Salary - £28,839-£35,469 per annum
(subject to experience and qualifications)
The Surrey Space Centre is currently working on systems design and simulation of micro electric thrusters as part of its research effort in space vehicle control and space propulsion. The 24 month project, entails the design, simulation and experimental testing of a new micro electric thruster (ion engine). Although the work will be focused on the above areas the RA is expected to work on related projects on space vehicle control and space propulsion for other ESA and EPSRC funded projects. Knowledge of plasma physics, electric propulsion systems, experimental testing, mathematical modelling and programming (MATLAB and C++) with some experience is required.
You will have a PhD or similar background in spacecraft electric propulsion, plasma physics with an emphasis on experimental work.
