At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.
Join a team pushing the limits of accelerator-magnet test and measurement, to shape the future of CERN large accelerators. Take part!
You will join:
The Test and Measurements Section (TM) of the Magnet, Superconductors and Cryostat Group (MSC), as part of the Technology Department (TE), in charge of the qualification of magnetic materials, testing of devices, and magnetic measurements of normal and superconducting magnets. The TE-MSC group has the mandate to design, construct, and test superconducting as well as normal conducting magnets, and to integrate them in the CERN accelerator complex.
The mandate of the TM section includes acceptance test and characterization of the magnetic field of new and existing devices, along with electrical and power tests of superconducting magnets. This work is carried out by an interdisciplinary team of engineers/physicists, technicians, and students working in collaboration with magnet designers and beam physicists. To make these tests possible, and to achieve the accuracy level required to control particle beams, we develop and maintain highly specialised, world-class test facilities, electronic instrumentation and magnetic sensors. In addition, the section is responsible for the development and maintenance of real-time measurement systems that provide crucial feedback to various accelerator control systems.
As a hands-on electronics or mechatronics technician in the TM section, you will take an active part in the work related to the power tests and magnetic measurements of normal and superconducting magnets, including:
After an initial period, including on-the-job training, you will be expected to:
Higher technical diploma or equivalent relevant experience in the field of electronics, mechatronics or instrumentation. or a related field.
Spoken and written English or French: ability to understand and speak the other language in routine situations.
