About the role
Are you a recent PhD science graduate interested in a career in scientific software development? We are offering exciting new roles within our team where you will receive formal, professional software development training in addition to a wealth of on-the-job training from highly experienced scientific software engineers.
In this accelerated development scheme, you will be interacting with scientists to convert scientific requirements and research objectives into software for achieving these goals. You will be a part of a large, collaborative and globally distributed team of fellow developers helping to solve scientific problems with software.
Who are we?
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is one of Europe’s largest science research organisations. We’re trusted to support, enable and undertake pioneering projects in an amazing diversity of fields. Through world-class facilities and people, we’re driving ground-breaking advances in science and technology.
ISIS is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences. Our suite of neutron and muon instruments gives unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale. We support a national and international community of more than 3000 scientists for research into subjects ranging from clean energy and the environment, pharmaceuticals and health care, through to nanotechnology and materials engineering, catalysis and polymers, and on to fundamental studies of materials.
You will be a recent PhD graduate in a STEM discipline (not Computing), who is interested in switching careers from research to professional software development.
You will have a strong interest in software development, be a fast learner, have a positive ‘can do’ attitude, be able to communicate effectively with developers and scientists alike, friendly and helpful manner, and a logical, analytical approach to problem solving.
