Senior Mechanical Research Engineer (Research Support Specialist III)
Apply Here Who are we? The Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based ScienceS and Education (CLASSE) studies particle beams and accelerators, photon science, particle physics and the early universe, and serves students, the public and scientists from Cornell and around the world. The research missions of this laboratory are in many respects unique in the world. We have an immediate opening for one or more Senior Mechanical Research Engineers. What you will do: The primary duties of the Senior Mechanical Research Engineer position are to independently guide the mechanical development of sophisticated scientific instruments and components. This includes:
- Collaborating with a variety of internal stakeholders (research scientists and technical staff), and external vendors and companies to engineer, create and implement equipment and solutions to help enable and advance research.
- Design analysis: perform sophisticated calculations regarding static loads, synchrotron radiation power levels, heat transfer and cooling requirements, etc. Use stress and thermal monitoring software (e.g., ANSYS) to validate design choices.
- Guiding the fabrication (internally or with vendors) of equipment, visiting vendors as needed.
- Participating directly in equipment installation and commissioning.
- Presenting designs at internal reviews and meetings. Assist in preparation of research papers, reports and articles for publication.
- Providing scoping and budget estimates for proposed projects and grant renewals. Mentoring students and junior engineers with regard to engineering projects.

Summer Engineering and Research for Community College Students (SERCCS) at Cornell We are inviting community college students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents to apply for our Summer Engineering and Research for Community College Students (SERCCS) program. Through this program, students interested in a career in science, engineering, and technology have the opportunity to participate in research and development projects at the Center for High-Energy X-ray Sciences (CHEXS) at Cornell. CHEXS is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and operates experimental capabilities optimized for the characterization of materials and biological systems with high intensity and high energy X-rays provided by the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS). During the ten-week SERCCS program (June 5 - August 11, 2023), participants will work closely with a mentor on a project related to ongoing research and development at CHEXS. These projects include the development of new experimental capabilities, testing and commissioning of scientific instruments, data analysis and interpretation etc. In addition to participating in research and development, the SERCCS program includes seminars, lectures and social events as well as a symposium at the end of the program when participants present results of their research to all program participants and mentors. Local group housing will be provided through Cornell University Campus life. Participants will receive a stipend of $6,000 for the duration of the program. Your application should include: 1. A personal statement describing your experience, skills, interests and goals, and what aspect of the research is of special interest to you. 2. An official electronic transcript from your community college. 3. Two letters of recommendation, at least one from a professor at your college. For further information about the program, please contact Kate Shanks (email@example.com). Additional information, including descriptions of student research projects, can be found on the SERCCS website. Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
