Job Description

Leading Science and Research business is building their design team. We are seeking a proven Design Engineer able to work on complex engineering scenarios; developing and enhancing experimental physics targets.

These targets are highly complex: they need to be manufactured to a high level of precision and they need to operate effectively in extreme environments. This places unique constraints on their design. As the ideal candidate, you will have experience modelling and designing components that are constrained by complex, real-world engineering requirements (e.g. Aerospace, Science, automotive…)
Responsibilities will include: 
As a key member of the target design team, you will: 
• Run simulations to understand in depth the physical processes at work within our targets 
• Use Python and other tools to analyse results and identify trends 
• Provide specialist technical support and training, aiding other scientists to develop their own target designs and understand results 
• Assist with the modelling and design of experiments in our lab 
• Provide feedback to improve our code and help identify bugs
