Electrical Engineer

Argonne National Laboratory Lemont , IL 60439

Posted 2 weeks ago

The Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator Facility (ATLAS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is seeking a senior electrical engineer with experience in radio frequency (RF) systems. ATLAS is the world's first heavy ion superconducting linear accelerator, and for over three decades has operated as a user facility to explore the frontiers of nuclear physics and applications. ANL is a multidisciplinary lab funded primarily through the US Department of Energy.

The candidate will work with a collaborative team of physicists, engineers, and technicians to develop devices to manipulate and deliver heavy ion beams for experiments. This position requires a strong understanding of the foundations of electrodynamics and radio frequency engineering. In general, the candidate will be involved with the design, fabrication, and operation of RF systems (6 - 110 MHz, up to 100 kW) needed to drive and control resonant cavities for the acceleration, bunching, and chopping of high energy, heavy ion beams. The candidate must be able to work independently and have experience with the full project development lifecycle from design to product fabrication and implementation.

As you will be working with a small project team and regularly interacting with operations staff, excellent communication and teamwork skills are essential. You must be a flexible, results-oriented problem-solver who requires minimal supervision. Projects can vary greatly from one to the next and the successful applicant must thrive in taking on new challenges.

Depending on the level of experience, this position may be responsible for supervising the work of other engineers or technicians.

Position Requirements

Considerable experience required with:

  • Resonant cavities

  • RF electronics and simulation tools

  • Discrete RF design

  • RF test equipment and measurements

  • General electronics and system design/fabrication

  • Troubleshooting and repair of existing electronic equipment

Electrical Engineer

  • LEVEL 3-Bachelor's & 8+ yrs, Master's & 5+ yrs or Doctorate & 4+ yrs

Senior Engineer

  • LEVEL 4-Bachelor's & 12+ yrs, Master's & 7+ yrs or Doctorate & 6+ yrs

As an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer, Argonne National Laboratory is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that fosters collaborative scientific discovery and innovation. In support of this commitment, Argonne encourages minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply for employment. Argonne considers all qualified applicants for employment without regard to age, ancestry, citizenship status, color, disability, gender, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.

Argonne employees, and certain guest researchers and contractors, are subject to particular restrictions related to participation in Foreign Government Talent Recruitment Programs, as defined and detailed in United States Department of Energy Order 486.1. You will be asked to disclose any such participation in the application phase for review by Argonne's Legal Department.

VIEW JOBS 10/15/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-01-13T00:00 The Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is the world's first heavy ion superconducting linear accelerator, and for over three decades it has operated as a national user facility to explore the frontiers of nuclear physics and its applications. The facility provides ion beams of both stable and radioactive nuclei. The stable nuclei are produced by two ECR ion sources and a surface ionization source. The radioactive nuclei are delivered to the accelerator via an EBIS operating in a charge breeding mode. The Ion Source Group, responsible for the operation and development of these ion sources, is searching for exceptional ion source engineer candidates. This position will support the ATLAS experimental program through the development and delivery of a wide variety of ion beams and have a major role in developing, constructing, and commissioning a new high-intensity ECR ion source. The candidate will be expected to work within a small group and regularly interact with operations and scientific staff. Excellent communication and teamwork skills are essential. The ideal candidate will be a flexible, results-oriented problem-solver who requires minimal supervision. Position Requirements Position Requirements: * Comprehensive understanding of a field of engineering or physics related to high-charge state ECR ion sources and/or electron beam ion sources * Development, preparation, and delivery of a wide variety of ion beams for the ATLAS experimental program * Participation in the development, assembly, and commissioning of a new ECR ion source * High degree of self-motivation, independence, and follow through * Presentation and discussion of results at international conferences and publication in scientific journals Preferred Experience: * Knowledge in the fields of plasma physics, ion beam transport, RF technology, vacuum technology, high voltage engineering, and electronics are beneficial * Laboratory instrumentation – oscilloscopes and multimeters * 2D and/or 3D Computer Aided Drafting and Dimensioning * Charged particle simulation software * Electric and magnetic modeling software RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT MINIMUM EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE OR EQUIVALENT COMBINATIONS FOR INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTORS: * Level 1: Bachelor's & 0 years or Master's & 0 years * Level 2: Bachelor's & 5+ years, or Master's & 3+ years or Doctorate & 0 years Position is posted at RD1 and RD2 grade levels dependent on candidates education and experience. This job description documents the general nature of work but is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all activities, duties and responsibilities required of job incumbent. Consequently, job incumbent may be required to perform other duties as assigned.
