Brookhaven National Laboratory is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Located on the center of Long Island, New York, Brookhaven Lab brings premier facilities and expertise to the most exciting and relevant questions in basic and applied science—from the birth of our universe to the balanced energy technology of tomorrow. We operate groundbreaking large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Our award-winning history, including seven Nobel Prizes, stretches back to 1947, and we continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven is operated and run by Brookhaven Science Associates, which was founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.
The mission of the Collider-Accelerator Department (C-AD) is to develop, improve and operate the suite of particle / heavy ion accelerators used to carry out the program of accelerator-based experiments at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL); to support the experimental program including design, construction and operation of the beam transports to the experiments, plus support of detector and research needs of the experiments; to design and construct new accelerator facilities in support of the BNL and national missions. The C-A Department supports an international user community of over 1,500 scientists. The department performs all these functions in an environmentally responsible and safe manner, under a rigorous conduct of operations approach.
The C-AD / Electron Ion Collider (EIC R&D) Division has an opening for an Advanced Technical Associate in the e-source development group to establish and operate the new Electron Source Laboratory(ESL), to provide stat of the art cathodes for the Low Energy RHIC electron Cooling Project(LEReC), Coherent electron Cooling (CeC) proof of principal experiment, to perform advanced cathode R&D and development the Polarized e- Source and pre-injector systems for the BNL-EIC.
Under the technical direction of the group leader, the selected candidate will detail existing equipment, provide fabrication drawings for new components and assemblies used in vacuum and other mechanical systems using 3D design software, fabricate, assemble, test, and operate equipment and systems for the ESL. You will be encouraged to exercise a high degree of initiative and judgement to plan, coordinate, and perform design, manufacturing, testing and system operations to achieve the programmatic priorities associated with the above projects and experiments.
