Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC)
STFC is one of the UK’s seven publicly funded Research Councils responsible for supporting, co-ordinating and promoting research, innovation and skills development in seven distinct fields.
Our uniqueness lies in the breadth of our remit and the sheer diversity of our portfolio, as we harness our world-leading expertise, facilities and resources to drive science and technology forward and maximise our impact for the benefit of the UK and its people.
We don’t simply deliver a non-stop flow of fundamental insights and breakthroughs in spheres ranging from particle and nuclear physics to space, laser and materials science. We also have a clear focus on the need to meet real-world requirements through new medicines, cleaner energy, safer aircraft, pioneering security solutions and much more besides.
We combine the radical with the practical and blend blue-skies thinking with hard-headed applied science. Through our UK operations and our involvement in major international collaborations, we generate outcomes that shape societies, strengthen economies, build industries, create jobs and transform lives.
We are currently looking for talented Electronic, Electrical, Mechanical and Software Engineers to join us in delivering cutting edge solutions for an exciting range of scientific challenges.
Our engineers provide the technology that allows our world-leading science to make a real difference in areas that really matter: from cancer treatment to airport security, high-tech jobs to hydrogen powered cars, energy generation to accident scene emergency care, our impact is felt in many aspects of daily life. We provide and exploit space and astronomy technology, a world-leading neutron scattering facility, ultra-fast supercomputers, amazing scientific instruments and some of the most powerful lasers in the world. We work with industry and academia throughout the UK, Europe and the world.
Whether you are beginning or furthering your career, we can offer you excellent opportunities to test out and broaden your skills and experience and to gain real technical and managerial expertise working in dynamic team and project environments.
STFC can offer you an excellent working environment. Our laboratories are based in beautiful rural locations in Cheshire, Oxfordshire and in Edinburgh, with great amenities and quality of life for you and your family. We are at the centre of burgeoning high-tech campuses buzzing with economic investment and even more promise for the future. Our people enjoy attractive benefits and plenty of opportunity for development.
