Preference would be given to those with experience in solar thermal collectors. Further to this, it is expected that the assistant has experience with several computational methods, such as Matlab, Abaqus and SOLIDWORKS. Importantly, the candidate must have a strong interest in developing rapid and conventional prototypes. Further information can be found on the Job Profile.
The post is full-time for fixed term for 36 months. This is a fully funded KTP project, the Assistant will be expected to start as soon as possible. The starting salary for the post is £31,054 inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits also include 30 days annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
