Consultant Physicist / Electronics Engineer (27070)

Cambridge - south
£Excellent salary and benefits

Grow your career working on electromagnetics and autonomous systems

Are you looking for the chance to use the skills developed in your electronics or physics PhD and seek a commercial career that will give you a good degree of autonomy within a supportive structure, this may be the opportunity for you.

Our client’s ground-breaking projects involve electromagnetics, AI / ML and cybersecurity. You could find yourself working on antenna design, magnetic communications, advanced signal conditioning or quantum sensors. Perhaps it will be autonomous systems, or maybe using an innovative approach to developing complex neural networks, such as K-shot learning. Whatever the project, you will call upon your technical skills, your versatility and your creativity to meet the challenge.

To be considered for this exciting role, you will need:

  • A PhD in Electronics or Physics, backed by an excellent academic record including a good degree (2:1 or above) and impressive A-Level results.
  • A genuine interest in a wide range of topics such as electronic engineering, electromagnetics mathematics, algorithm development, and signal processing, evidenced by personal projects as well as your academic work.
  • Excellent client-facing skills as the role would include presentations and working closely with clients.
  • British citizenship – the work is defence related and so dual nationals or citizens of other countries will not be considered, as a high level of security clearance will be required.

The flat structure of the team means our client can offer the opportunity to take on responsibility early. An excellent remuneration package is also available for successful candidates.

Keywords: Electronics, Physics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Electromagnetics, Digital Signal Processing, Cybersecurity, Consultancy, Defence, South Cambridge.
