Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL) Engineering Division has an opening for a Technical Drawing Checker to join our team.
In this exciting role, you will join the Engineering Division to work within the Advanced Light Source Upgrade (ALS-U) Project to support the development of the design, fabrication, and procurement. You will interface with the CAD engineering Team, provide the supporting analysis (including tolerance stack-up), review and provide corrections to models and drawings, and assist with specification documents. You will also work together with mechanical designers to provide the proper dimensioning schemes for drawings and related fabrication documents.
You will be providing technical support by applying engineering concepts, reviewing technical documentation for correctness with regard to dimensioning and tolerancing per ASME Y14.5, manufacturability, ease of assembly, and meeting LBNL policies and procedures. You will be one of the Subject Matter Experts for all of Engineering to consult for manufacturability, dimensioning, mechanical and electrical technical drawing practices.
The Advanced Light Source (ALS) has been a global leader in soft x-ray science for more than two decades, and the upgrade project (ALS-U) currently underway will endow the facility with state-of-the-art x-ray capabilities and ensure future leadership. You will join the Engineering Division and the project team that delivers new and upgraded experimental facilities for ALS.
What You Will Do:
Review Electrical and Mechanical Technical Drawings for compliance with ASME Y14.5 and Drawing Requirements Manual.
Provide corrections to Electrical and Mechanical Technical Drawings.
Provide support for communication of manufacturability within the technical drawings.
Provide Subject Matter Expert consultation, for technical drawings and manufacturability, to projects and programs at LBNL.
Generate new and maintain existing policies, guidelines, best practices, and instructional media covering the technical drawing domain for engineering.
Manage the ASME Y14.5 certification program for the engineering department.
Manage Commercial off-the-shelf Libraries of CAD objects within the various Product Lifecycle Management systems present at LBNL.
Additional Responsibilities as needed:
Provide as-needed training for ASME Y14.5 to staff.
May direct the activities of other individuals.
What is Required:
Knowledge equivalent to a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Technology or Engineering or a functional specialty and a minimum of 4 years related professional technical experience.
Demonstrated knowledge of ASME Y14.5.
Technical expertise and knowledge of mechanical design associated with mechanical and electrical systems.
Significant technical expertise and knowledge of engineering principles and practices.
Demonstrated ability to lead, train and motivate technical staff.
Knowledge of industry practice for manufacturing.
Sufficient knowledge of fabrication and assembly practices so as to efficiently coordinate fabrication and assembly.
Good oral and written communication skills. Demonstrated ability to interact with other designers, engineers, and scientists in defining goals and contributing to their realization.
Technical expertise and knowledge regarding standards for Commercial off-the-shelf item Libraries for CAD systems.
General knowledge in a related scientific or related technical field.
Background in mechanical fabrication.
Demonstrated knowledge of Product Lifecycle Management systems such as: Windchill, Team Center.
This is a full time, 3 year, career-track term appointment that may be renewed to a maximum of five years and that may be converted to career based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs.
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.

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.
