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 https:// home.cern.Job Description
Are you a skilled electromechanical technician with experience in assembly, commissioning and operation of mechatronic systems or the maintenance and operation of complex test benches, looking to stretch yourself and take on a new challenge? Join CERN's Magnets, Superconductors and Cryostats Group and contribute to the magnet test team in the operation of their world-class test and measurement laboratories, for the qualification of the next generation of superconducting magnets, guiding particle beams in a variety of new accelerator projects.
