Design and build large-scale experiments for particle probing

Are you a motivated and enthused experimental physicist, eager to work on cutting-edge development in high energy density physics? This role is to join a small team designing and building large-scale experiments to study high velocity impacts involving x-ray imaging, spectroscopy and particle detection. Your work will involve devising new solutions to substantial experimental problems; this will involve selecting and customising complex instrumentation as well as creating new experimental designs to be used for diagnostics..

The successful candidate will have the following:-

  • PhD in physics and good first degree from a highly-ranked university in physics or similar
  • Ingenuity in devising and customising experiments, specifically in particle detection and analysis
  • Experience working in an experimental research team
  • Enthusiasm and desire to work in a transformational real-world team environment

This dynamic company is well-funded and offers a friendly working environment close to Oxford. Working alongside the experimental physicists are complementary teams of simulation scientists and computational physicists. There are also close links to academic collaborators.

An excellent package is on offer, including competitive salary, share options, flexible working and free lunches.

This role is subject to vetting procedures similar to security clearance.
