Senior Sensor Physicist (26521)

Cambridge
£50k to £65k DoE + options

Chance to work on a sensor forming an integral part of common household items

This well-respected Cambridge start-up is seeking a Senior Sensor Physicist, who will utilise tools such as COMSOL Multiphysics to simulate sensor behaviour and understand the impact of sensor performance parameters as part of an overall system, and make optimised design choices. They are targeting a variety of markets including domestic products these include automotive, medical and hand-held devices. The technology/application area is already proven but there is a vast market to explore.

As a Senior Sensor Physicist you will have a good technical university degree, possibly in Physics or Electronic Engineering along with significant knowledge of the following:

  • Simulation and modelling of complex electromechanical devices, or a related field
  • Use of finite element simulation in mechanical and electrostatic domains
  • An understanding of sensor physics and sensor system design
  • Processing and analysing datasets and deriving simplified models of complex data
  • A multidisciplinary outlook and hands-on approach

There are a few areas that give extra beneficial skills such as knowledge of piezoelectric sensors and materials; simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics and processing using MATLAB. Though none of these are essential.

This is an exciting challenge within a leading start-up offering excellent potential for professional growth and a competitive salary with bonus, stock options and pension.

Keywords: Sensor Design, Simulation, Modelling, FEA, COMSOL Multiphysics, MATLAB, Cambridge
