Contracts offered until 20th December 2011
An exciting opportunity has arisen to work with the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA), an alliance of six (soon to be eight) universities. SUPA seeks to place Scotland at the forefront of physics research globally through an inter-institutional management structure. There is a coherent staffing strategy and a Scotland-wide research strategy.
The SUPA Knowledge Transfer vision is to grow its KT activities significantly through increasing contracts and consultancy with industry.
Closing date: 19 June 2009
Salary Scale:£28,839 - £35,469
Reporting to their University line manager and working closely with the academics and the KTOs across SUPA, the Technologists will be expected to work on a portfolio of short to medium term industrial contracts (weeks to 6 months max.) The Technologists should have experience in the successful completion of applied research projects, and relevant industrial experience is desirable.
Each technologist will carry out contract and consultancy work for external organisations/industry in order to expand the interaction between SUPA, industry and other external organisations. These projects will need specific technical expertise or access to equipment in relation to a relevant SUPA technology area (see http://www.supa.ac.uk for descriptions of SUPA research and technology areas).
