GROUP LEADER – Electronic Systems
A new Group Leader is required to play an important role in the realisation of the future vision of
Diamond Light Source, one of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world. Our organisation houses the UK’s synchrotron light source, a giant microscope that can produce beams of light 10 billion times brighter than the sun, to probe the structure and composition of matter. From viruses and vaccines, to alternative energy solutions and nanotechnology, it underpins research and innovation for more than 8000 scientists, with over 90 research organisations already utilising its unique services.
Development of synchrotron technology proceeds at a blistering, relentless pace and requires cutting edge and exceptionally resilient technical solutions to facilitate its critical work. With ever increasing needs, including new controls systems, precision motion systems and, interlocking and protection, it is essential that we enhance our solutions to fully support both current and future needs. To help drive our vision a dedicated Electronics Systems Group is being established that will take ownership of our current solutions as well as developing new solutions and provide strategic advice across the facility.
This role will see you carrying out aspects of staff management, project management, and giving leadership to meet overall business objectives. In the wider sense, you’ll work with Engineers and Scientists in order to establish performance requirements and support the operation of the facility.
