SHINE Technologies is seeking an Instruments and Controls (I&C) / Electrical Engineering Manager to oversee the design, development, procurement, and testing of systems used to control and monitor processes, as well as provide power for our new medical isotope production facility. This position works as part of a collaborative team that oversees the design of the control systems and selects instruments and equipment for the SHINE facility. SHINE engineers are designing systems that will produce isotopes to help diagnose heart disease, treat cancer, and take us another step closer to clean energy.

Areas of responsibility for this position includes leading with the team to determine control strategies, design of control system hardware and software, instrument selection, and electrical power distribution for the molybdenum-99 production facility. The team will need to work with procurement, vendors, and the construction team to procure, install, and test the I&C/electrical equipment. In addition, the team works with the licensing team to maintain the accuracy of the I&C/electrical licensing basis.

Currently, the designs for the Molybdenum-99 production facility electrical systems and instruments are nearly complete, while there will be more design on the control systems and cable routing. This role will thus be focused on the design of the aforementioned items as well as vendor/construction management, commissioning, turnover to operations, and operations support of all I&C/Electrical scope.
