Create tomorrow’s police technology
Technology is moving faster than ever, bringing amazing innovations. As our Research Technologist, you’ll explore the possibilities and make sure the Met benefits. It’s a brand new role where you’ll be at the cutting-edge of new and emerging hi-tech developments, creating solutions that will help fight crime and protect the general public.
If you’re passionate about engineering and science, and in touch with the latest tech trends, you could join our Technology, Research & Innovation (TRI) team, within our SCO35 Intelligence Command. Here, we work to meet the needs of frontline officers though a wide range of science and engineering disciplines, undertaking research, exploring off-the-shelf technologies, modifying existing solutions and creating all-new innovations.
It’s an opportunity to undertake research with leading UK academics. You’ll also be working with a range of parties including Met stakeholders and partner agencies. We’ll expect you to establish requirements and coordinate all technical matters within a research portfolio. You’ll also assess the feasibility of new research proposals, including technical and non-technical factors.
Right now, you could be undertaking research in academia or perhaps a government organisation. Whatever your background, you’ll have a degree (or equivalent) in an Engineering or Scientific discipline. This should come with experience in at least some of the following areas: Communications, RF systems, Audio/Video-based systems, Electronics, ICT, Data Analysis and product evaluation. Non-technical skills will be important too: presenting findings, handling contracts with academics and suppliers, and managing staff to deliver solutions.
