Job Description

Open Date: March 17, 2020

Close Date: April 17, 2020

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 South Dakota and at locations around the world, including Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole.

We are strategic risk-takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, 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.

Fermilab seeks an Associate Cryogenic Engineer to support expanding project Computer-Aided Design needs. The candidate will work in a team environment under the supervision of a more senior engineer or scientist. This position will support cryogenic projects within the Cryogenic Sector of Fermilab. This includes cryogenic design support of the Proton Improvement Plan-II (PIP-II) which is a new leading-edge superconducting linear particle accelerator under development at Fermilab. This accelerator's high-intensity proton beam will power a broad range of particle physics experiments for decades to come with the potential to revolutionize our understanding of the universe. Project tasks will include cryogenic component design and component selection, in-house oversight of fabrication and installation, and generation of supporting documentation.

We are looking for:
  • Associates degree in mechanical drafting and design from an accredited institution
  • Superior 3D solid modeling skills
  • Knowledge of Siemens NX and Teamcenter strongly preferred
  • Knowledge of cryogenic systems and process systems
  • A strong mechanical design background including vacuum jacketed cryogenic piping, pressure vessels, and piping mechanical supports
  • Ability to effectively direct drafters for the generation of 2D drawings from mature 3D models
  • Ability to select commercially available products
  • 10+ years of mechanical design experience
  • Working in a team environment
  • Must be available for occasional project overtime
  • Collaborate with technical staff to verify system functionality and performance utilizing strong oral and written communication skills
  • Must be able to see the big picture and pay attention to details while performing problem-solving analysis on a flexible range of project tasks
  • Ability to generate mechanical drawings and process flow schematics
  • Ability to use a computer for performing engineering analysis, writing reports, and creating presentations
  • Must meet qualification requirements to work in an oxygen deficiency hazard or interlocked area

Relocation is available for this position

Physical Activity and Work Environment

Human Factors: Mental Concentration, Sitting, Standing, Tight Work Schedule

Physical Factors: Cryogenics, High Voltage, Oxygen Deficiency Hazard

PPE: Eye/Face/Foot/Hand/Hearing Protection

Diverse people. Diverse jobs. Great science.
Fermilab is America's particle physics and accelerator laboratory.
Fermilab is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Minorities/Women/Disabled/Veterans are encouraged to apply.
