We need an exceptional Materials Science Graduate to join a thriving Science, Engineering & Technology Consultancy based in Cambridgeshire. This is very much a 'hands-on' materials research role with a high degree of experimental science, but also requires fundamental understanding of the underlying chemistry and physics, plus a passion for using science to solve real world problems and develop cutting-edge technologies.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a bright graduate Materials Scientist or Polymer Scientist to apply their knowledge in a commercial setting. Make no mistake - it may be called 'consultancy' but this is real, cutting edge laboratory based R&D science! Projects are varied, highly innovative and cover a diverse range of technologies for external customers. Typical projects include Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices, Fluidics, Biotechnology, Consumer Electronics and Robotics just to name just a few. Projects are typically 3-6 months duration and quick turnaround ensuring that boredom will never be an issue!

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

The Graduate Materials Scientist will:

Design experimental apparatus and conduct proof-of-principle experiments
Apply their broad materials knowledge -mechanical properties, surface chemistry & polymers to develop solutions to challenging real-world technical problems
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 data from experimental sources, present results and findings to colleagues and customers.


A 2.1 or 1st class BSc (Hons), MSci or MChem Degree in Materials Science, Polymer Science or similar from a top-tier University and AAB at A-Level -or equivalent.
