QUEST – Survey Engineer for FCC

Job Description

Your responsibilities

The Beams Department (BE), who plays a key role in providing the world class scientific instruments needed for the experiments running at CERN, is looking for a Survey Engineer researcher to join their Geodetic Metrology Group.

The person will be responsible for the development of a multiple distance in-fiber measurement system using Fourier based Frequency Sweeping Interferometry for the Future Circular Collider (FCC) Project. In the FCC Machine Detector Interface (MDI) area, machine components will require a precise alignment and a deformation monitoring at a micrometric scale, in a very limited space. In order to fulfill space constraints, a special system, based on Frequency Scanning Interferometry (FSI) is being developed at CERN.

in this role, you will:

  • participate in the development and qualification tests of the in-fibre FSI technology;
  • prepare operational functional prototypes;
  • study different ideas and concepts for the alignment of the arcs components.

Your profile

Skills and/or knowledge

  • Experience with design of high precision survey and micrometric alignment systems
  • Experience in applying high-precision survey methods and tools
  • Experience in Matlab/Python programming,
  • Analytical skills
  • Achieving results: delivering high quality work on time and fulfilling expectations.
  • Working in teams: building and maintaining constructive and effective work relationships;
  • Fluent in English, the ability to work in French would be an advantage.

  • You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State.
  • You have a professional background in Survey Engineer (or a related field) and have either:
    • Master’s degree with 2 to 6 years of post-graduation professional experience;
    • or a PhD with no more than 3 years of post-graduation professional experience.
