Requisition Number: 10756
Job Category: Engineers
Percentage of Travel: 1-25
POSITION REVISED SEPTEMBER 11, 2012
POSITION POSTED: JUNE 27, 2012
SALARY RANGE: $54,400 - $85,800 (SE I)
SALARY RANGE: $68,500 - $108,100 (SE II)
The incumbent will be a member of the Engineering Division providing general mechanical engineering support for the design of superconducting experimental magnets, detector support structures and/or superconduction accelerator structures. The main focus for the near future will be on finite element analysis utilizing ANSYS to model structures that must resist large magnetic or thermally induced forces using low mass assemblies. This engineer will work as part of a team on large scale projects. The engineer working with physicists will help develop specifications for systems to be designed. The successful candidate is expected to provide engineering support for projects from conception through design, fabrication, assembly and commissioning for complex engineered systems. The engineer will be required to provide schedule and resource information to management for planning and tracking progress of projects. The candidate will be required to present technical status reports, defend the design at engineering design reviews or safety reviews and produce system documentation as needed. The engineer will direct and supervise design staff and work with technicians and other engineers as the need and project complexity grows.
B.S. or M.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering or Physics with at least 4 years experience in an engineering capacity for the SE II Level The candidate should have a demonstrated fluency with 3D CAD software design tools. Individual should have experience with engineering analysis tools such as ANSYS and IDEAS, doing either mechanical, thermal or fluid dynamic analysis, or TOSCA 3D Magnetic analysis. A firm foundation in mechanical engineering principles and practice are also necessary. Prior work experience as an engineer at a National Laboratory, Industrial Research Laboratory or University Research facility is desirable.
