Company Description

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.

Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.

Job Description

The TTE programme is aimed at technicians who are looking for a challenging professional experience which furthers their career.

Introduction

The Kicker Design and Construction section (KDC) of the Accelerator Beam Transfer group (ABT) is responsible for the electromechanical design, mechanical engineering, and construction of equipment for Kicker Systems across the entire CERN's accelerator complex. We use mainly CATIA™ and ANSYS for all the design work in our section.

Functions

As a member of the Kicker Design and Construction team, you will participate in the mechanical engineering of fast pulsed systems for accelerator beam extraction and injection systems. These systems mainly comprise magnet modules, vacuum tanks, high-voltage and high-current pulse generators, power transmission, and hydraulic systems.

As a CAD technician, you will also:

  • Use CATIA™ to produce 3D models and 2D ISO standard construction drawings for pulse generators, kicker magnets, and control systems; 
  • Maintain and update Bill of Materials (BOM) for the manufacture of the components;
  • Follow-up of the orders, production and supply.

Specific skills required for this job

Experience of 3D and 2D Computer Aided Design (CAD).

Your application will be considered by a panel of CERN experts for a place within the programme.

The next meeting of these experts will take place in October 2021.

Qualifications

In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • You are a national of a CERN Member State or Associate Member State (https://home.cern/about/member-states);
  • You have a Technical Diploma (careers.cern/ttediplomas) in mechanical engineering or general engineering, and no more than 4 years' relevant experience after finishing your diploma;
  • If you are currently studying, you are still eligible to apply, although you are expected to have obtained your qualification by the start of your appointment at CERN;
  • If you hold a BSc or MSc, you are not eligible. However you may be eligible for the Fellowship Programme.

You should have at least a working knowledge of English OR French.
