Berkeley Lab’s ( LBNL ) Engineering Division has exciting openings for Electronics Engineers (Multiple Openings) to join our team. The Accelerator Technologies Group ( ATG ) provides engineering solutions to a wide range of scientific applications mainly in the form of accelerator electronics. The scientific programs supported include the Advanced Light Source ( ALS ), ALS-U and GRETA at LBNL , LCLS and LCLS-II at SLAC , PIP-II at Fermilab , Fermi@Elettra, SNS at ORNL , etc. The matrix structure of the LBNL Engineering Department provides the opportunity to work independently and in teams and to experience a wide range of technical challenges in many scientific disciplines. As a member of ATG, you will perform a variety of interesting and challenging engineering tasks related to state-of-the-art electronic instrumentation and data acquisition systems for particle accelerators and other scientific applications. The work can cover all phases of a system's lifetime: conceptualization, design, planning, implementation, and commissioning. Assignments will be chosen to maximize the team's effectiveness in developing FPGA-based Digital Signal Processing systems (similar to software-defined radio) for real-time control applications, including simulation and software support. This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs; and skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.
Typically requires a minimum of 5 years of related experience with a Bachelor’s degree; or 3 years and a Master’s degree or equivalent work experience. Demonstrated knowledge and abilities to fully understand the area of electronic instrumentation and data acquisition systems and to resolve issues in creative ways. RTL design using Verilog or VHDL. Theoretical understanding and practical experience with modern communication and Digital Signal Processing techniques. Hands-on experience with hardware: testing, verification and debugging using lab equipment. Experience in software-defined radio and/or real-time control applications. HDL simulation, timing closure analysis, and resource optimization. Strong programming skills in one of the following: C/C++, Python, Matlab/Octave. Excellent oral and written communication skills.
