Skilled scientists are currently required to work on an extremely exciting design target in the race to create sustainable energy.

In this role, you will work with a small team to develop current target designs and invent
new ones. You will have a high degree of autonomy to pursue your own ideas and
approaches. You will be in an environment with its own experimental and manufacturing facilities, enabling you to move quickly, effectively and innovate. This will allow your ideas to progress from a basic concept to a working experiment over a short period of time. To facilitate this, you will collaborate across the technical team, using your expertise to ensure that targets are designed, manufactured, and fielded on experiments in a way that maximises performance.
You will also act as a source of knowledge and experience, that other scientists within the
company can draw on when pursuing their own ideas.

Responsibilities will include

  • Develop new inertial fusion schemes from basic theory.
  • Run simulations to understand in depth the dynamics and physical processes at work within our targets.
  • Use Python and other tools to analyse results and identify trends.
  • Provide specialist technical support and training, aiding other scientists to develop their own target designs and interpret their results.

This is a great role for someone who enjoys working on new concepts with the potential to turn around ideas in a short space of time. This role is perfect for someone who is interested in Fusion Energy and enjoys seeing the end result! For more info, apply now!
