Graduate Physicist – Immediate Start
We need an exceptional 2019/2020 Physics Graduate to join a thriving Science & Technology Consultancy based in Cambridgeshire. This is very much a âhands-onâ physics role with a high degree of experimental science, but also requires excellent maths and fundamental understanding of physics from first principles, together with a passion for using science to solve real world problems and develop cutting-edge technologies.
This is an exceptional opportunity for a bright physicist who loves science and has a desire to apply their knowledge in a commercial setting. However, make no mistake -it may be called âconsultancyâ but this is real, cutting edge R&D science! 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 company is an excellent employer and the Physicist can expect bespoke training and mentorship programmes, plus excellent future career opportunities and a highly competitive remuneration package.
The Graduate Physicist will:
â¢ Design experimental apparatus and conduct proof-of-principle experiments
â¢ Develop prototypes involving elements of electronics, optics, sensors, mechanics, etc
â¢ Identify and research diverse new technologies for possible commercial exploitation
â¢ Manage tasks as part of a multi-disciplinary product development team;
â¢ Analyse, report & present results and findings to colleagues and external customers.
â¢ A 2.1 or 1st class BSc (Hons) or MPhys Degree in Physics, Applied Physics or similar from a top-tier university, along with a minimum of AAB grades at A-Level -or direct equivalent.
â¢ Broad, intuitive and hands-on understanding of how physics and maths effect processes and products in the real world
