We need an exceptional 2019 Physics Graduate to join a thriving Science & Technology Consultancy based in Cambridgeshire. This is very much a 'hands-on' physics role with a high degree of experimental science, but also requires excellent maths and fundamental understanding of physics from first principles, together with a passion for using science to solve real world problems and develop cutting-edge technologies.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a bright physicist who loves science and has a desire to apply their knowledge in a commercial setting. However, make no mistake -it may be called 'consultancy' but this is real, cutting edge R&D science! Projects are varied, all highly innovative in nature and cover a diverse range of technologies for external customers. Typical projects include Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices, Biotechnology, Consumer Electronics and Robotics just to name just a few. Projects are typically 3- duration and quick turnaround ensuring that boredom will never be an issue!

The company is an excellent employer and the Physicist can expect bespoke training and mentorship programmes, plus excellent future career opportunities and a highly competitive remuneration package.

The Graduate Physicist will:
* Design experimental apparatus and conduct proof-of-principle experiments
* Develop prototypes involving elements of electronics, optics, sensors, mechanics, etc
* Analyse systems from first principals, develop scientific solutions to challenging real-world technical problems and take them through the product development process;
* Identify and research diverse new technologies for possible commercial exploitation
* Manage tasks as part of a multi-disciplinary product development team;
* Analyse and report on statistical data from experimental sources, present results and findings to colleagues and external customers.

Requirements:
* A 2.1 or 1st class MPhys Degree in Physics, Applied Physics or similar from a top-tier university, along with AAB grades at A-Level -or direct equivalent.
* Broad, intuitive and hands-on understanding of how physics effects real processes and products in the real world
* Strong analytical and mathematical ability
* Ability to analyse a wide range of data, structure thoughts, draw robust conclusions and communicate results in clear, concise verbal and written English
