We seek an experienced Electrical Engineer to join the Low-Level RF group in the EIC Directorate. The EIC facility will have approximately 50 Super Conducting RF and 20 Normal Conducting RF systems with challenges such as heavy beam loading, very high RF power and ultra-low-noise operation. The LLRF group is responsible for developing state-of-the-art FPGA-based RF control systems to accelerate, control and manipulate particle beams at the future EIC complex. The candidates for these positions will provide design, development and documentation support for other engineers and technicians on the LLRF team as well as work in close cooperation with other accelerator systems groups.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
• Collaborate in development of next generation FPGA-based RF control systems – from concept to design, testing and operation.
• Design and implement digital signal processing and control algorithms through system modeling, firmware/software development and testing to control cavities, amplifiers and associated electronics.
• Develop verification test plans and procedures to ensure the developed product meets the specified requirements.
• Install and trouble shoot RF system controllers and their supporting electronic systems.
• Provide upgrade, operation and maintenance support for legacy devices maintained and operated by LLRF Group at the RHIC facility.
