Would you like to oversee a mechanical engineering system through its entire life-cycle, from design through operation? Would you like an engineering job where no two days are alike? Are you looking for a job where you work daily with strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators? Are you seeking a job where your work advances knowledge for the benefit of humankind?
Come join one of the crown jewels of the United States’ research and innovation ecosystems: Fermilab is America’s premier national 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 1,800 employees, made up of engineers, scientists, technicians, designers/drafters and administrative professionals. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 50 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.
Come join a diverse team of talented and dedicated mechanical engineers, CAD designers, and technicians who make up the Accelerator Division’s Mechanical Support Department. We are seeking an entry-level Mechanical Fluids Engineer who is a collaborator by nature and who seeks out the latest technology and tools to design, fabricate, test, install and operate components and systems to support our particle accelerators. We use the latest technology such as ANSYS, NASTRAN, AutoCAD, NX and additive manufacturing (3D printing) to model, simulate, prototype, and test our designs. We work with vendors who stretch their technical abilities to fabricate the next generation of components and systems. We expand our engineering skills, and sometimes write the textbooks, in order to operate the existing accelerators. We work with collaborators throughout the lab and at institutions around the world to plan future accelerators for multi-billion dollar projects such as the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF/DUNE).
