This highly acclaimed UK company develop a range of tools that are used in industry and academia. They are currently expanding their European “universities team” who work with leading professors and educators in how material choice impacts projects across a wide range of applications – defence, engineering, aerospace, healthcare and manufacture.

They are currently looking for people who have a passion for materials / engineering and education, and that spark of business acumen: this role involves both materials science and business development.

Your role in the business will involve engaging with educators, giving technical presentations and demonstrations, identifying their needs, and communicating these to your colleagues. You’ll also be involved in developing promotional materials.


  • PhD level qualification in materials science or similar (application of materials knowledge is more important than research experience of niche materials).
  • Experience using technical software packages.
  • Excellent communication skills in German and English (both written and spoken).
  • Experience in teaching / demonstrating (ideally a materials oriented subject / course).
  • Flexibility to travel within Europe and further afield (up to a week, 3-5 times a year; and occasional day or overnight trips).

The company are well-regarded for their culture and how they support careers. They employ great people, and do their best to accommodate their needs. For this role, an excellent remuneration package is on offer.
