Job Description Position Title: Mechanical Engineer Location: Berkeley Lab - Berkeley, Ca. Hourly Rate: $65.00/Hr. Contract Details: 1-year contract w/ Possible perm employee conversion Benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, 401k, Sick Pay Position Summary The Mechanical Engineer will independently perform a variety of complicated mechanical engineering tasks, including design and development activities in support of specific scientific and engineering programs, taking responsibility for sub-projects and sub-groups within major projects or research programs at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). These activities may include conceptualization, design, planning, implementation, and completion of assigned problems, tasks, and projects, which have a high degree of complexity and range in scope. Moreover, the Mechanical Engineer may conduct, coordinate, and/or make significant contributions to large projects or multiple small projects utilizing independent judgment and decision making while working within schedule and budget constraints.

This position is to support the Advanced Light Source Upgrade (ALS-U) project. ALS-U includes a planned upgrade of the main electron particle accelerator complex of the Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab that will provide revolutionary x-ray capabilities with up to 1000 times brighter x-ray beams. The project is currently in a conceptual design phase. ALS-U will replace the existing storage ring with a new, high-performance storage ring and the addition of a low-emittance, full-energy accumulator ring in the existing storage-ring tunnel to enable on-axis, swap-out injection (an exchange of electron bunch trains between the accumulator ring and storage ring) using fast magnets. More information can be found at: -u/overview.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities: Essential Using extensive knowledge and experience of mechanical engineering concepts and tools, perform as a fully qualified and experienced professional engineer and resource.
Work on small projects, independently use professional engineering concepts to develop practical and creative solutions to complicated problems whose scope is typically in known technology with incorporation of new technology.
Take initiative to assist others in resolving issues outside immediate area of responsibility.
Participate in discussions of the engineering components of scientific/project initiatives, working with other groups and scientists in problem-solving and defining procedures and goals.
Independently prepare design specifications, analyses and recommendations for presentation and approval of senior technical personnel.
Plan, organize and conduct technical projects/programs involving the design, fabrication, modification, and evaluation of mechanical components. Formulate cost and schedule data associated with such components and prepare technical or progress reports.

Marginal Interface with vendors and in-house fabrication shop to prototype and test mechanical components relevant to the ALS-U project mission.
Write work instructions and procedures for the assembly and test of mechanical components and assemblies.

Position Requirements:

Education and Experience: Requires a BS degree, or equivalent, in engineering or a related field. Normally 2+ years of relevant experience.

Marginal Structural and thermal analysis of mechanical components using FEA Experience of designing ultra-high vacuum (UHV) systems.
Experience of materials and fabrication techniques used in fabrication of UHV chambers.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities / Essential Demonstrated extensive knowledge and experience in mechanical engineering concepts, theories, practices, and tools.
Demonstrated technical expertise sufficient to perform complicated and difficult engineering work.
Demonstrated ability to plan, organize, conduct and lead technical projects/programs and to formulate, track and report cost and schedule data.
Excellent oral and written communication skills.
Ability to work in a team environment and interact effectively with a broad range of colleagues.
