The UKRI Microelectronics Centre based at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is a specialist Centre dedicated to stimulating and supporting the use of sophisticated microelectronics design flows within our large international customer base of more than 650 European Universities and Research Establishments.
We have an opportunity for an industrial placement student to join a small team of highly qualified microelectronics engineers who will contribute to one of our projects while we will provide real-world experience!
This ambitious role will offer the opportunity to get directly involved in our projects. We work on a wide range of problems from novel device modelling, complex analogue circuits through reprogrammable FPGA based systems to large digital ICs implemented at very small transistor geometries. Valuable experience will be gained, and there will be an opportunity to demonstrate initiative and apply skills to challenging microelectronics problems.
If you are currently studying for an MEng in Electronic Engineering (or similar) then there is a chance to join our team working on analogue circuits, RF analysis, device modelling or Photonic ICs. We recruit the best students and further opportunities may then exist to return to STFC after completion of your studies as a Graduate Engineer.
If you love microelectronics, enjoy problem solving, get a kick out of making things work and relish the idea of working on leading-edge topics then we encourage you to apply!
