Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov) delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation's future. Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 37 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research. The Lab is primarily supported by the U.S. Department;of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science. Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) operates and manages the Laboratory for DOE. BSA is a partnership between Battelle and The Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University.
The mission of the Collider-Accelerator Department (C-AD) is to operate, maintain, improve, and upgrade the suite of electron, proton, and heavy ion accelerators used to carry out a program of accelerator-based experiments at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). To support this program, the C-AD must design, fabricate, assemble, test, install, and operate unique research equipment to generate, transport, transfer, accelerate, focus, track, collide, and absorb high intensity particle beams up to energies of 250 GeV. This includes a combination of custom designed and built parts and vendor produced components developed by a collaboration of the C-AD scientific, engineering, and technical staff. The C-AD supports an international user community of over 1,500 scientists. The C-AD performs all these functions in an environmentally responsible and safe manner, under a rigorous conduct of operations approach.
The Collider Accelerator Department has an opening for an Electrical Engineer to design, develop, integrate, commission and support the operation of complex beam line instrumentation systems. These include beam current and charge monitoring devices, screen and wire transverse profile monitors, position monitors, and tune meters. The position involves responsibilities for existing and future planned beam line instrumentation components, signal processing electronics, calibrations, interface to the Linux based Controls system and overall performance to meet the needs of the physics program. Will work as a contributing and productive member of a team of engineers and assist in the direction of technicians during all phases of component selection, prototyping, construction, commissioning and equipment operation. The Accelerator Components & Instrumentation Group is responsible for operation and upgrade of a wide variety of beam instrumentation systems for the RHIC (Relatvistic Heavy Ion Collider) complex of particle accelerators and other existing and planned accelerator systems. This will require understanding of systems details within your responsibility and understanding how and why they are important to the overall operation of the machines. Must possess the keen ability to push the leading edge and recommend methods for solving problems.
