WHY WORK AT BNL?
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 world-class facilities and expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science—from the birth of our universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. We operate cutting-edge 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 managed 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 Nuclear and Particle Physics (NPP) Directorate of Brookhaven National Laboratory is to provide state-of-the-art experimental user facilities for nuclear and high-energy physics research and to conduct world leading research in high-energy nuclear and particle physics.
The NPP mission includes the design, development, construction, commissioning and operation of accelerators to carry out accelerator-based experiments in an environmentally responsible and safe manner, as well as the conduct of accelerator R&D towards the next generation of accelerator facilities and accelerator applications in support of national needs.
The NPP Directorate also encompasses vibrant programs in experimental and theoretical research in nuclear and high-energy physics. This includes serving as the host Laboratory for the U.S. part of the ATLAS Collaboration working at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. It also includes a strong program in neutrino science and a focused program in cosmology. The experimental research is supported by cutting-edge developments in accelerator science and technology and in detector technology.
The Directorate consists of the Physics Department, the Collider-Accelerator Department, the Superconducting Magnet Division, and the Instrumentation Division, encompassing approximately 750 full-time equivalent staff.
The Physics Department has an extensive research program in Nuclear Physics, including leading roles in experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and a broad effort in theoretical nuclear physics associated with Quantum Chromodynamics.
The Collider-Accelerator Department develops, improves and operates the suite of accelerators used to carry out the program of accelerator-based experiments at the Laboratory.
The Superconducting Magnet Division (SMD) designs, builds, and tests superconducting magnets for use in particle accelerators world-wide. The SMD also builds magnets for various other applications (e.g., Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage) and also provides magnetic measurement services lab-wide.
The Instrumentation Division develops state-of-the-art radiation instrumentation required for research programs at BNL and to maintain the expertise and facilities in specialized high technology areas essential for this work.
The Nuclear and Particle Physics Directorate has an opening for Director, EIC Science. This person will be a highly regarded and experienced experimentalist who has demonstrated scientific leadership skills at the national and international levels.
The selected candidate will be placed at the appropriate scientific level depending on depth and breadth of relevant knowledge and skills he or she brings to the position, as well as the amount of relevant experience.
- Assure that a strong scientific case for the EIC is developed emphasizing the specific discovery possibilities of the eRHIC.
- Assure that the developing experimental program and detector R&D address the most important eRHIC science enabled by the eRHIC.
- Represent, together with other Lab and community leaders, the compelling scientific capabilities of eRHIC to the scientific community and other stakeholders.
Required Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
- PhD in experimental nuclear physics or a closely related field
- At least fifteen years of experience in the field of nuclear physics research with significant scientific accomplishments
Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
- Experience with management and coordination of R&D activities funded by the DOE Office of Science
