Diamond Light Source is a world class science facility providing X-ray beams of exceptional brightness for use by scientists to probe the atomic building blocks of physical and biological matter. The Engineering Group plays a key role in the design and construction of the electron accelerators and beamlines that transport the light from the electron accelerator to the scientific sample. The accelerators comprise normal and super-conducting magnets and Radio Frequency cavities to energise the electron beam. The beamlines are made up of optical elements and sample environments that employ sub-micron, multi-axis, precision motion systems operating in Ultra High Vacuum environments and often at cryogenic temperatures.

We are seeking recent graduates, or those who are expected to graduate this year, with an Electrical Engineering related degree who can join us as Electrical Designers to work on the detailed design of solutions to meet the scientific challenges we face. 

Working with teams of scientists, engineers and technicians, you’ll provide design solutions for Diamond’s (Beamline) Control and Instrumentation Systems.  These systems include precision motion controls, detector and diagnostic instrumentation, vacuum controls, automated sample manipulation and robotics, safety interlock systems, data networks, timing and triggering systems.  Your designs will utilise a variety of technologies including PLCs, distributed IO systems, electronic signal processing, and specialised cabling and rack systems. 

You should have the ability to communicate effectively, show initiative and have lots of enthusiasm.

We work in a friendly, collaborative environment with opportunities for training and career development. We also offer flexible working hours.
