Our client 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 at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and 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.
The lab’s ESH Division is seeking one Electronic Technician I. Under general supervision, the selected candidates will provide moderately complex electromechanical support for an area of assignment, typically an experiment or support group. Depending on the area of assignment, the selected candidate will fabricate, set-up, calibrate, operate, test, repair and modify a variety of moderately complex mechanical-electrical equipment, systems and devices. Position entails maintaining, installation, assembly & testing of Radiation Safety Interlock Systems (RSIS), Laser Safety Systems & Oxygen Deficiency Hazard (ODH) Monitoring Systems. These personnel safety systems are used throughout the Fermilab Site. Experience / solid understanding of electronic assembly using hand tools is required.
