Fermilab's Accelerator Division is seeking an Engineering Physicist I to assist with the operation, improvement, and design, of primary and secondary particle beamlines, and associated systems, for the present and future fixed target programs. The selected candidate will work with a diverse team of scientists, engineers, and technicians. Additionally, the selected candidate will be available for off-hours work as needed.
Under the general supervision of a more senior Engineering Physicist, Engineer, or Scientist, an Engineering Physicist I utilizes a fundamental knowledge of physics, together with problem-solving skills and an understanding of engineering, to design moderately complex components, processes, and systems, with a proficiency in the use of some of the following: modern analytical tools, software and hardware development, integration and testing, design of microelectronic circuitry, and the physics principles used in key modern scientific, chemical, and mechanical or engineering applications; evaluates analytic solutions to problems through engineering or physics based computations; or facilitates an operation that routinely requires understanding and application of the above designs.
Respects, understands and values individual differences that embody the principles of diversity.
Abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.
Essential Job Functions and Responsibilities
• Contribute to the operation of facilities.
• Interact with other specialists to coordinate the repair of the system, and to propose new, improved or upgraded systems.
• Analyze the collected data and present results to supervisor, other scientists, engineers, and engineering physicists; may present results at internal group meetings.
• Detect irregularities of a system through a complete understanding of the system and its subsystems.
• Assist in isolating and defining problems with proper functioning of equipment.
• Determine and monitor the safety, efficiency and operating envelope for systems or subsystem.
• Commission, evaluate the performance of, and possibly modify, the equipment associated with particle beamlines.
• Assist end-users in the development and operations of beamline systems as needed by the experiments or test users.
• Other duties as assigned.
• Undergraduate degree in physics or engineering physics and two years of work experience. A graduate degree in physics may be considered in lieu an undergraduate degree in physics; advanced course work in physics or a related field may be considered in lieu of work experience.
• Ability to successfully work within and contribute to a diverse team.
• Skill in a modern programming language, such as C++.
• Excellent communication skills.
Interested candidates should submit via Academic Jobs Online: 1) Cover letter, 2) Curriculum Vitae, or resume (including Publication List, if applicable), and 3) Two Recent Reference Letters (to be submitted by the reference writers at the AJO site).
The cover letter should include concrete examples of how the individual has meets the qualifications and demonstrated ability in the listed functions and responsibilities. For more information about this position, please contact Thomas Kobilarcik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
