Projects are varied, all highly innovative in nature and cover a diverse range of technologies for external customers. Typical projects include Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices, Biotechnology, Consumer Electronics and Robotics just to name just a few. Projects are typically 3-6months duration and quick turnaround ensuring that boredom will never be an issue!
The Graduate Physicist will:
• Design experimental apparatus and conduct proof-of-principle experiments
• Develop prototypes involving elements of electronics, optics, sensors, mechanics, etc
• Identify and research diverse new technologies for possible commercial exploitation
• Manage tasks as part of a multi-disciplinary product development team.
