Brookhaven National Laboratory Electrical/Computer Engineer, Beam Instrumentation in Upton, New York

Electrical/Computer Engineer, Beam Instrumentation Job ID 3698 Date posted 04/04/2023 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. BSA salutes our veterans and active military members with careers that leverage the skills and unique experience they gained while serving our country. Our organization fully supports service members transitioning from active duty to civilian life and pledge's our commitment to actively hire veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. Military personnel who have been formally trained or have relevant experience obtained while in service may meet educational requirements and are encouraged to apply for job opportunities at BSA. Organizational Overview 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. Position Description The Collider-Accelerator Department has an opening for an Electrical/Computer Engineer in the Instrumentation Group to design, develop, integrate, commission and support the operation of complex beam instrumentation systems. In this role you will engage in an exciting career developing cutting edge beam instrumentation systems in support of the existing collider-accelerator facility and the future electron-ion collider (EIC) to be constructed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. You will also assist and contribute to the development of complete system solutions to satisfy the physics and operational needs of these complicated machines. Developments may include analog and digital electronic designs, schematic and PCB layouts, feedback control systems, ADCs (analog to digital converter), DACs (digital to analog converter), simulations, digital filter design, gate arrays, VHDL coding, software development and documentation. You will collaborate with multidisciplinary personnel, including accelerator physicists, operators, technicians and other engineers. If you possess solid electronic and/or computer engineering knowledge and you have a thirst for solving difficult engineering problems, we would be happy to train you in the exciting field of accelerators.
