Experimental Physicist (25799)

Cambridgeshire - south
to £60k DoE plus great benefits

Applied physics in the life sciences sector

This varied role is ideal for an experimental physicist with experience in the life-sciences field. You will be somebody with a creative and inquisitive mind, who can make that connection between an interesting phenomenon in the lab and potential for a ground-breaking development in life science instrumentation or diagnostics. Alongside a clear experimental, hands-on approach, the ideal physicist will have a strong theoretical foundation with the ability to solve complex problems through accurate analytical work.

The successful experimental physicist will form part of a successful and growing company working in the life sciences sector with a group of ambitious and talented engineers, biologists and biochemists.

Your technical background and personal qualities should include:-

  • An excellent undergraduate degree in physics, engineering or similar from a highly-ranked world-class university
  • An experimental PhD or equivalent industrial experience in a life science-related field
  • A multi-disciplinary approach to solving problems at the interface of physics, engineering and biology
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to develop collaborative relationships with your colleagues and clients

This role is open to a range of candidates from PhD to experienced; those who are more experienced will be expected to demonstrate their leadership and commercial insight. Candidates with experience in a relevant med-tech start-up company would be welcomed.

In return, the company offers an excellent salary with superb range of benefits including sharing in the company’s success. They also support their employees in personal development, providing the opportunity for each to follow their preferred career path.
