Are you a technician looking for a challenging professional experience to further your career? If so, joining CERN’s TTE programme may very well give you that challenge. This position as a Mechanical Technician is part of our prestigious TTE programme.

The EN-STI-TCD section is in charge of the conceptual design, construction, operation and maintenance of special components having direct interaction with high-energy particle beams, so called “beam-intercepting devices”. Such devices are installed across the CERN’s accelerator complex, including particle-producing targets, beam absorbers/dumps, collimators, beam stoppers and slits.


  • You will support the various technical activities associated with the Beam Intercepting Devices managed by the EN-STI-TCD section, among which conceptual design, assembly, installation and maintenance of targets, collimators and dumps.
  • You will support the LHC Injection dump design and assembly as well as the spare qualification, participate in the prototyping phase and follow-up on the procurement of various components.
  • You will also ensure the appropriate link with the equipment control group (electronic control) as well as with the survey team for precise alignment of the devices.
  • You will also be involved in the routine maintenance as well as in the redesign and consolidation activities in the accelerator complex.
