Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s (LBNL) ESIE Electronics Systems Group in the Engineering Division has an opening for an Electronics Engineer to join the team.

In this exciting role, you will support the Advanced Light Source (ALS), National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM), and our partner scientific divisions in developing electronics readout systems for  leading edge experiments and scientific research. You will focus on electronics designs for a variety of different types of detectors and data acquisition readout systems.  Your assignments will primarily range from electronics circuit simulation, design, layout and fabrication, circuit debugging, test stand development for data acquisition systems for scientific applications.  

 

What You Will Do:

  • Design and simulate electronic circuits and printed circuit boards for sensor data acquisition (DAQ) systems, including those that incorporate custom ASICs developed by the IC group at LBL.
  • Develop test stands, test, debug and validate circuit designs for DAQ systems and custom ASICs.
  • Document ongoing and completed work and present it at conferences and workshops as opportunities arise.
  • Interact with a broad range of engineers, scientists, students, post-docs, technicians, and administrative staff.
  • Work collaboratively with scientists and engineers both from LBNL and from other institutions to implement recommendations, requirements, and specifications, and implement solutions.

 

Additional Responsibilities as needed:

  • Lead engineering associates and technicians; provide oversight on their work to assure that task completion is timely and of quality.
  • Design and implement FPGA-based systems through modeling, firmware development, and testing in support of the many activities in the division and at the laboratory. 
  • Supervise and provide daily guidance to students and interns.
  • Support the preparation of new proposals, from the development of technical concepts to the preparation of budgets and schedules.

 

What is Required:

  • Masters degree in Engineering or Bachelors Degree in Engineering with a minimum of 5 years relevant experience.
  • Direct experience in circuit design, schematic capture, and printed circuit board layout design.
  • Direct experience in modeling and design of electronic circuits for DAQ systems and custom ASIC tests, including implementation and optimization in scientific applications.
  • Knowledge and experience related to the design of scientific instrumentation, data acquisition systems, and computer control systems.
  • Demonstrated ability to pro-actively develop and implement solutions to a variety of technical problems.
  • Demonstrated ability to make independent decisions, solve unique problems, and interact effectively within a diverse team.
  • Effective oral and written communications skills sufficient to document, present, and summarize results of research and development activities.
  • Extensive knowledge of CAD tools for schematic capture and printed circuit board design, such as PADS, OrCAD, KiCad, etc.
  • Sound judgment and knowledge of current principles and practices in mechanical, electrical, and manufacturing engineering.

 

Desired Qualifications:

  • Knowledge and experience with simulations and programming of FPGAs in hardware design language such as Verilog and/or VHDL.
  • Experience working in a research and development environment.

 

Notes:

  • This is a full time, 2 years, term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values at Berkeley Lab. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Successful candidates for our faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion.
  • Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
