Diamond Light Source is a world class science facility providing X-ray beams of exceptional brightness for use by scientists to probe the atomic building blocks of physical and biological matter. The Engineering Group plays a key role in the design and construction of the electron accelerators and beamlines that transport the light from the electron accelerator to the scientific sample. The accelerators comprise normal and super-conducting magnets and Radio Frequency cavities to energise the electron beam. The beamlines are made up of optical elements and sample environments that employ sub-micron, multi-axis, precision motion systems operating in Ultra High Vacuum environments and often at cryogenic temperatures.

We are seeking Electrical Design Engineers to work on the detailed design of solutions to meet the scientific challenges we face.

You should have a HND or Degree and experience in designing in some of the following areas;

  • Electrical Rack design;
  • Precision motion control using stepper motors and piezo actuators;
  • Vacuum control systems;
  • Safety circuits;
  • Low Voltage systems;
  • Programmable logic controllers;
  • Distributed I/O;
  • Pneumatic controls.

Competence in using AUTOCAD would be desirable.

You should have the ability to communicate effectively, show initiative and have lots of enthusiasm.
