which are all central to developing and deploying solutions to the great energy and environmental changes facing society. He intends to move ET research forcefully towards the deployment of solutions that address these challenges.

With any change, new opportunities are created. We are currently conducting an international search for an Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division Director. This new division will perform research and develop technologies and strategies that enable a shift toward carbon-free transportation and the penetration of renewables on the electric grid.  

The Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division Director will be a key member of Berkeley Lab’s scientific leadership. Provide strategic leadership of the Division’s research programs with $25 million in annual funding and 108 employees. Ensure the quality of the research in the division, enhancing existing research programs and developing new programs. Collaborate and coordinate with the leadership of ETA research divisions. Establish and sustain other partnerships within the Lab, with academia with the broader ecosystem that includes industry partners, other national laboratories, and state and federal agencies. Act as spokesperson for the Division in interactions with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and other government agencies. Working within the Energy Technologies Area leadership framework, have accountability for Division budgets, funding, workforce planning, human resources management, environmental health and safety, property and facilities management. Work as a member of Laboratory senior management to ensure smooth operations and long-term prospects of the Division and Laboratory as a whole.
