About Us

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron science facility. By accelerating electrons to near light-speed, Diamond generates brilliant beams of light from infra-red to X-rays which are used for academic and industry research and development across a range of scientific disciplines including structural biology, physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, earth, and environmental sciences. 

At Diamond we are currently planning a major multi-million pound upgrade of the facility, known as Diamond-II. Diamond-II will combine a new machine and new beamlines with a comprehensive series of upgrades to optics, detectors, sample environments, sample delivery capabilities and computing, which will ultimately generate an even more brilliant light source at a higher energy. 

About the Role

We now have an opportunity for a Magnet Engineer/Physicist or Senior Magnet Engineer/Physicist to design, procure and test the many different types of high quality accelerator magnets that will be needed for the Diamond-II project. 

The key duties of the role will include:

  • Carrying out 2D and 3D magnetic designs of high-quality accelerator magnets, covering the full range of d.c., a.c. and pulsed magnets, both permanent magnet and electromagnet, using sophisticated commercially available software.
  • Creating detailed magnetic/mechanical/electrical procurement specifications.
  • Supervising procurement contracts for the supply of magnets.
  • Set-up, operate and maintain high precision magnetic measurement systems.
  • Undertake magnetic measurement of accelerator magnets and analysis of data to assess field quality.
  • Keeping abreast of worldwide developments in magnet technology.
  • The major focus of this role is pulsed magnets i.e. kickers and septa. 

About You

If you have experience in the field of magnet design, construction, and testing, preferably of accelerator magnets, then we want to hear from you. 

You will have experience of design, production and testing of high-quality accelerator magnets, as well as supervision of procurement contracts.
