Apply for this job
Location Toulouse, Midi-Pyrénées Salary compétitif
Sector Engineering Type Permanent

We are looking for our client, an international engineering consultancy and equipment development company in the field of satellite communications a Cryogenic/Thermal Engineer for a permanent contract with experience in working with radio-frequency applications.

The successful applicant will join engineering team and will report directly to the Cryogenics Business Unit Manager for the responsibilities listed below.

Responsibilities:

Participation in the design, development and production of cryogenic radio-frequency receiver systems involving:

  • Preliminary and detailed thermal design, selection of cryocoolers, definition of thermal insulation, computation of thermal loads and temperature by means of thermal simulations
  • Preliminary and detailed vacuum design: selection of materials, definition of surface treatment, definition of outgassing methods and procedures, computation and measurements of outgassing rates, computation of vacuum conductance and pumping speed, design of vacuum sub-systems.
  • Preliminary mechanical design and support to detailed design: cryogenic integration, aspects related to thermal and vacuum designs. This work will be done in conjunction with a CAD technician.
  • The candidate does not need experience in CAD software; however it would be an asset
  • Integration and test of cryogenics receivers: Mechanical, thermal and vacuum integration, definition of test and validation plans and procedures, execution of tests, production of test reports.

Leading the design, development and production of cryogenic test systems involving:

  • Preliminary and detailed thermal design (as described above) but also including definition and design of liquid nitrogen systems (tank definition, valves, gauges, piping and connectors selections).
  • Integration and test of cryogenic Test Systems.

Supporting the execution of services related to cryogenics and vacuum systems.

  • Supervision of technicians.
  • Undertaking feasibility analysis of customers' requirements
  • Providing expertise on diagnosis, maintenance and repair.

Project management activities associated with the above.

The ideal candidate will have at least a relevant professional work experience in cryogenics . But also:

  • Thermal engineer profile with low temperatures (cryogenics) specialty
  • Strong understanding of cryogenic coolers (cryocoolers) types GM and Stirling
  • Experience in design and testing of "dry" cryogenic systems (without cryogenic liquids)
  • Experience in design and testing of liquid nitrogen systems
  • Strong understanding of vacuum application to cryogenic thermal insulations
  • Experience in thermal simulation software for cryogenics, for instance ThermXL Communications simulation tools (e.g. Matlab/Simulink)

Additional Requirements:

  • Experience in Project Management
  • The candidate shall have radiofrequency engineering basic skills and/or demonstrate a true capacity to develop competences in radiofrequency engineering.

Academics: Al least 5-year degree in engineering or physics with focus on thermodynamics, low temperatures/cryogenics and electromagnetic radiation . Newly qualified PHD welcome.
