Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Technician (TTE Programme)

Updated: about 1 month ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 12 Jun 2021

The mandate of the Mechanical and Materials Engineering (EN-MME ) group is to provide to the CERN community specific engineering solutions combining mechanical design, fabrication and material sciences.

The Materials, Metrology & NDT (EN-MME-MM ) undertakes the development, selection, specification, characterisation and analysis of materials. The section provides support for the quality control of materials and components including NDT and dimensional controls; conceives and realises a large range of static and dynamic mechanical tests and measurements and performs failure analyses.


As a technician, with computed tomography and/or industrial radiography competencies, you will join the team in charge of  Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) activities run transversally on all kind of CERN projects.

As part of the NDT service team and depending on your qualifications and work progress you will:

  • Perform X-ray computed tomography inspections on a variety of components and assemblies using a Zeiss Metrotom 1500 micro-tomograph and VG Studio MAX software;
  • Perform radiographic inspections of components and welds using fixed-post X-ray generators in an irradiation laboratory, mobile X-ray generators and gammagraphy sources on different CERN premises and digital radiography systems for radiography interpretation;
  • Produce testing reports, advise users on problems related to NDT and present your results in technical meetings;
  • Participate in the maintenance and development of equipment and laboratories.

You may have the opportunity to be trained and involved in the other NDT methods beyond your present qualifications including conventional and phased array ultrasonic flaw detectors; ultrasonic immersion testing system, and video-endoscopes.

Specific skills required for this project:

  • For the computed tomography activities, experience with computed tomography equipment and with visualization and analysis software;
  • For the industrial radiography activities, valid certifications in RT Level 2 (following ISO 9712 or equivalent) and valid nationally-recognized certificate for operating X-ray generators and radioactive sources for industrial radiology;
  • General knowledge of other NDT techniques;
  • Basic knowledge of material science and joining techniques.
