Post doc in Synthetic Photochemistry at Brookhaven National Laboratory
The Chemistry Division at Brookhaven National Laboratory has an opening for a postdoctoral research associate in synthetic photochemistry in the Electron and Photon Induced Processes (EPIP) Group. The position is part of the BioInspired Light Escalated Chemistry (BioLEC) Energy Frontiers Research Center (EFRC) collaboration that is led by Princeton University https://biolec.princeton.edu/.
The successful candidate will be trained to perform pulse radiolysis experiments using the 9 MeV Laser Electron Accelerator Facility (LEAF) in the Chemistry Division. This unique experimental technique enables the rapid generation and study of highly energetic, reactive and short-lived chemical intermediates. The research includes understanding mechanisms in photocatalytic cycles, investigating chemistry that can be performed with super-reductants and super-oxidants and measuring redox and spectroscopic properties of short-lived intermediates. The work will be under supervision of Dr. Matthew Bird.
