Diamond Light Source is a world class science institute providing X-Ray beams of exceptional brightness for use by scientists to probe the atomic building blocks of physical and biological matter.

The Engineering Group plays a key role in the design and construction of the electron accelerators and the beamlines that transport the light from the electron accelerator to the scientific sample. The accelerators comprise normal and super-conducting magnets and Radio Frequency cavities to energise the electron beam. The beamlines are made up of optical elements and sample environments that employ sub-micron, multi-axis, precision motion systems operating in Ultra High Vacuum environments and often at cryogenic temperatures.

We are seeking a highly motivated Mechanical Design Engineer or Designer to join the group to work on the detailed design of solutions to meet the scientific challenges we face, and enjoy interaction with leading scientists, supplier companies and technical teams building the equipment.

With an honours degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline and suitable experience, your excellent technical skills will be complemented by your teamwork and ability to communicate effectively at all levels.

If you are a talented early career graduate with not as much directly relevant knowledge and experience you are invited to apply for the Mechanical Designer positions. The emphasis is on having an excellent grasp of engineering principles and an interest in systems!

To deliver world class science for the UK we need engineering solutions to match so if you feel you have the imagination to think outside the box taking a view of the whole system, coupled with expertise in the areas mentioned above, this vacancy will be of interest to you.
