Sensors and Devices Physicist

ID: 1282

Category: Physics


If you enjoy physics and like to be challenged, how about a job where you invent wearable biosensors, develop ultrasonic haptics or research MEMS fingerprint readers?

The Role

Our physicists work in multi-disciplinary teams to develop new technologies and products. You will build on our activities in haptics, biometrics, environmental sensors, medical monitoring and biosensors. Physicists at TTP contribute at all stages of technology development including invention, mathematical analysis, computational modelling, prototype design, laboratory testing and manufacture. Our physicists become all-rounders who can quickly grasp new ideas, solve our clients’ most challenging problems and communicate solutions clearly and with authority.

The scope of the role extends beyond technical development, evolving over time to include the prospection, sale and delivery of complex technology developments. Physicists develop practical experience in identifying markets and potential clients, uncovering valuable opportunities and helping clients to turn ideas into products. Sensors and Devices is a growing group and new members will have the opportunity to help define and develop the group’s expansion into new technology and market areas.

Qualifications and Training

  • A 1st or upper 2nd class degree (or equivalent) from a leading university in physics or a related discipline.

Skills and Experience

  • You have a very strong understanding of the fundamentals of applied physics, including both analytical and experimental ability.
  • Presenting your work will not phase you. You enjoy sharing the results of your work and explaining to a client why it matters to them.
  • Your insatiable curiosity for new ideas – whether it’s a new technology, or how a multinational really makes money – means you dig deeper to generate valuable insight.
  • Change is not scary. You jump at the chance to develop new skills, work on a problem you’ve never heard of before and take on new responsibilities.
  • Experience in sensors, MEMS, biotechnology, electronics, software or algorithm development is a bonus, but an excellent physicist will pick it up quickly.
