Electrical Staff Engineer

We Are: Fermilab is America's premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole. We are strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, and administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park. The Fermilab Neutrino Division seeks a highly motivated Electrical Staff Engineer (Engineer II) to join its Technical Support Department. The selected candidate will be assigned to the Liquid Argon (LAr) Detector Engineering Group so as to contribute to the development and operation of experimental detectors for neutrino physics research. Under the supervision of more experienced engineers, he or she will produce and maintain control systems for neutrino detector cryogenics. The selected candidate will perform basic engineering tasks necessary from the design stages through review, procurement, manufacture, installation, testing, and operation of these systems as an integrated component within the overall neutrino detectors. Work will include design, analysis, fabrication, installation, commissioning, and documentation of cryogenic control systems. Additionally, the selected candidate will contribute to the electricalinfrastructure of neutrino detectors, providing exposure to any and all detector sub-systems.   You Will Work in a collaborative environment of people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experience, and ideas Contribute to all aspects of control systems, including a definition of system architecture, a design of electrical assemblies, cable routing, configuration and programming of PLCs, setup of SCADA/HMI, and alarm management Participate in all aspects of electricalinfrastructure, including detector grounding scheme, building power distribution, circuit loading, and rack protection systems Research and propose solutions to engineering problems Produce drawings, analysis, engineering reports, procedures, and presentations Serve on safety panels or review committees to audit the documentation provided for other project installations along with the associated engineering analysis Ensure all electrical equipment complies with laboratory standards. This includes equipment designed by you and by others, reviewed by you Review and approve work before hardware and financial commitments are made to ensure conformance to specifications and cost and time constraints Provide technical direction to draftspersons, designers, engineering associates, technicians or less senior engineers as assigned to specific projects Serve on Laboratory ES&H subcommittees and ad hoc groups Respect, understand and value individual differences that embody the principles of diversity Abide by all environmental, safety, and health regulations   We Are Looking For BS in Electrical Engineering (or related field) with 5+ years work experience or MS in Electrical Engineering (or related field) with 3+ years work experience (BS or MSdegree must be from an accredited institution) Experience designing electrical assemblies (racks/panels/boxes of electrical equipment) Knowledge of safety-related design aspects (grounding, wire sizing, fuses/circuit breakers); familiarity with NEC preferred, but not required Knowledge of grounding and shielding for noise mitigation Familiarity with system architecture (i.e. networks/communication, single-line diagrams) Experience with control system components (i.e. controllers, drives, sensors) Programming/scripting expertise; PLC-based preferred, but not required Experience with GUIs or HMIs; familiarity with ISA standards preferred, but not required Experience creating engineering documentation (requirements, reports, procedures) Good verbal and written communication skills Ability to work within a team atmosphere Experience with cost and schedule estimation beneficial, but not required Knowledge of thermal systems (cryogenics in particular) beneficial, but not required Experience with PCB design beneficial, but not required Experience with continuous improvement (i.e. kaizen) beneficial, but not required Physical Activity and Work Conditions Human Factors: Mental Concentration, Repetitive Motion, Sitting, Tight Work Schedule, Visually Demanding Chemical Factors: Dust, Epoxies, Solvents, Welding Physical Factors: Confined Space, Cryogens, Oxygen Deficiency Hazard   Diverse People, Diverse Jobs Equal Opportunity Employer: Race/Color/Sex/Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity/Religion/National Origin/Disability/Vet

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
