Subsurface Biogeochemical Research Program

DOE User Facilities Enabling Science

Synchrotron-Based Biogeochemical and Interfacial Research


Argonne National Laboratory Science Focus Area (SFA)

The Argonne National Laboratory SFA program integrates synchrotron-based biogeochemistry with microbiology, molecular biology, and protein biochemistry to pursue the long-term scientific objective of elucidating the molecular basis of the interplay between specific microbial metabolic activities, solution chemistry, and mineralogy contributing to contaminant transformations at DOE field sites.


Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource SFA

The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource SFA program  focuses on the fundamental interfacial, molecular-, and nanoscale processes that control contaminant and nutrient cycling in the biosphere with the goal of elucidating global elemental cycles and anthropogenic influences on the environment.



DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications! Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: Applications due May 16, 2017 5:00PM Eastern Time
