Are you interested to work in an exciting scientific environment? Perhaps summer work at MAX IV would be something for you?

Your team
The ICT Electronics team works with electronics interfacing the control system and the facility is dependent on them to be able to run. The electronics ranges from motors and motion systems, timing and triggering, current and voltage readout as well as synchronization between them all. The team both develops and buys commercial systems and when they are in operation, we make sure that they are able to acquire the signals needed for the experiments to be successful. 

Your main work tasks will be

  • Updating a diagnose tool using python and Qt. The goal is to increase the capability of the diagnostic tool for our stepper motion system by introduce time to frequency conversion of sampled data together with other predefined needed data such as full with half maximum of position noise and drift. With this capability, longer stability measurements are possible to be automated. The diagnose tool is used to tune and characterize motors in the facility. We are running about 1700 motors continuously and are dependent on this tool for everyday work. 

To be successful in this role you need to have the following qualifications

  • An interest for electronics and programming of electronics.
  • At least one year of studies at a university level, preferably on an electronics or software program, or similar.
  • Dependent on your background, more focus could be put on one task than the other. 

As a person you are curious and not afraid of asking a question if something is unclear. You will be facing a complex environment and new friends and hence hopefully loves a challenge.

You must be minimum 18 years and fluent in English to apply to this position.
