Job Description

Mechanical Engineer-Argonne National Labs

Position Description

The Advanced Photon Source (APS) is one of the most technologically complex machines in the world. This premier national research facility provides ultra-bright, high-energy, storage ring-generated x-ray beams to more than 5,000 scientists from around the United States and the world. These scientists come to the APS from universities, industry, medical schools, and other research institutions to conduct research in almost all scientific disciplines. They access the x-ray beams to do their research by utilizing beamlines and experimental end stations managed by staff beamline scientists within the APS X-ray Science Division (XSD).


Mechanical Engineer-Argonne National Labs


The Beamline Instrumentation Group works with APS beamline scientists to provide reliable technical support to the beamlines and experimental end stations that enable world class research. We are currently seeking a self-starting, curious and motivated Mechanical Engineer to join our team of five engineers for a career opportunity.

In this role you will:

Provide engineering analysis, design, fabrication and installation of mechanical systems for the APS beamlines and experimental end stations including components for high-precision manipulation systems, thermal management and vacuum systems.
Work with beamline scientists and other engineers to translate their requirements into conceptual and final designs.
Perform preliminary and final design and supervise the fabrication, assembly, testing, and commissioning of mechanical systems.
Manage medium-sized projects ($100k-$350k project value) from concept through installation.
Perform analysis using commercial FEA packages and develops custom design applications when required.
Interact with vendors to optimize technical designs and to obtain optimum cost/performance ratio.
Create 2D and 3D design drawings and expedite part fabrications through Argonne and offsite machine shops.
Provide technical direction and supervision to the designers and technicians assigned to specific projects.
Publish results in internal reports, journals, and conference proceedings and makes presentations at meetings, conferences, and seminars.
