Mechanical Engineer

The Turkish Accelerator and Radiation Laboratory is looking for mechanical engineers. Your main responsibilities will be the upgrade and maintenance of our He cooling line. In addition to this design, assembly and testing of photon/electron Beamline equipment for the first Turkish Accelerator will be also part of your workload. Accelerator technologies are at the cutting edge of engineering. Therefore, innovative solutions and the skill to combine given technologies with new solutions and the implementation in a scientific environment are necessary.

New graduated engineers are also welcome to send an application.
