    Electronics Technical Support Medipix project Job in Geneva, Switzerland

    At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

    Electronics Technical Support Medipix project Job Description

    Electronics Technical Support for Medipix project

    Are you interested in radiation detection and imaging and would you like to contribute to supporting the development of the next generation of hybrid pixel detectors for use at CERN and elsewhere? The Experimental Physics Department at CERN is looking for an enthusiastic electronics technical support collaborator with knowledge of PCB design and microelectronics testing and packaging to support an international Collaboration developing detectors for medical imaging and other fields.

    You will join the Electronic Systems for Experiments Group (ESE) of the Experimental Physics Department (EP) in the context of the Medipix project which involves a large community of users.


    After a period of extensive training you will be involved in organising logistical and technical support for the Collaboration members worldwide. This will include wafer testing, assembly testing, keeping detailed inventories and general technical support. Moreover various groups within CERN are using Medipix/Timepix devices in different projects and applications. You will be the first line technical contact for these people. 

    • Take responsibility in collaboration with design engineers, for the design, manufacture and assembly of laboratory-based test systems to characterize ASICs and ASIC-detector assemblies.
    • Participate in preparation and execution of validation and production tests of ASIC's and ASIC-detector assemblies both on the bench and at a dedicated probe station. Interpret results and propose and develop technical solutions where necessary.
    • Assist with the operation, maintenance and upgrading of dedicated laboratory instruments, probe station, test equipment and general laboratory facilities.
    • Maintain a database of components.
    • Design and procure probe cards and small PCBs for ASICs and ASIC assemblies.
    • Provide technical assistance and logistical support to users of the devices including the setting up and debugging of test systems in labs and in test beam areas.
    • Interface with specialized companies dealing with packaging of integrated circuits and their mounting on front-end modules.
