Environmental Sciences Department Chair
Brookhaven National Laboratory

A Chairperson for the Environmental Sciences Department at Brookhaven
National Laboratory (BNL) is sought to lead the continued development of
internationally competitive programs in climate, environmental science
and technology. The Department consists of a diverse group of 58
scientists, technicians and information technology professionals with a
yearly operating budget of approximately $18M (<www.bnl.gov/envsci>).

The successful candidate will be committed to foster work in
cross-disciplinary teams on scientific challenges appropriately
addressed in a national laboratory setting. In addition to maintaining
their own active research program, they will be expected to:

* Provide intellectual and managerial leadership for the staff in the
Environmental Sciences Department. Work with the staff to recruit,
mentor and develop staff members, and to maintain an interactive
environment supportive of creative scientific research.
* Develop a scientific vision for the Department appropriate for a
leading national laboratory, and actively participate in accomplishing
this vision. The goal is to develop premier atmospheric (e.g., aerosol
and cloud), environmental, and terrestrial ecosystem science research
programs consistent with the missions of the Department of Energy (DOE).
This should involve building a strategic business plan that leverages
the unique multi-disciplinary capabilities and facilities at BNL, and
builds upon current BNL environmental science and technology
capabilities to address new challenges.
* Build strategic partnerships inside and outside BNL that significantly
enhance the responsiveness, competitiveness, productivity and impact of
the department R&D efforts, resulting in a sustainable growth in the
level and scope of department funding.

Qualified candidates are required to have:
* A doctorate degree in atmospheric, environmental or ecological
sciences, or related disciplines;
* A recognized record of scientific accomplishment, and an active
research and development effort in one or more of the following areas:
terrestrial ecosystem science, aerosol and cloud properties and their
effects on climate, and/or climate model development particularly
involving the improved representation of atmospheric and/or carbon cycle
processes that are relevant to DOE missions in Energy and Environment;
* Proven capabilities in scientific and managerial leadership with
management, communication, and decision-making skills;
* Familiarity with one or more of the following DOE programs: the
Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program (<http://www.arm.gov/>),
the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program
(<http://asr.science.energy.gov/>), the Climate Modeling Program
(<http://climatemodeling.science.energy.gov/>), and/or the Terrestrial
Ecosystem Science Program (<http://tes.science.energy.gov/>).

Demonstrated knowledge of and/or experience working with other federal
and non-federal agencies that support environmental science and
technology R&D is highly desirable.

The potential for a joint appointment with Stony Brook University can be
explored for interested candidates.

A complete description of the position is available at the job
application site. To be considered for this position, apply online at
