South Kensington Campus with some international travel
Fixed Term: 6.5 months
Applications are invited for a Research Assistant to join the High Energy Physics group to work on Technology Transfer and Impact aspects, including the development of an innovative traffic-control technology “Traffipod”. The position is available for 6.5 months, available to start as soon as possible.
You will play an influential and leading role in design, development and implementation of electronic and sensor systems for the Traffipod, working in London, Ukraine and the MENA region. We will deploy several sensors, and they will be measuring a wide range of environmental parameters. You will also take a lead in the deployment of analysis from the sensors, with a view to optimising the Traffipod performance, in terms of its deployability and effectiveness under real traffic conditions.
You will help produce independent and original research within the High Energy Physics Group, submit publications to refereed journals and help with the administration of the Research Group. You will also fully engage in the research activities of the Group by working together with postgraduate students, other research associates and academics.
You will be required to regularly spend time in Ukraine and MENA, and other UK and foreign travel is also likely.
You will have an MSc (or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering in which structural engineering plays a major part.
In addition, you must be able to demonstrate the following essential criteria:
