We have an exciting opportunity for a Metrology Engineer to join our Metrology team at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre. The AMRC is a cluster of world-class centres for research into advanced manufacturing technologies used in the aerospace, power generation, medical and other high-value manufacturing sectors. The cluster has a global reputation for helping companies overcome manufacturing problems and has become a model for collaborative research involving universities, academics and industry, worldwide. We are part of the University of Sheffield who are the only university to feature in the Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2017.

The AMRC’s Metrology team is based in a state-of-the-art facility focused on advanced manufacturing research and development. We have a range of specialised equipment tailored to the demands of our industrial partners, including coordinate measuring machines (CMM), measurement arms, structured light scanners and 3D scanning microscopes.

Due to the continued expansion of AMRC, an additional Metrology Engineer is required as it is the AMRC vision to establish a world-class research facility that will take the UK's expertise in aerospace manufacturing to a new level, making it the leading supplier of advanced aerospace technologies in assembly, composites, machining and other associated technologies. You will be part of a team working on metrology projects for partner companies and research staff at the AMRC. Reporting to the Metrology group manager, the role will focus on metrology applications, providing support for AMRC projects using either contact probing or non-contact 3D scanning. It will involve designing experiments, investigating new technologies, carrying out experiments, data analysis and disseminating findings by writing reports and presentations to leading aerospace companies.
