Beam Diagnostics Engineer
The Accelerator Division at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden, invites applications for a "Beam Diagnostics Engineer".
Description of department
The Accelerator Division is responsible for the design, construction, commissioning and operation of the ESS accelerator. The pulsed superconducting linac, to be built in Lund, will produce a 5MW average power proton beam, driving the world’s most powerful neutron source. The Beam Diagnostics Group works alongside the other groups in the Accelerator Division to define and design the beam diagnostics systems for the ESS accelerator.
Description of position
The successful candidate will take a leading role in pre-construction Design and Development of ESS Accelerator beam diagnostics, with a particular focus on hardware. He/she will be responsible for development, evaluation and overall coordination of hardware solutions for ESS beam diagnostics systems. He/she will also interface with the controls and RF groups on hardware issues. Due to the collaborative nature of the ESS project, significant travel may be required.
- Candidates should have an MSc (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering, Accelerator Science or a closely related field, and about ten years or more of work experience (which could include a PhD) in the area of analog/digital signal processing, including applications for Beam Diagnostics.
- Experience with sensor design, EM simulations, accelerator RF, timings systems, as well as machine protection systems would be preferred.
- A good general understanding of accelerator science is required, and control room experience in accelerator operation would be a significant advantage.
- Candidates should have demonstrated the ability to work efficiently both independently and as part of a group. Previous experience with international collaboration is preferred.
- Good working knowledge of the English language is essential, and knowledge of other languages would beneficial.
