Brookhaven National Laboratory is looking for a dynamic leader with a passion for discovery, innovation and excellence, a leader who embraces the Lab’s core value of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, to serve as the Technical Director, Electron Ion Collider.

Brookhaven National Laboratory was recently chosen as the building site for the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), a one-of-a-kind nuclear physics research facility. The EIC will be a discovery machine for unlocking the secrets of the “glue” that binds the building blocks of visible matter in the universe. The machine design is based on the existing and highly optimized RHIC Ion-Ion collider. It will consist of two intersecting accelerators, one producing an intense beam of electrons, the other a beam of protons or heavier atomic nuclei which are steered into collisions. Beyond sparking scientific discoveries in a new frontier of fundamental physics, the Electron-Ion Collider will trigger technological breakthroughs that have broad-ranging impact on human health and national challenges. The Electron Ion Collider (EIC) Technical Director reports to the EIC Project Director. This position is the EIC principal point-of-contact for the technical performance of the EIC scope of work and ensures that the project produces, installs, and commissions components that meet technical specifications and result in the EIC project meeting DOE approved performance parameters.

In this role, you will:

• Serve as the technical design authority for the project.

• Direct and coordinate supporting R&D and commissioning activities with construction activities.

• Provide institutional coordination and oversight for the efforts to design, construct, integrate, and commission the components of EIC into RHIC and BNL infrastructure.

• Serve as the primary point-of-contact for the EIC Machine Advisory Committee (MAC) and for project-wide technical reviews.

• Direct and coordinate the EIC design, systems engineering, and technical integration teams.

Brookhaven National Laboratory is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
