We are looking to recruit an energetic and enthusiastic Senior Technician Demonstrator in Electrical and Electronic Engineering to support the development and delivery of the curriculum across the subject area. In addition to the Electrical and Electronic areas in the faculty, the candidate is expected to support the wider curriculum in Engineering, which covers a range of undergraduate courses in Aeronautical and Mechanical, Automotive, Renewable and Industrial Engineering, plus postgraduate courses in Engineering and Unmanned aircraft system technology (UAST). In addition, due to the cross-disciplinary nature of the faculty the candidate would be expected to support requests from across the faculty, where appropriate.
The teaching and research activity in Engineering involves a significant element of laboratory/workshop activities. The post involves providing specialist knowledge, high-level technical and practical expertise in the areas mentioned above, contributing to the practical education of students through independent instruction and demonstration. This includes independently supporting and supervising student and external research projects. The successful candidate will provide specialist advice, training and instruction on equipment to academic staff and other relevant users. This will involve providing general support and training across the Engineering provision, especially techniques and equipment related to Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Applicants should hold at least a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a related field or relevant work experience, with a Master’s degree being desirable. Experience in testing, repairing and ensuring efficient running of a wide range of Electrical and Electronic equipment is a vital component of the role. Experience with Arduino/Raspberry Pi for programming and using high frequency RF and microwave systems would be welcome. Proven communication and organisational skills are vital to the role, and to be able and willing to manage practical spaces and ensuring a robust culture of health and safety to enhance the student experience across our courses.
The role is varied and challenging, so you will need to be a highly motivated individual who is able to work flexibly and to tight deadlines, both independently and as part of a team.
Welsh speaking is desirable for this role.
