Cleanroom Assistant

9 April 2018

 An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit a Cleanroom Assistant in the Flight Test Facilities Group at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London. The group is currently involved in testing hardware for a number of ESA space missions, including Exomars, Solar Orbiter, Euclid and Plato. The successful applicant will provide support to these space flight hardware test campaigns by ensuring that the MSSL cleanrooms meet the required cleanliness and contamination control standards. This is a key role within the Flight Test Facilities Group as successful delivery of flight instrumentation depends on the laboratory's ability to maintain cleanliness and contamination control levels within the cleanrooms. 

The Mullard Space Science Laboratory is located on its own campus in the beautiful Surrey Hills, surrounded by woodland. MSSL is the UK's largest university space research group. Space science is a discipline that demands highly innovative technologies and MSSL has an international reputation for excellence in this area. UCL was one of the first universities in the world to become involved in making scientific observations in space. Since MSSL was established in 1966, we have participated in over 40 satellite missions with the European Space Agency, NASA (US), Japan, Russia, China and India, and flown over 230 rocket experiments. 

The Department is family friendly and applications would be welcome from applicants seeking part-time opportunities.
