Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (LBNL) Engineering Division has immediate openings for Magnetics Engineers (Multiple Opening) to join the team.


The Engineering Department supports programs and projects throughout the prestigious Lawrence Berkeley National laboratory and scientific experimental community. Created in 1931,  LBNL is the first National Laboratory and has had 13 Nobel prize winners on its staff.  It now employees 4400 scientists, engineers and administrators on a beautiful campus overlooking the San Francisco Bay.


You will Independently perform a variety of engineering tasks using a broad array of analytical, computational, experimental, instrumentation, and hardware design skills in the development of storage ring lattice magnet and specialty magnet design, fabrication, and testing for applications including synchrotron rings, end stations, and other accelerator magnet projects. You will be responsible for certain sub-projects and sub-groups within a larger project/program.


This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs; and skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Use a broad array of analytical, computational, experimental, instrumentation, and hardware design skills in the development of storage ring lattice magnet and specialty magnet design,  fabrication, and measurement.

  • Oversee the design, construction, and installation of the accelerator and specialty magnets for national user facilities, such as the Advanced Light Source and other accelerator and light source facilities.

  • Analyze magnet technical data, designs, preliminary specifications, manufacturing limitations, supplier facilities, and availability of parts and equipment.

  • Establish performance criteria and specifications for manufacturing, assembly, and testing.

  • Write specifications for technically complex or challenging magnet procurements; including the gathering and organization of technical details and requirements.

  • Provide technical oversight to procurement staff, e.g. technical aspects of drawings, understanding of technical issues advice on vendor qualifications, and technical details of contracts.
