PEOPLE

WORKING IN ASG

ASG Superconductors has created a real Italian superconductivity chain that can draw on over fifty years of experience. The company is in daily dialogue with world-leading research institutes and international companies operating in the particle-physics, energy and medical sectors and today employs over 200 people, with offices and facilities in Genoa, La Spezia, Newcastle (UK) and Morton Grove (Illinois - USA).

ASG is deeply aware that only through the continuous enhancement of people's skills can it remain competitive internationally, and continue to offer quality and industrial excellence for scientific customers and communities.

Growth, improvement and the enhancement of human heritage are our goals in a work environment aimed at innovation in a frontier area between the worlds of research and industry: ASG has for example supplied superconducting magnets for the LHC and detectors at CERN which were used in discovering the Higgs Boson.

The ASG Superconductors group of companies has recently undergone re-organization to incorporate all elements of its activity into a single structure. This challenges all employees to assist in providing their unique and precious contribution to the future development of the Group.

If you are attracted by the opportunities offered as a contributor to future of the company, this section is for you.
