Brookhaven National Lab Director Search

Brookhaven Science Associates is seeking an internationally recognized science leader with a demonstrated record of high achievement in leading-edge scientific research and management to serve as the Director of Brookhaven National Laboratory.

On Feb. 23, 2022, Brookhaven National Laboratory Director Doon Gibbs announced his decision to step down in December 2022 after more than nine years as the Lab's top executive and president of Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA), the company that manages Brookhaven for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

In June 2022, the BSA Board launched an international search for Director Gibbs' successor. Battelle and Stony Brook University (SBU)—the two partners in BSA—have empaneled a diverse search committee that will be chaired by Susan Hubbard (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) and George Sterman (Stony Brook University). The search process is expected to conclude with the announcement of a new director in the November/December 2022 timeframe.
