Subject: DOE Position


The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy
Sciences is seeking two Energy Biosciences program managers - one for
the Photosynthetic Systems Program and one for the Physical Biosciences
Program.  Richard Greene, who currently manages these programs is also
the Lead for the new Photo- and Bio-Chemistry Team in which these
programs are housed.  Joining the Biosciences Programs in this team is
the Solar Photochemistry program.  The team is designed to promote
cross-disciplinary research that will lay the foundation for
breakthroughs in future energy capture and conversion strategies.


Job Opportunities: Program Managers for Photosynthetic Systems and
Physical Biosciences

The Office of Basic Energy Sciences (http://www.sc.doe.gov/bes/bes.html
<BLOCKED::http://www.sc.doe.gov/bes/bes.html>  ), Office of Science, US
Department of Energy, is seeking qualified applicants for two career
federal positions managing either the Photosynthetic Systems Program or
the Physical Biosciences Program.  Both programs fund mission-oriented,
basic science on plant and non-medical microbial systems at universities
and national laboratories. 

The Photosynthetic Systems Program supports fundamental research on the
biological conversion of solar energy into chemically stored forms of
energy.  This entails studies on light harvesting, exciton transfer,
charge separation, transfer of reductant to carbon dioxide, as well as
the biochemistry of carbon fixation and carbon storage.  Areas where
biological sciences intersect heavily with energy-relevant chemical
sciences and physics, such as in self-assembly of nanoscale components,
efficient photon capture and charge separation, predictive design of
catalysts, and self-repairing systems, are accentuated.

The Physical Biosciences Program combines experimental and computational
tools from the physical sciences with biochemistry and molecular
biology.  The interdisciplinary approach provides a fundamental
understanding of the complex processes that convert and store energy in
living systems.   Research supported includes studies that investigate
the mechanisms by which energy transduction systems are assembled and
maintained, the processes that regulate energy-relevant chemical
reactions within the cell, the underlying biochemical and biophysical
principals that determine the architecture of biopolymers and the plant
cell wall, and active site protein chemistry that provides a basis for
highly selective and efficient bioinspired catalysts.

The complementary Photosynthetic System and Physical Biosciences
Programs are described at:  http://www.sc.doe.gov/bes/eb/ebhome.html
<BLOCKED::http://www.sc.doe.gov/bes/eb/ebhome.html>  .  These programs
also intersect with other research programs of the BES Division of
Chemical Sciences, Geosciences, and Biosciences Division, described at
<BLOCKED::http://www.sc.doe.gov/bes/chm/chmhome.html>  . For questions
about this position and working at BES, please contact Richard Greene,
