The Faculty of Science and Engineering wishes to appoint a suitably qualified and highly motivated individual as an Electrical Controls and Software Engineer. The post is for a 2 year fixed term and will be located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire within the University of Manchester at Harwell operation. You willbe involved with experiments at Diamond Light Source National Synchrotron Facility, Central Laser Facility and ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, a world-leading Centre for research. The main purpose of the role is to help support the design, development, and running of the hardware and control systems, power systems, and electrical aspects of equipment, off-line beamline, and for the design of novel in-situ environmental cells for use with laboratory and synchrotron X-ray instruments, as well as other modalities such as neutron sources. You will work closely with other members of the technical and administrative support team and the Director, as well as other academics from The University of Manchester and staff from other on-site institutions. These facilities will be used to subject a wide range of experimental samples to a wide range of conditions/environments. You will be working as part of a dynamic team of academics, research fellows, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students that form The University of Manchester at Harwell, a newly formed rapidly developing facility for applying synchrotron science to key research challenges. The equipment you will help design will be used for UK and international research collaborations and will be a key enabler for the world leading studies being performed. You will hold a first degree in electrical and software engineering or an equivalent qualification (HND/HNC, Level 4 NVQ) in an engineering or scientific discipline, and will need to have hands-on practical electrical engineering experience and experience of interfacing to control systems and integration of those systems with the mechanical design, and programme control software e.g. Labview. As well as demonstrate intuitive analytic, diagnostic and problem solving skills, you will have strong awareness of Safety, Health and Environment issues in an engineering setting. You will be equally adept at working individually or as part of a team, self-motivated and proactive with the ability to apply your initiative. The role will require you to take responsibility for delivering assigned projects to completion. You must have a high level of understanding of electrical engineering and be able to interpret and express technical concepts. You will have good all round communications skills. You will need to be able to work flexibly to match the varied time demands of the role and be prepared to work outside of normal working hours to support beamtime experiments.
