Text: Industrial Automation Technician (BE-ICS-CE-2021-115-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 Would you like to design, develop, commission and troubleshoot industrial control systems for one of the world’s most complex technical instruments? We use an original approach based on industrial standards and the latest technologies. Be a part of something bigger; CERN, take part. We are looking for a technician with a versatile set of automation skills applied to industrial control systems. You should feel comfortable in the design and development of turn-key PLC-based control systems as well as troubleshooting and supporting CERN-wide PLC users. The ability to understand the behaviour of complex systems and to quickly acquire and apply necessary knowledge to intervene, are key skills for this job. You will join: The Beams Department (BE) in charge of the exploitation of the largest accelerator complex and its technical infrastructure. The Control Engineering Section within The Industrial Control Systems Group (ICS) , whose activities include the engineering and support of control systems and automation technologies for the LHC and the high-energy physics experiments. You will benefit from: The opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience into new areas and discover a domain where excellence is the key driving factor. Specific training and support for professional development to foster your skills and develop your talents.
