Working at the heart of the matter  Electronics is at the heart of our activities : playing a mission critical role in our particle accelerators (power conversion, magnet controls and protection, radio frequency, beam analysis and control, real-time controls), high energy physics experiments (detector instrumentation, data acquisition and filtering, trigger, data storage), power generation and distribution or access and safety infrastructures. From the system conception and specifications, to the design, simulation, prototyping and testing, to, finally, the mass production, installation and full system commissioning: The challenges are numerous. But surely you're up to it - together with us. Take part!


If you're ready to stretch your imagination and skills, and you're passionate about one or more of the following:

  • Analogue electronics (circuit design, front-end instrumentation and control, DC to wide band signal amplification, power conversion and management, signal to noise optimization filtering, analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversions, radiation-hardness)
  • Digital electronics (digital signal processing, data filtering and synchronization, link technologies, timing and data alignment, slow and real-time process controls, data collection and storage, radiation-hardness)
  • High frequency techniques (RF amplifiers, klystrons, acceleration cavities and linear structures, analogue and digital controls for RF units)
  • Micro-electronics (analogue and digital chip design, packaging, radiation-hardness)
  • Electronics production techniques (circuit layout, PCB manufacturing)
  • Power electronics o Control systems (embedded systems, PLC, regulation, SCADA)
  • Data acquisition systems (data acquisition, links and adapters, logging systems)

then don't miss our recurring opportunities in these domains. find out more in our video. You may also want to consider our opportunities to work as an operator (beam operator, technical infrastructure operator, cryogenics operator).
