Requires a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, or a related field. The qualified candidate must have earned a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics or a related field. Applicants with demonstrated expertise in the application of ultrafast laser techniques to chemical physics problems will be strongly preferred. Experience in UHV surface science and/or preparation of supported metal nanoparticles are also preferred, but not required.

Desirable Capabilities include experience in UHV surface science and/or preparation of supported metal nanoparticles, and demonstrated expertise in the application of ultrafast laser techniques to chemical physics problems.

The Surface Chemical Dynamics group in the Chemistry Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory is seeking candidates for a Postdoctoral Research Associate appointment. The successful applicant will work to identify and elucidate mechanisms and energy transfer timescales in photon-driven chemical transformations at single crystal and nanoparticle surfaces. The dependence of the dynamics upon surface structure and nanoparticle size is of particular interest. The research targets understanding the molecular dynamics relevant to energy-related catalysis. Specific experiments include time-resolved measurements of desorption and reaction of small molecules initiated by amplified femtosecond laser pulses.

Interested candidates please include a brief (1 paragraph) statement of research interests, curriculum vitae, and list of three references with their online application. Under the direction of Nick Camillone at nicholas@bnl.gov.

BNL policy states that research associate appointments may be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years.

BNL is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to the development of a diverse workforce.
