Automation Engineer

Imagine what we could learn if we could build a machine so powerful that it could look deep inside the very materials that the universe is made from.
A device that could actually let us see the atoms and molecules that make up the structure of substances.
Imagine the new discoveries we could make, the new materials we could develop and how much we could learn about ourselves and our universe.

The European Spallation Source is one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects being built today.
The project includes the most powerful linear proton accelerator ever built, a five-tonne, helium-cooled tungsten target wheel, 15 state-of-the-art neutron instruments, a suite of laboratories, and a supercomputing data management and software development centre.
In the context of its history and future as a scientific organisation, however, it is more than the sum of its parts.
It is a brand-new Big Science organisation and we are building it from the ground up.

Come and build the future of Science with us!
