Job Description

Open: May 19, 2020

Close: June 19, 2020

Fermilab 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 as well as other locations around the world including; deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and additionally the South Pole.

The Frameworks, DAQ and Electronics (FDE) department within the Scientific Computing Division of Fermilab seeks a Computer/Electrical Engineer to contribute to the department's development and deployment of data acquisition (DAQ) and control systems for particle physics experiments. The FDE department contributes to small and large scale collaborations - designing, implementing, and debugging hardware, firmware, and software solutions. The successful applicant will work closely with other FDE department members and contribute with an emphasis on firmware development on such experiments as Mu2e, CMS, and DUNE. The department also has ongoing research and development efforts in the direction of web-based graphical user interfaces and "internet-of-things" control systems. Depending on the applicant's specific interests, in addition to developing FPGA firmware with opportunities in machine learning and artificial intelligence, the selected applicant may be called upon to perform calculations, design/test/debug electronic hardware, or write software.
