We are seeking someone with precision mechanical assembly skills to fill a vacancy in the insertion devices group at Diamond Light Source Ltd. Synchrotron insertion devices are linear arrays of permanent magnets aligned either side of the electron beam that cause the beam to oscillate resulting in light, in the form of X-rays, being emitted forming the main light sources for our scientific users.

Applicants should have experience in a high precision mechanical workshop environment and be familiar with measuring instruments, alignment methods and ideally have some machining experience. A familiarity with permanent magnet assemblies and/or ultra high vacuum would be an advantage, but is not essential.
