The FRIB* controls system will be based on EPICS, using CS-Studio, DISCS applications, and OpenXAL. In anticipation of approval to start construction in 2014, a number of positions in the controls department are currently open, or will
become open shortly. These positions include
EPICS control system engineers, circuit design and FPGA developers, and high-level applications developers.
This is an exciting time to be part of a growing team supporting a leading US nuclear science facility.
Full-time, contract, and sabbatical arrangements will be considered. If you would like further information, feel free to contact me directly, or speak to the FRIB staff at the upcoming EPICS Collaboration
*The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC), Michigan State University
(MSU), and the State of Michigan. Located on campus and operated by MSU, FRIB will provide intense beams of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth). FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of these
rare isotopes in order to better understand the physics of nuclei, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society.
