The Accelerator and Source Division (ASD) operates an accelerator complex with a 6 GeV electron storage ring, which is the source of the X-rays that are exploited on the experimental stations. In 2020, the ESRF has commissioned a new ultra-low emittance ring that constitutes the world’s first Extremely Brilliant Source (EBS) of hard X-rays. As part of the ASD, the Radio Frequency (RF) group is responsible for the 200 MeV Pre-Injector Linac, the 352 MHz accelerating RF cavities of the booster and the storage ring with their high power RF transmitters, as well as the pulsed magnets and power supplies of the beam injection/extraction systems. The RF group comprises five units with a total of 16 collaborators.
As an engineer in the RF group, within the RF power amplifiers unit, your main tasks will be to :
In addition, as a member of the Accelerator and Source division, you will be required to contribute 15% of your time to the operation of the accelerator complex as part of the shift work for the user service and take part in the RF standby duty.
Permanent position. Participation in shift work according to the ESRF regulations.
The salary will be calculated on the basis of relevant qualifications and professional experience.
