시 (時) is a light noun, that literally means time, but is mostly used for conditional conjunction, just like when in English. It's usually used in more formal styles often with nominals (but not always). (In Korean, nominalization increases formality in general)

You can also use 때 as a bit less formal alternative when used with regular predicates + -ㄹ attbutive ending.
