You will work with multidisciplinary project teams made up of engineers and scientists to deliver and lead projects involving invention, analysis, computational modelling, prototyping, laboratory testing, process development, product design and transfer to manufacture.

You will work with a growing international client base from US to Israel to understand technology challenges then plan and execute development programmes to address them.
