  • Direct the development and support of cryogenic test facilities for superconducting magnet R&D tests.

  • Oversee integration of cryostat subsystems including magnets, cooling systems, current leads, ultra-high-vacuum (UHV) beam chamber systems, and other support elements into the overall SCU design.

  • Coordinate and oversee high-level integration activities between SCUs and other APS beamline components.

  • Direct and organize conceptual, preliminary and final design reviews of SCU subsystems and the overall SCU design.Direct and organize procurement readiness reviews of SCU subsystems and installation readiness reviews of complete SCU designs.

  • Generate resource-loaded project plans for SCU activity and manage plans to successful outcomes.

  • Direct and oversee the performance of safety evaluations involving pressure, cryogenic, and other fluid systems typically encountered in SCU installations.Direct and oversee the performance of oxygen deficiency hazard (ODH) analyses and the implementation of mitigating control measures.

Other duties include:

  • Represent the APS at relevant domestic and international cryogenics-related meetings, conferences and workshops via oral and poster presentations, including written contributions to published proceedings.Represent the APS at design reviews by providing managerial and technical presentations in support of SCU system design.Provide key strategic contributions to SCU projects and other cryogenics-related activities.

  • Provide project management and cryogenic systems expertise to the greater ANL community and the domestic and international cryogenics and SCU communities by service on a broad range of internal and external project review committees.

  • Serve as an expert in the field, subject matter expert (SME) and resource in SCU cryogenic systems.

Position Requirements

Knowledge, skills and experience:

  • Bachelor's and 12+ years, Master's and 7+ years, or Doctorate and 6+ years

  • Extensive experience with cryogenic systems in support of superconducting magnet technology including cryocooler-based refrigeration systems; knowledge of superconducting magnet design and operation

  • Considerable experience with cryogenic control systems, cryogenic system implementation, commissioning, and operation

  • Extensive knowledge of safe cryogenic engineering practice including pressure, cryogenic, and oxygen deficiency hazards
