Come and do the kind of engineering that made you want to be an engineer. Stretch your technical skills while building human understanding. Promote sustainability and create new materials. And, alongside world-leading scientists and technologists, shape projects that improve lives, and daily life, in the UK and far beyond.
Put simply, come and discover the impact you can make when you’re equipped, encouraged and inspired to perform to your very best.
STFC’s Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (ASTeC) mission is to build the ‘Big Science’ facilities of the future; we design, build and operate particle accelerators and make major contributions to many of the biggest projects in the world today. Based at Daresbury Laboratory, we work with high-profile national and international partners that include the Cockcroft Institute.
As a member of the Femtosecond Lasers and Timing (FLT) group, you will help realise systems which generate and manipulate particle and photon beams with single-femtosecond precision.
About the role
We are looking for a synchronisation engineer to contribute to a multi-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers.
You will contribute to the design of technical systems for innovative electron beam facilities, including CLARA (currently under development at STFC Daresbury Laboratory) and UK XFEL.
You will work on the development of advanced optical and electronic systems used to synchronise electron beams and pulsed lasers with femtosecond precision.
The role will be appointed at either UKRI Band D or Band E, based on how you meet the criteria below.
