Our Research Laboratories:

Rare earth catalysis: Latimer Hall, 539, 547. See also the CATlab. Actinide and transuranic chemistry: Bldg 70, rms 203/209 (where our single crystal X-ray diffractometer is situated) and the HERL (Heavy Element Research Lab) where we have now installed a double glove box for transuranic chemistry. The HERL is a unique facility in which Berkeley Lab’s Heavy Element Chemistry Program works together to study the fundamental chemical properties of the transuranics. We are able to work with any isotope in this facility. See also HEC.

Work with us: We are currently recruiting PhD and postdocs to work in one or both of our newly refurbished labs. Contact us for further information, and also to discuss fellowship opportunities.
