Institute of Physics

The Institute of Physics is a leading scientific society. We are a charitable organisation with a worldwide membership of more than 50,000, working together to advance physics education, research and application. We engage with policymakers and the general public to develop awareness and understanding of the value of physics and, through IOP Publishing, we are world leaders in professional scientific communications.

We are a charitable organisation with aspirational goals. Promoting physics and supporting physicists are at the heart of all we do whether it is developing programmes to encourage more students to study physics in our schools, researching the impact of physics on the economy, promoting a code of practice to ensure equal career opportunities for women in physics, or running workshops for physicists from developing countries to help them exploit the benefits of their research. We also welcome the talents of people who are not themselves physicists to help us achieve our goals.

The Institute’s headquarters are located at 76 Portland Place, London and employs almost 80 staff in London and 60 nationwide and is divided into a number of different departments.

This is an exciting time to join the team in our central London office.  As we move into the next phase of our five-year strategy, which will include our move to the heart of the redevelopment in King’s Cross, close to partners such as Wellcome and Google, we are seeking new talent to help us create a contemporary organisation fit for the future.
