We are ready to build this accelerator! Are you?

The beam-commissioning of this accelerator facility is scheduled for 2026. To help us achieve this goal, we are looking for a: Embedded system engineer for LLRF applications (Low-Level RF)
In this position, you will:

  • develop the MicroTCA-based LLRF system (176 & 352 MHz) together with colleagues and international collaboration partners
  • ensure to meet the exceptionally high reliability requirements of the accelerator
  • once applicable, commission the LLRF system & support the linac-operation
  • align the interface with the other technical groups (RF, controls, operation)

 

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • Master’s or PhD degree in electrical engineering, physics or equivalent
  • demonstrated experience in embedded systems engineering (Electronics, FPGA, Firmware)
  • practical experience in Object-oriented software design (Python, C/C++) and development lifecycle (Requirements, Quality assurance, Git)
  • knowledge of RF systems (Coupling, Modulations, Feedback loops, etc.) is an asset.
  • knowledge of Control Systems integration (SCADA, EPICS, Network protocols) is an asset
  • experience in initiating, managing and following-up purchasing contracts and related documents (Specifications, Test plans, Acceptance, etc.)
  • managing Self: working well autonomously; taking initiatives and foresee scheduling conflicts
  • flexible: be at ease switching between different unrelated topics, priorities and requirements
