The Machine Directorate at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden, invites applications for a Technician/Test Engineer.

Description of directorate/division

The accelerator division is designing, constructing, commissioning and operating the 5 MW linear accelerator and associated systems for the ESS facility. In collaboration with numerous partner institutes, the Beam Diagnostics Section is tasked with the design, production, and deployment of proton beam instrumentation systems. These systems monitor the properties of the beam from the ion source through the warm and the superconducting linac, and finally through the transport lines and onto the target. They incorporate a wide range of detector, electronic, and software technologies, both custom and commercial-off-the-shelf, deployed in the challenging environment of a high power accelerator and target station.
