Person specification

The successful applicant will be analytical, with the capacity to develop solutions from first principles. You will possess excellent attention to detail and be self-motivated to meet deadlines without sacrificing the quality of your work. A creative but methodical approach to development is essential, along with a flair for problem solving, a determination to understand new concepts, meticulous experimental technique and the ability to develop solutions for complex problems from first principles.


This challenging, cross-disciplinary role will require you to gain a good understanding of many complimentary areas: the science of metrology, optics, software and electronics.  You will be a self-starter in uncertain situations and maintain good record-keeping.  As a reliable, motivated and organised team player, with the ability to work both alone and as team, you will take a logical and innovative approach to solving problems.
