Why Work at BNL? Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov) 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.
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 NSLS-II Photon Science Division is seeking a well-organized and dedicated engineer and project manager to assist the division staff in the execution of beamline development projects for the world leading NSLS-II facility. This work will include planning and coordinating the design, specification, procurement, and installation of advanced x-ray optics and experimental equipment, and serving as a project Control Account Manager (CAM). The role will require excellent interpersonal and communication skills and organizational proficiency to ensure that projects are completed on schedule and within budget.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
Collaborate with Lead Scientist and other scientific staff to propose the project technical scope, resource requirements, and risk mitigation plans.
Develop and maintain the costs and schedule using Earned Value Management principles to deliver the project scope as defined by the lead scientist and approved by the project director.
Develop and submit Project Change Requests (PCRs) with concurrence of the Lead Scientist.
Coordinate the development of procurement documentation, including Statements of Work (SOW) and technical specifications, and oversight of procurement activities.
Provide required work control coordination of NSLS-II staff, BNL trades and external contractors during installation phase of the project.
Provide support for lower-level CAMs and Work Package Manager staff who are working on project scope for which you serve as a higher-level CAM.
Participate in formal project reviews, technical design reviews and required project reporting.
Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Bachelor's degree in an engineering or science discipline or closely related field of study.
Minimum of three (3) years progressively responsible project management and / or production related work experience required.
Sound judgement and knowledge of current principles and practices in mechanical, electrical and manufacturing engineering.
Demonstrated ability to work in a process-driven environment.
Solid analytical and reasoning skills and proven ability to develop solutions to complex problems.
Strong communication skills and the ability to work effectively with a diverse group of technicians, engineers, scientists, managers and vendors.
Demonstrated proficiency in project management principles.
Knowledge of management support software tools such as Primavera or Microsoft Project.
Familiarity with earned value management project practices.
Familiarity with DOE ES&H and QA practices.
Proficiency with enterprise software tools (Microsoft Office 365).
Demonstrated oral communication skills with public speaking experience.
Other information: Candidates will be hired at the appropriate level commensurate with depth and breadth of experience.

About Brookhaven National Laboratory
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.
