Solar Orbiter MAG Calibration Engineer
£36,926 - £45,547 p.a.
Are you highly collaborative? Do you have an impressive background in data processing and coding? Does the idea of applying your talents and creativity to the future of space exploration excite you? If so, then this could be the perfect career opportunity for you.
Duties and responsibilities
The Space & Atmospheric Physics Group in Imperial College London’s Department of Physics is in search of a Calibration Engineer to become part of the highly successful, multi-disciplinary team. This unique opportunity will enable you to contribute to magnetic field investigation of the European Space Agency Solar Orbiter Mission to study the Sun due to launch next year.
A degree in physics, engineering or a closely related discipline, or an equivalent level of research, industrial or commercial experience is essential. It is also essential to have experience in one or more programming languages including Python and/or C++ as well as in writing, testing and maintaining software pipeline or software modules for processing data. An interest in space hardware and in plotting and analysing experimental data is highly desirable, however, we are also interested in hearing from software minded graduates who excel at problem solving and like to be challenged.
This is a full time, fixed-term position for 2 years, with the possibility of extension subject to funding.
This career opportunity will suit a motivated individual who would relish working with a small team who have developed instruments that have produced outstanding science on missions such as Cassini, Rosetta and Cluster.
