Consultant Name : Alex Hannigan-Train
Job : Senior Physicist - Sensing Systems
Job Ref : 11287
Location : Cambridge
Salary : -
Description :
We need a Senior Physicist (or Principal Physicist) with a strong bias towards experimental or applied physics in a commercially driven R&D environment.

The Senior / Principal Physicist will be a natural problem solver who gets a thrill by developing novel solutions to solve complex science and technology problems. You will have broad experience of developing systems incorporating sensors, analogue and digital electronics, precision mechanical components, optics, embedded software and other aspects of product design. You will still need solid maths and analytical skills -many problems are solved by systems analysis and modelling as well as experimental techniques.

The company are looking for a talented Senior Physicist -ideally with expertise in developing sensing systems including short range wireless technologies such as Near-Field, inertial or optical sensors. Any experience of medical devices (eg drug delivery systems, wireless patient monitoring /eHealth etc) would be of particular interest. They require an ideas generator, someone who gets excited -not daunted by a new problem!

To be considered for the role of Senior Physicist you need the following:Education

  • A Masters (MPhys MSc MPhil MRes) or Doctorate (PhD/EngD/DPhil) in Physics, Engineering or Electronics or closely related subject.
  • A Undergraduate degree Bachelors (BSc/BEng/BA) 2.1 or above
Skills & Experience:
  • Strong mathematical skills
  • Imaginative and inquisitive mind, eager to learn new skills and to develop solutions for interesting and complex problems
  • Excellent communication and reporting skills
  • Experience in the practical application of at least one branch of Applied Physics (for example, Optics and Electromagnetism, Fluid Dynamics or Condensed Matter Physics)
  • Project Management skills (particularly at Principal Physicist level)
