£35k to £45k plus bonus

Technical challenges a-plenty with ethically selected projects

A growing and influential Cambridge company is seeking a talented hands-on physicist to join their team. Working at the cutting edge of product development, this client has developed high-value products and devices across a range of application areas, including medical, diagnostics and consumer products. They continue to work on increasingly ambitious projects and now seek a hands-on physicist to join them in development.

Successful candidates will have a PhD or equivalent commercial experience in complex product development following an undergraduate degree in physics from a well-ranked world-class university.

As an all-round applied physicist, you will be keen to devise and build experiments in the client’s purpose-built labs and able to use your fundamental science knowledge to analyse and develop real-world products. You will also be adept at creating advanced theoretical models to inform your design work.

Our client offers an invigorating work environment; they will support your development by offering mentoring and training and the potential for rapid progression in your career path, whether this is in a technical, management or commercial direction.

Based just off the A14, their modern offices have excellent transport links around Cambridge. Alongside a competitive salary, our client offers a generous pension and bonus scheme as well as the opportunity to work on projects that make a difference!
