Position title
Physicist – Defence Sector Engineering

A growing Defence company, based in Cambridge, offers an exciting opportunity for a Physicist to work on a wide range of cutting-edge technologies that will enhance the UK’s defence against external threats, with a focus on defensive technologies rather than offensive ones.

You will be involved in a variety of physics projects, including (but not limited to) thermal, optics, electromagnetics, acoustics, fluidics, chemical, and other scientific technologies. If you have experience with complex projects in these fields, I recommend providing as much detail as possible on your CV.

We are open to candidates from various sectors; however, it will be highly advantageous if you already have experience in the Defence sector.

As you will be working in the Defence sector, you will need to be able to obtain security clearance or already hold security clearance.

Given the increasing importance of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in various sectors, a keen interest in these areas would be welcomed, as many of your projects will involve work in this field.

In addition to working on complex and cutting-edge technologies, you will also be rewarded with an excellent starting salary, dependant on experience. The compensation package includes a bonus, enhanced pension, dental care, gym access, free lunch, and other excellent benefits.

The level of experience sought can range from a PhD holder who has worked in a post-doc role to someone with years of industry experience. We are looking to recruit several individuals for this team, so if you are in the early stages of your career, you will receive development opportunities, and if you are further along in your career, you will have the chance to mentor junior team members.

This company places a strong emphasis on collaboration, both within the team, with other teams, and with external parties.

Given the anticipated high level of interest in this role, and the company’s desire to recruit quickly, I recommend applying immediately if you are interested in this position to avoid missing out.

For more general information, please feel free to call Andrew Welsh, Director of Medical Devices Recruitment, and Scientific Recruitment Specialists Newton Colmore, on 0121 268 2240, or submit an application, and one of our team members at Newton Colmore will contact you. Please note we will not be able to discuss the role specifics until we have a copy of your CV.
