Brookhaven National Laboratory delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation's future. Primarily supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science, 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.
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.
Brookhaven National Laboratory is entering an exciting new chapter with one of the newest and most advanced synchrotron facilities in the world. National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II ) enables the study of material properties and functions with nanoscale resolution and exquisite sensitivity by providing world-leading capabilities for X-ray imaging and high-resolution energy analysis.
This facility is open to users from academia and industry and its operations are at a time when the world enters a new era with a global economy fueled largely by scientific discoveries and technological innovations. NSLS-II provides the research tools needed to foster new discoveries and create breakthroughs in critical areas such as energy security, environment, and human health.
The NSLSII Accelerator Division Dept/Division has an opening for an Electronic Technician to repair, troubleshoot, construct, install and test electronic equipment and chassis for large power supply systems used at NSLSII.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
Troubleshoot and repair complex power supply systems using electronic test equipment.
Support the development and construction of prototype power supplies.
Repair and replace surface mounted components and circuit boards in power supply systems.
Support operations and repair and troubleshoot power supply systems during on and off hours.
