A rapidly expanding Cambridge company seeks a PhD level physicist with a background in optics for an exciting client-facing position.

The company develops mathematical modelling software for a variety of academic and industrial clients. This position would involve providing technical advice and support to clients, as well as the sales team at both pre- and post-sales stages.

You will ideally be a PhDor Masters level physicist, possibly at an early stage of your commercial career. You will have a broad background in optics, lasers, electromagnetics and materials, together with a good understanding of the fundamental physics involved.

Excellent communication skills are a must, as you will be interacting directly with clients, understanding their needs, advising them and possibly training them on new modelling packages.

The following are required to be successful in this post:

  • A technical PhD from a good university, combined with a Physics or Electronics degree.
  • Excellent communication skills and a desire to work with people.
  • A good understanding of the physical principles underlying optics, lasers, electromagnetics and materials selection.
  • Familiarity with maths modelling packages would be an advantage.

Full permission to live and work in the UK without time limit, restriction or sponsorship will also be required. Candidates from the EU must have already been granted Settled or Pre-Settled Status at this time.
