• An ability to work as part of a team and focus on customers’ requirements.

Experience from some of the following would be advantageous:*
• A post-graduate research degree or industrial experience in electromagnetics, RF and microwave electronics, on-wafer calibration and measurement, electro-optics, multi-physics characterisation
• Practical work experience with test and measurement equipment
• Demonstrable experience with commercial computational electromagnetic modelling and analysis tools.
• Practical computer programming experience, such as Matlab, LabView, or similar tools
• Ability to develop and apply advanced research techniques to solve complex and difficult measurement challenges
