ISIS is the world’s leading pulsed neutron and muon source for research in the physical and life sciences. Situated at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, the accelerator based facility provides research into physics, chemistry, materials science, geology, engineering and biology and is the most productive research centre of its type in the world. The ISIS Facility is manned 24/7 by dedicated technicians and engineers who are responsible for the safe operation of the £multimillion particle accelerator and two target station complexes. To facilitate this shift crew teams currently work three eight hour shifts during weekdays and two twelve hour shifts at weekends throughout the year.
We have a vacancy for a Duty Technician to provide technical support for the shift crew by assisting with the safe operation of the accelerator and target station complexes. You will play a leading role in performing essential engineering and general duties including first line fault diagnosis and repair/replacement of equipment. This entails responding to equipment failure by investigating the initial fault with an expectation to resolve problems in the shortest possible time but with the highest regard for personnel and equipment safety.
You will be expected to perform routine tasks both in the MCR (Main Control Room) and elsewhere including accurate recording of plant and peripheral equipment parameters and are required to become a member of the RAL site Alarm Investigation Team.
