Fermilab’s engineering community (including engineering associates and engineering physicists) is spread throughout the lab and makes up a large part of the Fermilab team. The chief engineer and deputy chief engineer will engage with a wide range of issues affecting the engineering community and the lab, including:
- Recruiting, development, diversity and overall health of Fermilab’s engineering community
- Consistent engineering processes in areas such as the Contractor Assurance System and other enterprise management systems
- Serving as an interface point with other labs on general engineering issues
