Current Vacancies

Research Associate in Space Plasma Physics

Publication date:

We seek to appoint a scientifically productive research associate to undertake research in the general area of magnetospheric physics but with emphasis on the magnetospheric substorm, auroral physics or radiation belts. This project is expected to utilise state-of-the-art data from the NASA THEMIS, Van Allen Probes and MMS missions, and ESA Cluster auroral acceleration region campaigns.

Administrative Assistant

Publication date:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Administrative Assistant to join the Department of Space and Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory). The successful candidate will work as part of a vibrant administrative team which comprises 11 people and will be based at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory in Holmbury St Mary. The appointee will also liaise with the administrative, teaching and academic staff based on the main UCL campus in Bloomsbury.

Workshop Instrument Maker and Fitter

Publication date:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of Workshop Instrument Maker and Fitter in the Mechanical and Thermal Engineering Group in the Department of Space and Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory) to support the laboratory’s space science instrumentation programme. The successful candidate will work alongside 5 other members of the group in the mechanical workshop. The work carried out in the workshop involves manufacture of bespoke parts for laboratory experiments and space flight instrumentation. In addition to this a significant amount of work is outsourced and requires inspection and processing. The outsourced work varies from painting, coating and other specialist processes not carried out in the laboratory as well as the manufacture of parts not suitable for the workflow in the workshop. It is important in this environment to maintain quality standards and the associated paperwork that is part of each space flight project. 

Research Associate in Weak Lensing Cosmology (Ref:1726840)

Publication date:

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Department of Space and Climate Physics (MSSL Space Science Laboratory)  to join a team working on Euclid.  Euclid is the European Space Agency’s next space telescope, due for launch in 2021, whose primary science objective is to determine the nature of dark energy using weak lensing and galaxy clustering measurements.
