Submitted by Hannah; posted on Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Submitter RESPONSIBILITIES:
As a member of the Life Sciences Division at Berkeley Lab, independently direct and maintain an extramurally funded, vigorous multi-disciplinary research program in specific disciplines critical for the Division's continued focus on understanding complex biological systems. Relevant areas of research include, but are not limited to: advanced bioimaging and biophysics, environmental epigenomics, and computational biology (bioinformatics, biostatistics, image analysis and visualization, and modeling).

Specific Responsibilities:
Direct and conduct independent research (75%)
* Develop and apply state-of-the-art analytical imaging and biophysics instrumentation, and/or systems biology (omics) tools, and/or computational biology tools to address biology research challenges in one or more of the Division's focus areas: 1) elucidating pathways and mechanisms that impact cancer/aging, genome dynamics, and understanding of molecular machines; and 2) understanding effects on biological systems of energy-related impacts such as low-dose radiation, biofuels and microbial systems, and nanoparticles.
* Establish world-class bioscience technology capabilities to strengthen the Division's and the Lab's prominence in development of novel bioscience tools.
* Develop a strong independent research program while participating effectively in selected multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research programs, in collaboration with scientists throughout LBNL as well as at neighboring University of California campuses.
* Communicate research results through publications in internationally-recognized journals, as well as presentations (lectures, seminars, and posters at international scientific conferences).
* Ensure that research responsibilities are aligned and consistent with the goals of the Life Sciences Division of LBNL and the US Department of Energy.

* Project management experience including experience with managing multiple projects simultaneously, and tracking budgets for each
* Proven ability and experience to facilitate constructive and productive team efforts involving scientific and administrative support staff
* Extensive experience in multi-disciplinary research, microscopy, cell biology, molecular biology, bioengineering or biophysics, and biochemistry
* Excellent organizational, verbal, and written communication skills, demonstrated by publications, presentations, and successful grant applications
* Demonstrated ability as an independent problem solver, team member, and effective project manager to accomplish project goals
* Proven ability to secure extramural funding
