Duties and Responsibilities
UCL is one of the foremost universities in Britain and the world. The Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering is proud to host internationally-leading research groups covering a broad range of activities and spread over several sites. Our staff and students have a diverse range of interests and expertise, covering many areas of physics, engineering, medicine, physiology, computer science, and mathematics. This provides a highly stimulating multidisciplinary environment for learning and for scientific research. In addition to our research activities, we run a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes.
We are looking to recruit a systems engineer for the UCL Advanced X-ray Imaging (AXIm) research group.The post holder will be required to ensure the effective operation of the AXIm laboratories and equipment (e.g. x-ray sources, detectors, motion control stages and software interfacing all components); assist with research projects, contribute to the maintenance of laboratories, including the maintenance of equipment, instrumentation, provision of research materials and laboratory services, to advise staff and students on the use, maintenance and calibration of equipment.
This is an open ended position subject to satisfactory completion of the probation period.
Applicants must have a degree in engineering, physics or an equivalent qualification (HND/HNC, Level 4 NVQ) in a scientific or engineering discipline; strong programming skills; previous experience with hands-on practical engineering, namely component/system design/assembly, and handling laboratory instrumentation, ideally in assembling/interfacing/testing imaging or signal processing systems; understanding of the overall design and development process and ability to use appropriate documentation and techniques for each phase, including the ability to independently analyse and solve technical problems; ability to carry out assembly, integration, maintenance, calibration and testing tasks on complex technical equipment.
An MSc or a PhD in physics, engineering or equivalent is desirable but not essential, as is previous experience with x-ray imaging.
