We are looking for talented, enthusiastic Science & Engineering Graduates, who enjoy solving complex problems, to work alongside some of the most talented people in the UK.
We want you to help us by joining our highly skilled team designing the Antenna Structures that form part of the self-protection systems installed on fast jet, UAV, land and naval platforms.
You will use our super-computing facilities to develop 3D EM modelling skills to design innovative antennas at frequencies as high as 40GHz. Your designs will form key parts in high performance EW systems to meet challenging system requirements.
You will learn how to assess your work in anechoic test chambers and laboratories to develop robust designs that will function reliably in harsh environments to enable decades of use.
You will get the opportunity to develop these lifelong skills with the support of highly skilled colleagues.
Your role may even take you across the UK or abroad for technical reviews.
Please note that in order to apply for this opportunity you must be eligible for UK Security Clearance. Normally this is to the level of Security Check (typically known as “SC”) for our business, which includes having a minimum of 5 years permanent residency in the UK, but may need to be to a higher level for this particular role due to the nature of the projects and or programmes that the role will be supporting.
All of our roles require (a) a minimum of an upper Second class Bachelors/Integrated Master’s degree, or (b) a higher degree, such as an MSc or PhD/EngD. For this role, the subject should be Applied Physics or Physics.
We will support your personal development with training and help you to work towards professional accreditation if you wish.
We work in a modern, flexible environment and will accommodate your personal needs wherever possible.
