Detection Systems
Job Description
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is seeking to establish a robust analog electronics research and development capability initially focused on the support of radiation detection systems.

Ultimately, this capability may support the broad range of research topics pursued by PNNL staff and collaborators.

A full complement of analog electronics capability is needed including integrating commercial products and systems, developing discrete analog electronic solutions and designing, fabricating, testing and implementing analog and mixed signal ASIC's.

A robust digital electronics capability already exists.
This person will work in multi-discipline teams comprised of project managers, physicists, chemists, nuclear engineers, software developers, mechanical and electrical engineers, and technicians addressing some of our nation's most challenging problems in many domains.
Responsibilities & Accountabilities
Responsible for support research and development focused on new radiation detector systems and the application of low-noise, high speed analog electronics to specialized missions.

This research supports activities across the spectrum from fundamental science to applied missions.


Technical contributions must be recognized as having a substantial impact on the advancement of scientific or technical applications from development to deployment; transitioning knowledge to industrial and/or government clients.

The incumbent is responsible for technical leadership for software/hardware research and development.

This involves leading, networking, negotiating, effectively communication and mentoring less experienced staff.

This individual will interact heavily with clients, will be responsible for preparing successful research proposals and will take a lead role in defining future research direction and priorities.
