Close: December 27,2019

We Are:

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 and South Dakota and at locations around the world, including Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole.

We are strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park.

Fermilab's Technical Division is seeking a Mechanical Technician ( 2-year term) to join the Magnet Systems Department. The selected candidate will be involved primarily with the fabrication, assembly and repair of conventional and superconducting magnets and related components. Duties also include occasional mechanical support within accelerator tunnels.

You Will
  • Use hand and power tools to assemble/disassemble and repair accelerator and detector magnets and subassemblies, following written or oral instructions.
  • Read engineering drawings, take measurements during magnet production, and document information in electronic travelers using Windows PCs.
  • Handle fragile components. Solder and braze components, in both fine work and bulk work situations.
  • Grind and cut parts used for magnet fabrication.
  • Set up and operate machines to insulate conductors and wind magnet coils.
  • Prepare and operate high temperature ovens.
  • Prepare and perform vacuum/pressure epoxy (and other resins) impregnation of coils.
  • Operate electromechanical equipment and hydraulic lamination, collaring and welding presses.
  • Handle and transfer cryogenic liquids and gases.
  • Generate, or assist in generating, Hazard Analyses for work requiring such.
  • Enter relevant work information into a database. Prepare and compile technical data and safety records for equipment in area of assignment.
  • Conduct periodic safety inspections of area of assignment.
  • Perform preventative and standard maintenance of equipment, troubleshooting of problems, and repair as needed. Respond to operational and emergency requirements of the area.
  • Assist with the identification, packaging, control and disposal of chemical and radioactive waste.
