Magnet Engineer

with expertise in accelerator magnets and applied superconductivity

Your tasks

The work will be part of the design and the qualification of the magnets (permanent, normal conducting and superconducting) for the upgrade of the Swiss Light Source, in particular for the superconducting super-bends.

  • The magnetic and thermo-mechanical design of the superconducting super -bends but also the design of permanent and electro-magnets for accelerator
  • The follow up of the production of the superconducting magnets
  • To perform the tests at cryogenic temperature of the superconducting magnets
  • The performance analysis at cryogenic temperature (power tests, magnetic measurements)

Your profile

You have an engineering diploma or a PhD degree in applied physics and a background in Multiphysics simulations (e.g. COMSOL, OPERA, Ansys). You have experience in applied superconductivity and superconducting magnets. Hands-on experience with the follow up of the production of magnet components is a clear asset. As a team-oriented and communicative person you enjoy working in an interdisciplinary group. You act independently, show initiative and are practice-oriented. Good knowledge of English is mandatory; knowledge of German is a plus.
