You will work under close supervision within the ALS-U engineering group and participate in the engineering effort to upgrade the Advanced Light Source (ALS)
The ALS is a dynamic national scientific user facility that provides thousands of scientists from around the world access to bright beams of x-rays, infrared, and extreme ultraviolet light for scientific studies and technology development in disciplines spanning physical, chemical, materials, biological, energy, and Earth sciences. The ALS is a global leader in soft x-ray science for more than two decades. The ALS-U project is a new project at LBNL that will ensure the facility's leadership in this field for the next decades.
It's an exciting time to participate in the project! You will be able to participate in the engineering design process and can take part in a large scale engineering project. As a student assistant, your time commitment is flexible 8-20 hours during the university year and up to full time during the summer. We are looking for students now that would work part-time until the end of the semester and then stay on as summer students. After the summer internship, there is an opportunity to continue on a part-time basis.
What You Will Do:
Assist with the development of work instruction and quality assurance documents and databases.
Assist with project work related to the Advanced Light Source Upgrade project.
May assist with the development of engineering documentation and work process development.
Contribute to 3D modeling and design work.
May assist in assembling and document as-built documentation.
Contribute to 3D modeling and design effort.
Work with mechanical design models to extract images to illustrate work instructions.
Assist with the development of work instruction and quality assurance documents.
Assist with development of project documentation.
What is Required:
Full-time student during semester enrolled in an engineering program or similar technical program.
Familiarity with mechanical CAD modeling Creo Parametric or Solidworks.
Basic understanding of engineering principles.
Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite and Google Doc platform.
Ability to make clear presentations and write reports.
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Understanding of databases and database development.
Basic understanding of Quality Insurance principles.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a part-time, 1 year, student assistant appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
Part-time, enter specific days and hours, non-exempt (hourly paid) from overtime.
Salary will be predetermined based on student step rates.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
