Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (LBNL) Engineering Division has immediate openings for Manufacturing Engineers to join their team.

 

In this role, depending on your previous experience and hiring level, you will guide or support medium to large sized projects to develop and review work instructions and verification/validation plans, set up production lines, and support vendor interactions. You will interact closely with internal and external manufacturers. Key will be your ability to build and maintain strategic business relationships while also focusing on the technical needs and logistical details of projects. The position requires a strong technical engineering background and a solid foundation in an engineering discipline such as design, measurement or assembly techniques.

 

A typical project may include the following types of equipment: particle accelerators, plasmas, and/or charged particle systems; optics: charged particle and/or x-ray; x-ray (synchrotron/FEL) beamlines; magnetic systems: normal conducting, superconducting, and/or permanent magnet; cryogenic systems; and vacuum systems.  

 

The positions will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs, skills and experience of the candidate, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.

 

Specific Responsibilities:

  • Coordinate the fabrication of scientific experimental equipment for government-sponsored national research programs and facilities under the guidance of the project lead engineer.

  • Provide manufacturing oversight to technical staff assigned to engineering projects.

  • Facilitate communication between engineering function, manufacturing, and quality control.
    Implement manufacturing and quality procedures including non-conformance and deviation reporting; oversee the engineering change order process.

  • On a project basis, manage all technical aspects of procurement and the subsequent material handling/assembly onsite through the full project life cycle.

  • Serve as the primary resource and coordinator for specific engineering projects for manufacturing procurements, onsite manufacturing, shipping/receiving, and external technical subcontractors.

  • Help establish performance criteria and specifications for manufacturing, assembly, and testing

  • Provide technical oversight for procurements and work closely with the procurement personnel (e.g., be the POC for technical aspects of drawings, understanding of technical issues; advice on vendor qualifications, technical details of contract or proposal verbiage).

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

  • Investigate potential vendors and make recommendations; be aware of and communicate vendor discrepancies and parts/equipment issues.

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

  • Facilitate material inspection, substitution, standardization, rework, salvage, utilization, and economical procurement of parts and equipment.


Additional Responsibilities as needed:

  • Contribute to the mechanical design or other technical aspects of the project.

  • Assist projects in establishing appropriate QA/QC plans for specific jobs.

  • May work with engineers or scientists to define deliverables for technically complex or challenging procurements.

  • May travel to vendors and trade shows, as appropriate.

 

Required Qualifications:

  • B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering or similar technical degree plus at least 1 year of experience in liaison/coordinator role with procurement staff, or overall equivalent experience.

  • Experience reading, understanding, and interpreting assembly, detail, and weldment drawings.

  • Understanding of the project development process, associated terminology, and quality system requirements.

  • Excellent and effective communication/interpersonal skills, meeting facilitation, organization and detail orientation with the ability to handle multiple competing priorities and projects.

  • Knowledge of the technical aspects and considerations of mechanical/manufacturing related items to determine appropriate procurements for various projects.

  • Technical knowledge of manufacturing and assembly practices and processes.

  • Experience in an R&D environment is preferred.

  • Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, or similar technical degree is preferred


The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.


Notes:

  • This is a 2-year 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.

  • Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.

  • Salary is commensurate with experience.

  • 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.
