Position: Materials Laboratory Technician
Institution: European Organization for Nuclear Research
Location: Genève, Switzerland
Duties: As part of a group of specialists, you will mainly carry out materials destructive tests, namely: Perform microstructural characterizations and failure analyses of materials, welds, assemblies and components involving various materialographic preparation techniques and microscopic observations also based in specific cases on automatic image analysis; Select, carry out and in specific case set up or develop mechanical tests of materials and components, including fracture mechanics and fatigue tests and tests at cryogenic temperatures, according to standards in force or to customised procedures; Report results and conclusions of your tests and analyses in written form and in oral presentations. Provide a critical interpretation of the results; Follow up and advise on suitable techniques of material investigation, whether available in-house or in external laboratories; Support the continuous improvement of laboratory equipment; watch over developments in the fields of microstructural and mechanical characterization of materials; take part in the technical specification of new equipment
Requirements: Higher technical diploma in the field of Materials Testing or a related field; Experience: Extensive experience in metallographic techniques and microstructural examinations by optical, digital and Scanning Electron Microscopy of a wide variety of metallic and non-metallic materials; Extensive experience in mechanical (tensile, compression, flexural, fatigue, creep, hardness, fracture mechanics…), physical (magnetic permeability, transport properties…) testing of materials and failure analysis; Elemental analysis of materials including spectroscopic techniques; Programming for laboratory testing and in automatic image analysis; Writing carefully drafted test procedures, technical reports and technical specifications; Defining and applying safety procedures namely in handling chemicals and in carrying out cryogenic testing
