Are you a highly motivated Mechanical Engineer eager to take on exciting challenges?
We invite you to become a key member of our team, where you will play a crucial role in archiving our teams mission by overseeing the system engineering of our cutting-edge production target and other beam-intercepting devices.
This position is dedicated to the advancement of the International Muon Collider Collaboration (IMCC), one of CERN’s flagship projects.
We are committed to the ongoing feasibility studies for this exciting endeavour. For example, developing High Power (MW-class) production targets, conceptualizing target systems, designing beam windows, beam dumps and other absorbers, and engineering shielding solutions at the collider’s interaction regions.
In this position, you will focus on systems engineering and conducting Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on various International Muon Collider Collaboration (IMCC) components, identifying operational limitations, execute radiation damage studies, dimensioning components and auxiliary services for both final facility and demonstrator.
Together with our international partners, you will work on liquid metal target technologies and possibly support the design of a small-scale liquid lead experiment at CERN’s High Radiation to Materials (HiRadMat) facility.
Specifically, you will:

What we offer
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.
