The Blavatnik Regional Awards acknowledge and celebrate the excellence of outstanding postdoctoral scientists from institutions in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. 

Each institution is invited to nominate up to fifteen postdoctoral researchers in any category:  Chemistry, Life Sciences, and Physical Sciences & Engineering, and we are encouraging all institutions to take advantage of the full 15 possible nominations. Candidates from Brookhaven National Laboratory who are interested in being nominated may contact Kathleen Barkigia for more details on the institutional selection process and how to be considered.

The Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists strive for nominee equality and diversity and strongly encourage the nomination of women and members of other historically underrepresented groups in science and engineering.

Brookhaven’s Association of Students And Postdocs (ASAP) is for all postdocs, students and early career scientists. Our aim is to improve the quality of life of our members, and to act as a magnet to bring together students and postdocs in a social setting. The socials, meet ups, sharing and interaction is key to a successful career at BNL! Please share this with postdocs, students & early career scientists in your group. Support your ASAP Board members who are working hard for you!

The Lounge is located on the corner of Bell Ave/Center Street, in Bldg 462 and is open Monday-Friday from 8am to 8pm. Post-docs may come and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and networking shared over snacks, watching TV or playing foosball, pool or ping pong. The ASAP Lounge can be used as a quiet place to have lunch with colleagues or watch the soccer finals. Well supervised children may be permitted.
