Senior Physicist, Modelling and Analysis (26536)

Oxford area
£60k to £90k DoE plus benefits

Technical team lead for shock physics modelling

This is a new Senior Physicist role within an expanding team working on specialised modelling and design problems in a shock physics application. As well as contributing technical knowledge, the successful Senior Physicist will mentor junior colleagues and guide project work.

The role involves using theoretical physics designs to invent new complex systems, requiring a good understanding of the effects of massively high temperatures and pressures on components’ shapes and materials. There are unusually complex physical processes at play and the team will work together to create modelled solutions. The systems are manufactured in-house with the resultant experimentation and analysis used to maximise performance.

The requirements are:-

  • PhD from a highly-ranked university in physics or engineering (or relevant industry experience)
  • Robust post-doctoral or industry experience in simulation tools for complex multiphysics systems
  • Ability to lead a small group of junior physicists and engineers in both technical and project development
  • Some knowledge of high-energy shock physics or high-density plasma physics
  • Experience in using Python for analysis of experimental data
  • Enthusiasm and desire to work in a multidisciplinary team environment

This dynamic company is well-funded and offers a friendly working environment close to Oxford. An excellent package is on offer, including competitive salary and share options.
