95866 Requisition #

Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s (LBNL) Engineering Division has an opening for a Student Assistant to join the team. The position provides part-time employment (8-16 hours/week) during the semester. 

 

The student will work under close supervision within the ALS-U engineering group and participate in the engineering effort to upgrade the Advanced Light Source. The student’s work focus will vary depending on their skills and interests. Students that are interested more in creating technical documents and are interested in QA and manufacturing process development will be directed towards this kind of work. Students that are more interested in CAD and design work will work on projects geared towards design, large assemblies, and manufacturing drawings. The student will have ample opportunities to get trained in the specific engineering tools used at LBNL and that will be necessary to your work. 

 

The ALS is a dynamic national scientific user facility that provides thousands of scientists from around the world access to bright beams of x-rays, infrared, and extreme ultraviolet light for scientific studies and technology development in disciplines spanning physical, chemical, materials, biological, energy, and Earth sciences. ALS has been a global leader in soft x-ray science for more than two decades. The ALS-U project is an ongoing project at LBNL that will ensure the facility’s leadership in this field for the next decades. It's an exciting time to join our growing team!
