Are you interested in working for a world top 100 university?

We have an exciting opportunity in the AMRC for someone with a passion for software development looking to use his or her skills in manufacturing to make an impact on UK productivity.

You will work as part of The Integrated Manufacturing Group (IMG), delivering projects looking at robotics, automation and digital transformation activities. Housed within AMRC’s state of the art Factory 2050, the team has grown organically over the last seven years and is expanding further to meet demand. As a Software Engineer you will join the Factory 2050 team working as part of an agile development team, utilising the latest technology, to deliver research projects of one to 36 months duration.

Digital Manufacturing is one of three key themes within Factory 2050 and your role will look at the development of software applications for “the 4th Industrial revolution”. Working with some of the largest names in Aerospace, Automotive and Construction, your work will encompass the implementation of Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), and Digitally Assisted Assembly (DAA) technologies, for advanced manufacturing systems. You will be a software engineer, competent in a number of languages. We are looking for a diverse skill-set, including good organisational skills, and the ability to research, problem solve, design, and implement ideas in a hands-on environment. In this role, you will be required to have a practical approach, a positive attitude, and be a confident communicator. This post is aimed at both recent graduates and applications with relevant experience in a research or industrial environment.  

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
