 Dear Colleague,


I am currently serving on the search committee to identify a new Division Director for the Environment, Health, Safety and Security Division (EHSS) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab).


In the world of science, Berkeley Lab is synonymous with “excellence.”  Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes and fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States.  Berkeley Lab is currently undergoing a period of rapid intellectual and infrastructure expansion marked by plans to consolidate off site research facilities at a new campus, construct new supercomputing and energy research facilities at is main location, speed up the discovery, development and delivery of science solutions to the world, as well as productively engage with local and regional communities. (


The EHSS Division Director is responsible for providing leadership, information, technical assistance, policy development, and oversight that enables line management to maintain a safe workplace environment at the Lab, promote safety as an institutional core value, and insure that the Laboratory’s scientific/technical research activities are conducted in compliance with applicable policies and regulations.  As a key member of the Laboratory Operations Leadership Team, the EHSS Division Director will be called upon to make substantial leadership contributions toward achieving the Laboratory's performance goals, forge partnerships inside and outside of the Lab and to pursue best management practices all while helping to enable the breakthrough science that Berkeley Lab is known for.
