The Advanced Light Source (ALS, https://als.lbl.gov/) is a Department of Energy (DOE, https://www.energy.gov/) national scientific user facility that provides thousands of scientists from around the world access to bright beams of x-rays, infrared, and extreme ultraviolet light for scientific studies and technology development in disciplines spanning physical, chemical, materials, biological, energy, and Earth sciences. ALS-U is an upgrade project for the ALS that received approval of its cost, schedule, and performance baseline in April 2021.
What You Will Do:
• Orchestrate the conclusion of remaining final design activities and execution of the Accelerator Systems Mechanical Systems scope to enhance the effective and efficient delivery of the ALS-U project. To accomplish this, the position requires close partnerships with the ALS, Engineering, ATAP, and the Berkeley Lab Operations Divisions.
• Lead the ALS-U Accelerator Mechanical Systems under the direction of the Deputy Accelerator Systems Manager, to include:
◦ Supporting technical integration of mechanical sub-systems with all Accelerator Systems scope.
◦ Coordinating the Accelerator Mechanical Systems presentations at meetings of appropriate committees.
• Manage requirements, interfaces and risks for Mechanical Systems.
What is Required:
• Advanced degree in Mechanical Engineering or related field and 15 or more years of experience (or equivalent level of demonstrated knowledge).
• Experience with design, procurement/fabrication, assembly, installation and maintenance of high-technology systems (of complexity similar to accelerators).
• Advanced problem-solving and decision-making skills necessary to independently solve problems and make appropriate and timely decisions.
• PhD in Engineering or Physics.
• Experience with particle accelerator or beamline related science or engineering.
• Experience on projects governed by DOE Order 413.3b or other projects employing similar project management rigor (e.g. earned value management systems).
• This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
• This position is eligible for a hybrid work schedule - a combination of teleworking and performing work on site at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA. Work schedules are dependent on business needs. Individuals working a hybrid schedule must reside within 150 miles of Berkeley Lab.
