Job Description

Open Date: January 8, 2020

Close Date: January 29, 2020

Owned by the U.S. Department of Energy and operated by Fermi Research Alliance, LLC, Fermilab is home to the country's premier High Energy Physics program and host to over 1500 physicists, scientists, engineers, and IT professionals from around the world. Fermilab offers a diverse and energetic professional setting for a challenging career. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. 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 Scientific Computing Division strives to deliver innovative computing and engineering solutions that enable Fermilab to achieve its scientific mission. Within the division, the Frameworks, DAQ and Electronics (FDE) department is responsible for designing engineering hardware, firmware and software to advance technologies for Fermilab detectors, accelerators and Data Acquisition Systems.

Fermilab's Scientific Computing Division seeks a highly qualified candidate for an Electrical Staff Engineer to work on electronic engineering for Detector research and Quantum Information Science (QIS). The successful candidate will develop hardware, firmware and software in support of the main projects of the lab such in support of Neutrino physics, Cosmology and Quantum Information Science. QIS is a growing research activity for Fermilab and the Department of Energy.

We Are Looking For:
  • Master's degree in Electronic Engineering or relevant subject. A PhD degree in the field is preferred with 5+ years of experience.
  • A strong record in high speed mixed analog and digital hardware design. Experience in experimental physics will be considered a plus.
  • Strong skills in firmware development and tools for high end FPGAs.
  • Strong knowledge of Instrumentation for testing characterization and debugging of high speed analog and digital electronics, including FPGAs. Knowledge of Radio Frequency electronics will be considered a plus.
  • Knowledge of data analysis techniques.
  • Strong analytical, creative and independent problem-solving skills.
  • Willingness to work collaboratively on a diverse team
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Commitment to respect, understand, and value individual differences and support the diversity and inclusivity of Fermilab's workforce
  • Willingness to abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.

Physical Activity and Work Conditions:

Human Factors: Mental Concentration, Sitting, Standing, Demanding Work Schedule
  • Ability to work at a computer for extended periods of time.
  • Willingness to occasionally work beyond the normal workday and possibly weekends, during critical reporting periods.

Relocation is available for this position

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.
