Job Vacancies

Current Vacancies:

FPGA Electronics Engineer
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a FPGA Electronics Engineer to join the Engineering Group at the Department of Space and Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory) to support the Department's space science instrumentation programme. The post holder will work within project teams to design, develop and test electronics sub-systems as required for the Laboratory’s space projects.
 
There are a number of on-going flight projects that this post will be immediately involved in including Legrange, Plato and Smile.
 
Some duties will include VHDL design coding, simulation, verification and implementation in hardware with at least 100MHz system clock speed. Develop FPGA topology trade-off / top level system architecture designs, produce modifications to existing VHDL designs, derive / define top level FPGA requirements. 
 
Contribute actively to the development of a project through being a member of multi-national project teams, negotiate and define work packages with other partners, which include industrial, commercial and other higher education institutes. Develop expertise in electronic engineering for spacecraft systems and space agency requirements. Undertake conceptual analysis (this would involve hand calculations and the design of simple models) and support the programme with documentation including analyses and presentations.
 
Duration of this post is funded for 2 years in the first instance.
