Text: Company Description 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 http://home.cern. Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. Job Description Are you an electrical technician looking for a challenging professional experience to further your career? If so, joining CERN’s TTE programme may very well give you that challenge. The Electrical Engineering Group of the Engineering Department has the mandate to design, procure and operate CERN’s electrical power distribution networks. The CERN electrical network, supplied by 130 kV and 400 kV lines respectively from Switzerland and France and provides electrical power to a number of high-energy particle accelerators, large scale experimental areas, the Organization's computer centre and many office buildings on various sites. The installed electrical power at the 18 kV level is rated at approximately 500 MVA. The Network Operation Section is responsible for the operation of CERN's electrical distribution network: high and low voltage installations (400 kV, 66 kV, 20 kV, 18 kV, 3.3 kV, 400 V, 48V). Functions After a period of familiarization, you will be responsible for the following operations associated with the procedures for the disconnection and isolation of high and low voltage equipment, and notably: Prepare and carry out interventions on the high and low voltage electrical network, such as network re-configurations, disconnection and isolation of equipment and making it safe, etc.; Implement corrective measures (in the event of breakdowns or when safety or warning devices are triggered) and compile intervention reports and records; Take delivery of new high-voltage and low-voltage systems; prepare and perform the associated commissioning tests; Operate as the responsible technician for the operations of one of the 10 areas of the CERN high and low-voltage electrical network; Take part in the verification and follow-up of the conformity of contractors' activities and carry out inspections during interventions (maintenance contracts); Issue certificates for work to be performed. Qualifications In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements: You are a national of a CERN Member State or Associate Member State (https://home.cern/about/member-states); You have an Electrical Technical Diploma or equivalent (careers.cern/ttediplomas), and no more than 4 years' relevant experience after finishing your diploma; If you are currently studying, you are still eligible to apply, although you are expected to have obtained your qualification by the start of your appointment at CERN; If you hold a BSc or MSc, you are not eligible. However you may be eligible for the Fellowship Programme. You should have at least a working knowledge of English or French. Specific skills required for this job: Commissioning, maintenance & operation of electrical distribution systems and of power systems (UPS) Maintenance and operation of safety systems Design of HV network & substations ; Knowledge of HV circuit breaker, HV transmission lines Design of LV network & switchboards; Knowledge of 400V circuit breaker & fuses, design of safety networks, 48V, 400V, 3.3kV. Knowledge of Diesel generators. Use of Scientific and Engineering software packages such as tools for supervision of electrical networks and for calculating/sizing electrical networks (power factory). Additional Information CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with: An employment contract of one year, renewable for a second year; On-the-job and formal training at CERN as well as in-house language courses for English and/or French; A take home pay of approximately 3,546 CHF per month (net of tax); Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive health scheme (for yourself, your spouse and children), and membership of the CERN Pension Fund; Depending on your individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva; 2,5 days of paid leave per month.
