We are seeking a highly motivated Electrical Designer to join the group to work on the detailed design of solutions to meet the scientific challenges we face, and enjoy interaction with leading scientists, supplier companies and technical teams building the equipment.
Diamond Light Source is located in South Oxfordshire and is one of the UK’s leading scientific facilities; providing X-Ray beams of exceptional brightness for use by scientists to probe the atomic building blocks of physical and biological matter.
The Beamline Systems Engineering team plays a key role in the design, development and construction of the Beamlines that transport light from the electron accelerator to the scientific sample. 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.
If you are a talented early career graduate with not as much directly relevant knowledge and experience you are invited to apply for the Electrical Designer position. The emphasis is on having an excellent grasp of engineering principles and an interest in systems!
To deliver world class science for the UK we need engineering solutions to match so if you feel you have the imagination to think outside the box taking a view of the whole system, coupled with expertise in the areas mentioned above, this vacancy will be of interest to you.
