Teledyne e2v is an exciting place to work, come and join us!
Across the globe we deliver innovative developments in technology for high performance systems and equipment across Civil Aerospace, Defence & Security, Space, Industrial, Medical & Science applications. Our expertise has seen our involvement is some of the highest profile projects, from radar control in the Eurofighter Typhoon to kicker magnet control in CERN’s large hadron collider and our products are the x-ray source in 90% of the world’s cancer radiotherapy treatment machines.
In this key role, you will work directly with others in the growing Quantum Technology team to provide support and expertise on the various activities of Quantum Sensor development. Initially, your work will be focused on the precision timing aspect of Quantum Technology.
A significant part of the role will involve internal and external liaison between Teledyne e2v and other Quantum device stakeholders such as other functions within Teledyne e2v, MOD and Dstl scientists, university physicists and corporate engineering teams.
In this role you will:
- Provide scientific and technical support to project managers, team members and customers;
- Take a leading role in the development of precision timing technology at Teledyne e2v;
- Review project specifications and advise on feasibility of proposals;
- Identify opportunities for improvement of Teledyne e2v’s Quantum Technology understanding and implement improvement opportunities;
- Ensure that the appropriate equipment, processes and documentation exists for the correct manufacturing of the product;
- Determine and manage the technical risk on a project and to implement mitigation activities as appropriate;
- Ensure that the requirements of the customer are met;
- Generate and own appropriate test plans;
- Ensure Teledyne e2v’s QA (Quality Assurance) procedures are met.
To be successful, you are likely to have the following:
- PhD level or equivalent qualification in relevant field;
- Practical laboratory experience in precision timing;
- Experimental skills in laser physics, atomic physics and electronics;
- Project risk management techniques.
Any of the following - although not essential - would be useful:
- Experience as a post-doctoral or equivalent researcher;
- Motivation to further the development of Quantum Technologies based systems to commercial products;
- Experience on atomic clocks and applications;
Experience in the development and delivery of Quantum Sensors.
