Text: Fibre Optics Engineer (EN-EL-FC-2021-55-LD) Geneva, Switzerland Contract 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. Job Description Introduction The Engineering Department (EN) pushes back the limits of technology so that physicists can carry out their research. Within the Electrical Engineering Group (EL) of the EN department, you will join the Fibre Optics and Cabling Section (FC), which is in charge of CERN's optical fibre infrastructure. The section ensures the technical expertise in the field of fibre optics, and provides optical and copper signal cables, standardised racks and DC power cables for magnets in the accelerators and experimental areas. In addition, the Section provides engineering support to the CERN users, centralises their cabling requests and organises the installation activities through external industrial-support contractors. Are you an expert in the domain of fibre optics technology, who is ready to take on challenging installation projects whilst bringing innovation to the development of technologies? Are you willing to contribute to the continuous extension, consolidation, and maintenance of CERN’s optical fibre network constituting the infrastructure for the major communication systems of the various accelerators, including CERN’s current leading project: the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC). Take part!
