Text: Higher Research Scientist- Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography Job Ref: 66122 Job Title: Higher Research Scientist- Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography Location: Teddington Type: Permanent Closing date: 10th August 2018 Job Description NPL is the UK`s National Measurement Institute providing the measurement expertise that underpins UK prosperity and quality of life. From unhackable quantum communications and superfast 5G to antibiotic alternatives and more effective cancer diagnosis/treatments; technological advances must be built on a foundation of reliable measurement to succeed. Building on over a century`s worth of expertise, NPL`s science, engineering and technology makes this possible. NPL is a world-leading research facility, bringing together scientists and engineers from almost every field to help save lives, protect the environment and enable citizens to feel safe and secure as well as support global trade and innovation. NPL has a regional footprint with hubs around the UK, plans for international growth and a state-of-the art purpose-built laboratory in Teddington, south west London, where its scientists and engineers work with leading edge equipment and facilities. In line with significant organisational growth and transformation plans, NPL has a clear vision "to be an exemplary National Laboratory that undertakes excellent science and engineering and uses this to deliver extraordinary impact for the UK". We also clearly define our mission "to provide the measurement capability that underpins the UK`s prosperity and quality of life". The Dimensional Metrology Group within the Engineering, Materials and Electrical Sciences Department is a world leader in research and development of new techniques, best practice and novel instruments for dimensional measurement covering 1 to 3 dimensions over scales ranging from picometres to 10s of metres. The Group is looking to expand its activity and increase its impact in X-ray computed tomography for dimensional metrology. We are looking for a talented scientist or engineer to join a growing and highly motivated team to develop X-ray computed tomography for dimensional metrology. Typical applications are such as dimensional metrology of additive manufacturing. The successful candidate will work across several projects, including both research projects and industrial projects. The candidate is expected to be able to work collaboratively within a team and also be able to work independently. The projects may also involve a level of customer engagement and interaction is to be expected. Academic output through peer reviewed journals and conference presentations will be encouraged and there is ample opportunity for career development. The new recruit should: • be a quick learner, • be able to plan and conduct experimental work, • be able to use scientific software to analyse data and to write own code, • be able to integrate quickly with a well-established team, yet be able to work independently, • be creative and innovative, yet pragmatic in terms of problem solving, • have good theoretical knowledge in their field and the ability to apply it to practical situations, • be flexible and adaptable and willing to contribute to a range of projects as required by the business, • have excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to adapt to the target audience, • have a track record of delivering high quality output on schedule. The successful candidate will hold a PhD or equivalent experience, in a related field (e.g. Physics, Mathematics, Engineering) and ideally have experience in the design, implementation and operation of industrial X-ray computed tomography and knowledge of reconstruction methods. Further knowledge of dimensional metrology, instrument development, statistical data analyses and imaging processing would be an advantage. The ideal candidate will have experience in some or all of the following: • reconstruction algorithms • scientific software development (e.g. MATLAB, LabVIEW, CUDA, C/C ) • data analysis • basic electronics (design, build, test) • knowledge/practical experience with X-ray and X-ray detector • design of experiment We are a national laboratory and we currently have hubs in South West London, Cambridge, Birmingham, Huddersfield and Strathclyde. Benefits include 27 days` holiday, Life Assurance and Contributory Pension Scheme.
