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.

Organizational Overview

Instrumentation Division

Position Description

The Instrumentation Division is engaged in the development of ASICs for particle detectors, high-resolution X- and gamma-ray spectrometers, high-rate photon counters and imagers, with applications in large DOE and international user facilities and elsewhere. These ASICs operate with multi-element solid-state, liquid, and gas sensors, at room and cryogenic temperatures.

The Instrumentation Division has an opening for an ASIC R&D Group Leader. The successful candidate will lead and guide a team that develops advanced low-noise monolithic circuits for radiation sensors (from concept to design, layout, and characterization).

The candidate will be expected to contribute by seeking funding from federal and commercial agencies and lead efforts to produce advanced radiation detection instrumentation for a broad spectrum of the laboratory's programs.

Position Requirements

  • PhD in Electronic Engineering, Physics or related discipline.

  • Several years of experience in microelectronics.

  • Track record of developing state-of-the-art integrated circuits in CMOS technologies.

  • Experience in developing electronics as part of a team for applications in physics, particle physics, material science, medical imaging or national security.

  • Experience with Cadence design tools for schematics design (analog/mixed-signal/digital), time and frequency-domain simulation on circuit performance (power, gain, noise, and stability), physical design (layout), verification, and extraction for post-layout simulation (analog/mixed-signal/digital) and digital logic design.

  • Ability to lead a team of scientists, engineers and technical staff.

Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Experience with design and measurement of low-noise integrated circuits for scientific instrumentation.

  • Experience with multi-laboratory collaborations.
