Cambridgeshire - £33,000-£36,000

A technology company in Cambridgeshire is seeking a Post Doc Physicist.


The purpose of this role is to propose, investigate and evaluate novel projects and technologies associated with the themes of “sustainability” and “digital transformation”. The role will involve a range of activities including technology trends research, detailed assessment of technology status, roadmap and unmet needs as well as experimental design and execution. Technologies evaluated are expected to be diverse but with the expectation that the evaluation will require significant knowledge of Physics. This presents a significant opportunity for creative contribution and personal input in a varied area of novel technologies as well as an opportunity to experience first-hand ideation in a commercial environment and acquire new technical skills including Intellectual Property (IP) and market awareness.


• Work closely with the Platform innovation team to identify and justify topics of interest.
• Participate actively to ideation with well-considered suggestions.
• Prepare project proposals drawing from technical solutions, IP and market information as well as commercial consideration.
• Design and execute experimentation aligned with project requirements.
• Generate IP.
• Characterise devices using relevant test equipment and develop novel techniques and systems to improve understanding and capabilities.
• Characterise new materials in devices using a wide range of standard and novel techniques.
• Contribute to the construction of theoretical models in order to build a thorough understanding of the fundamental mechanisms underpinning the operation and performance of devices and systems.
• Fabricate devices in cleanroom and laboratory facilities following standard procedures and working practices. Devise new procedures where appropriate.
• Pro-actively compile accurate and detailed reports of experimental results and propose directions for further development.
• Conduct trend analysis and technology mapping to identify unmet needs to support this objective.
• Effective communication with synthetic chemists, analysts, device physicists, and project leaders.


• PhD in Physics and excellent academic credentials are essential. Relevant post-doctoral research experience is desirable.
• Experience in one or several of these areas: electronic or opto-electronics device physics, computer science.
• Experience in broad-based research focussed on developing and demonstrating materials for new technology applications is highly desirable.
• Experience in statistical analysis is highly desirable.
• Experience of developing testing procedures, including writing experimental and data acquisition control programmes for new devices is highly desirable.
• Experience of using materials in prototype device structures to demonstrate desired functional properties is desirable.
• Experience of identifying and developing theoretical models and implementing them alongside experimental work is highly desirable.
• Creative, inventive with an aptitude for experimental work and with experience of solving complex problems.
• A demonstrable interest in developing technical solutions across a range of projects and applications.
