Power Systems Design Lead (27046)

Oxfordshire area
to £90k package DoE

High voltage electromagnetics, pulsed power accelerator systems, load design

This group lead position will suit a candidate with an engineering background, advanced multi-physics and EM simulation skills, and specialist knowledge of pulsed power systems, ideally including high-voltage systems, accelerators and/or shock physics. This work is at the leading edge of load design for systems using HV pulsed power to accelerate payloads.

Your role will be to take a strategic view of load design and development approaches, and manage and hire into a growing team. You will also take the lead in the group's hands-on analytical design and simulation work.

Your CV will clearly show your:

  • Degree in engineering or a relevant physical science, or equivalent experience, and potentially a relevant PhD.
  • Extensive knowledge of relevant physics and electrical engineering concerns, along with pulsed power, high voltage systems, accelerator systems, and/or shock physics. Beyond pure research, you will have applied these skills in challenging engineering projects.
  • Knowledge of relevant software, to include electromagnetic simulation tools, and multi-physics simulation tools.
  • Prior group leadership experience in a related area in a scientific or engineering context.

This is a full time position based at company offices/labs. A competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package is on offer to the right candidate. This is a UK-based role requiring long term work permission without restriction or sponsorship.
