Universiy of Oxford Logo
Mechanical Design Engineer - University of Oxford
Job Title:
Mechanical Design Engineer
Fixed term for 3 years
Grade 8: £41,526 – £49,553 per annum
Department of Physics, University of Oxford

The Department of Physics is seeking a talented Mechanical engineer.

Applications are invited for the post of Mechanical Design Engineer in the Engineers group which provides design support for Physics research.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of three years.

The successful candidate will design, analyse and arrange for the production of components, mechanical moving parts, test rigs and experimental equipment for Physics research. A large portion of the work is in the area of precision instrumentation for experimental physics, with a focus on the design and analysis of opto-mechanical systems operating at cryogenic temperatures (typically ~100K, ~4K). You should be able to develop a concept into something practical and take ‘ownership’ of it.

Applicants should possess a degree in Mechanical Engineering or have equivalent experience. In the latter case, two references are required which specifically details the applicant’s professional level and explains how these are considered equivalent to the required qualification.

Previous experience in a research environment will be an advantage.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate that they can manage projects from conceptual design to the manufacturing and final assembly and testing.
