Skills and qualifications required from the following:

An experienced engineer or scientist with the following attributes:

  • A degree in physical sciences, electronics, or communications engineering, or similar.
  • Ideally you have prior experience in the areas of RF design, familiarity with radar, or antenna design; although we will consider anyone able to show an academic foundation that serves as a good basis for developing in these areas.
  • You would ideally have familiarity with at least one of the well-known computer simulation tools often used for electromagnetic modelling; for example, CST MWS, COMSOL, FEKO or MATLAB. But we can offer training if needed.
  • Any hands-on practical / laboratory skills would be a bonus; there are opportunities to assist or lead on RF characterisation measurements in our Bristol test facility.
  • A top top-level appreciation of how missile Survivability, Low Observability and Radar Cross Section (RCS) Design are interlinked.
  • Proven delivery of technical work packages and projects with successful technical work delivered both individually and as part of a team.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, highly familiar with Office software; able to understand and communicate complex subject matter to both experienced personnel and those less familiar.
