Fermilab (www.fnal.gov) is America’s only national laboratory fully dedicated to particle physics research. By building some of the most complex and powerful particle accelerators and detectors in the world, scientists at Fermilab expand humankind’s understanding of matter, energy, space and time.

Fermi Research Alliance, LLC (FRA) manages Fermilab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science. FRA is an alliance of the University of Chicago and the Universities Research Association (URA), a consortium of 86 universities. FRA combines the depth and commitment of the University of Chicago with the broad involvement of URA universities for the benefit of Fermilab, the particle physics community and the nation.

Fermilab’s Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) Project is seeking an LBNF/DUNE-US Project Controls Manager to join the team. The LBNF/DUNE-US Project (https://lbnf-dune.fnal.gov) is hosted by Fermilab in Batavia, IL, but includes participation from Universities and Laboratories from around the world. The project includes construction of the world’s most powerful neutrino beam and a near detector at Fermilab as well as a large underground detector at the Sanford Underground Research Laboratory (SURF) in Lead, South Dakota. The LBNF/DUNE project will design and construct one of the largest neutrino experiments in the world in the next decade.
Reporting directly to the LBNF/DUNE-US Project Manager, the Project Controls Manager will be responsible for successfully leading the LBNF/DUNE-US Project Controls Group in conformance with the requirements of DOE Order 413.3b and Fermilab EVM system requirements.
