Job Details

As a Test and Measurements Engineer in the MTA Section, you will:

  • Develop and support the software framework for the analysis of LHC electrical circuit data. This framework, based on LabVIEW, provides the means to analyze the electrical integrity of the LHC electrical circuits which include superconducting magnets, current leads, power converters and quench protection equipment.

  • Develop data acquisition and equipment control applications based on users' specifications by using LabVIEW together with the section's rapid application development framework (RADE).

  • Contribute to integration and support of CERN's standard communication (FESA server and RDA3) and timing (GMT and White Rabbit) systems using LabVIEW real-time.

  • Contribute to the development and testing of equipment drivers in C/ C++ on Linux RT.

  • Be part of the support team that ensures optimal system operation at the accelerators at CERN.

  • Be a member of the CERN-wide LabVIEW support service which serves approximately 600 users.

  • Supervise one or several technical engineers and/or technician programmers.
