PhD Physicist (25488)

£35,000 to £40,000 DoE

Transition from academia to industry; working on experimental physics

Are you completing your doctorate? Close to a viva? Perhaps correcting your thesis?

Are you a Physicist? Do you enjoy problem solving? Puzzles?

Yes to all of these? Well then, we’ve been looking for you!

Over the past 10 years, this company has made scientific discoveries which have led to IP generation. They are continuously probing the edges of technology to see how they can apply fundamental physics knowledge in areas such as optics, microfluidics and electronic sensors in areas such as biology and chemistry. They have built complete optical systems, experimental test-rigs and microscopy applications to further their work and have further on-going applied projects in the pipeline.

So does that sound of interest?

Send through your CV – provide full details of your academic background (including overall grades / subjects at university and pre-university); detail the experimental project work you’ve done; and evidence why your application is of note! (If you don’t write about it on your application, we are not going to assume you have the skills, knowledge or experience.)

We will review all applications and those shortlisted will be contacted. Note that applicants will need existing rights to work in the UK; no company sponsorship is on offer. It is expected that you will have good communication skills, so please document your relevant experience in your application.

This is a full-time, permanent position in industry, based at dedicated labs in Cambridge. The work is multidisciplinary and may be in areas outside your doctorate domain. Interested candidates can therefore expect to gain new skills. Further, they will be rewarded with an excellent remuneration package.

Keywords: PhD, Optics, Lasers, Experimental Test-Rigs, Microscopy Development, Instrumentation, Electronics, Sensors, Scientific Applications

Please note: even if you don't have exactly the background indicated, do contact us now if this type of job is of interest - we may well have similar opportunities that you would be suited to. And of course, we always get your permission before submitting your CV to a company.
