Welcome to the Diamond Light Source Hub

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron. It works like a giant microscope, harnessing the power of electrons to produce bright light that scientists can use to study anything from fossils to jet engines to viruses and vaccines.

We work to ensure we are well run, economic, safe and efficient; always seeking to improve what we do and how we do it, both as individuals and as an organisation, to provide the best service possible.

We recruit from most STEM disciplines.
