Newcastle University is at the leading edge of research and teaching in the fields of Marine Science and Technology. In Marine Technology, the extensive engineering test facilities include the large Towing and Wind/ Wave/ Current Tanks in the Hydrodynamics Laboratory, the Emerson Cavitation Tunnel, engine testing facilities as well as our Research Vessel. These facilities are used to test and validate some of the latest concepts in ship design, offshore renewable energy systems and marine structures.
Mainly based in the Hydrodynamics Laboratory located on the main city-centre campus, you will install and maintain electronic and electrical systems, with particular focus on bespoke instrumentation for the experimental tests being conducted. Your work will include supporting projects for students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as researchers, academics and commercial clients.
Qualified as a minimum to NVQ3 in electrical/electronic engineering, or equivalent, you will have demonstrable practical experience in working in a technical or scientific environment. Experience with relevant instrumentation and data acquisition systems will be a distinct advantage.
A team player with good communication skills, you will be able to demonstrate good problem solving skills and an ability to prioritise your workload to meet changing demands.
