  • The ISIS neutron and muon source is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences. Our suite of neutron and muon instruments give outstanding insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale. Professional engineers maintain and improve the facility to ensure it remains as world leading.
  • An opportunity exists within the ISIS Design Division for a Mechatronics Graduate Design Engineer. The position will provide an outstanding opportunity for a wide variety of design, analysis and project engineering experiences associated with high precision moving equipment. 
  • The diverse nature of the facility is mirrored in its variety of engineering systems. Mechatronics and the associated Electrical control systems are an important part of the ISIS facility, sitting at the heart of many of our instrument systems, and in other areas, requiring strong integration with other mechanical, electrical and scientific systems. The motion components used range from large industrial motors to miniature actuators and sensors. The controls systems are modern, real-time based Programmable Logic Controllers, capable of delivering coordinated motion across many motors. Most projects at the STFC ISIS facility are one-off special designs!
