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.
Tandem Van de Graaff (TVG) is one of the accelerator facilities in the C-AD complex. It provides about fifty ion species from protons to gold that are delivered with energies ranging from 0.8 MeV to 350 MeV. Ion beam intensities can be varied over many orders of magnitudes and accurately measured. Applications include radiation effects testing of microchips and solar cells for satellites, fabrication of ultra-fine filter materials for biology, medicine, and industry, ion implantation for the development of superior semiconductors, and calibration of space-flight instruments for NASA. In addition, ion beams can be provided for further acceleration by other C-AD accelerators. The facility consists of two model MP tandem accelerators, beam transport systems, two experimental areas and various vacuum chamber and dosimetry systems for irradiations.
The Accelerator Division within C-AD has an opening for an Accelerator Systems Engineer to play a leading role in the TVG Technical Support Team with the operations, maintenance, and upgrade of its component systems. This includes the design, construction and testing of new experimental equipment, large and small static and dynamic structures, high voltage and high current magnetic and electrostatic devices, RF components, lifting fixtures, water/air cooled systems, pressured gas handling and vacuum systems. Responsibilities will also include technical user support and the budgeting, planning, and scheduling of TVG delivered beam.
The selected candidate will be placed at the appropriate professional level dependent upon depth and breadth of relevant knowledge, skills, and experience.
