About Brookhaven National Laboratory Brookhaven National Laboratory ( 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.

Organization Overview The Electronic Detector Group (EDG) in the Physics Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory has major current responsibilities centered on an extensive neutrino program focused on the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and including Daya Bay, PROSPECT and the short baseline neutrino program at FNAL (SBN), as well as development of associated detectors. BNL has significant leadership in rare process research, including g-2 and Belle II. The EDG currently has twenty-five physicists at various career levels and a long history of research in fundamental particle physics. In collaboration with BNL's Instrumentation Division, the group develops electronics and detector systems for liquid-argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPCs). In collaboration with BNL's Chemistry Department, the group develops water-based liquid scintillator and reactor neutrino experiments.
