Lead the design and installation planning for the AC distribution, cabling distribution and routing planning, and rack procurement for various functional systems.
Provide documentation including drawings, schematics, parts lists, specifications, and interface documents.
Contribute to the design, installation, and implementation of cabling plans for programmatic and experimental systems at LBNL, ensuring NEC compliance.
Contribute in the management of cost and schedule for assigned Projects. Specifically, provide cost estimates, manage procurements, and lead installation efforts, system integration and testing for all installation/upgrade projects.
Work for other projects at LBNL of diverse scope under limited direction, independently determining and developing approach to solutions as required.
May direct activities of other personnel to complete required tasks.
What is Required:
B.S. in Electrical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, or related field or equivalent experience. Typically requires a minimum of 5+ years of relevant experience.
Experience with design/implementation in experimental electronics systems. Detailed design and documentation experience with NEC code compliance, rack layouts, and cabling plans
Demonstrated strong background and skill base in electrical engineering, including ability to exercise sound engineering judgment and analysis, and strong written and verbal technical communication skills.
Experience in managing projects of various scales, including leading and supervising others effectively in a team environment.
Organizational skills with the ability to handle multiple competing priorities and projects.
Experience with CAD software, such as AutoCAD
M.S. or equivalent experience.
Familiarity with project management which may include personnel assignment/supervision and cost/schedule management.
3D CAD experience (preferably Creo Parametric).
A PE license from the National Society of Professional Engineers is beneficial but not required.
This is a full time, 2 year term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs.
This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs and the skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.

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.
