We have a number of vacancies for Physicists to join our R&D Physics group in Crawley. The Physics group is responsible for providing support to the business and contribute with designs and measurements in the following areas: Physics of Radiotherapy Systems, including beam generation and dosimetry (electron beams, MV and kV photon beams), general Radiation Physics, Monte Carlo simulations and other computational modelling methods, Control Systems for experiments, Microwave components and theory, Waveguide testing and tuning, Optics, Physics of Detectors and Imaging Systems.
Successful applicants will take a leading role in supporting the development of new products and will be involved on a number of projects including both computational and experimental activities. Ideally candidates will have experience of medical accelerator systems and the ability to contribute in several of the areas that the Physics group is responsible for. Projects will often offer interaction with Research Hospitals and other Institutions, therefore exceptional written and spoken communication skills will be required. Our preference is for candidates to be educated to MSc or PhD level. The ability to work to tight deadlines and within a successful team is also essential for these roles.

Current vacancies include (but are not limited to):
  • Radiotherapy System Physicist: You will take a leading role in designing, planning, implementing and managing test programmes in order to produce performance data for Elekta Linac systems. You will be involved in a variety of R&D projects. You will ideally have an MSc or a PhD degree in Medical Physics, Radiation Physics or closely related discipline and a minimum of 3 years experience working within the Medical Devices industry or a Radiotherapy Hospital department (although experience as a Radiation Physicist in another area will be considered). Experience with international compliance standards and/or Physics QA programmes will be an advantage.
  • Accelerator Physicist: You will provide the business with technical support of Elekta RF electron linear accelerators and associated developments, with particular focus on beam generation, transport, control and monitoring. This role will require an understanding of periodic accelerating structures, electron sources, RF sources and electron beam dynamics. Ideal candidates will have a PhD degree in Physics, Accelerator Physics, Particle Beam Physics or closely related discipline. Candidates will have ideally a minimum of 5 years experience as an accelerator physicist, involved with modelling aspects of accelerating structures as well as beam experiments, either in a research or industrial environment. However applicants with less experience yet exceptional skills will also be considered.
