EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Logo: Applied KiloVoltsApplied Kilovolts Ltd, in collaboration with the University of Brighton, is looking to appoint an enthusiastic, motivated and committed graduate to play a major role in a strategic two year research and development project. The project is to develop techniques and equipment to measure very low noise levels and low levels of voltage drift over extended periods in high voltage (HV) power supplies.  

Logo: University of Brighton

Applied Kilovolts, based in Worthing, West Sussex, are market leaders for HV, fast warm up, low noise DC power supplies operating at up to 60kV. A major part of its market is power-supply-critical applications such as mass spectrometry and low power x-ray equipment. Market demand is developing in such a way that power supply performance is becoming more critical leading to a need for better performance power supplies and the associated need for the measurement of that performance.

This opportunity, as part of the government’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme, will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to work in a leading edge development environment driving forward the design of the next generation of power supply measuring equipment. The successful candidate may also have the opportunity to register for an MPhil/PhD as part of this project if relevant. Previous applicants need not apply.


Key attributes: Bachelors degree at 2:1 or above in an appropriate scientific or engineering subject such as Electronic/ Electrical Engineering, Measurements, Instrumentation or Applied Physics as well as an ambition for spearheading a new development project. A higher technical degree or proven equivalent capability will be sought, and relevant industrial experience would be advantageous. The successful candidate will be an excellent communicator, have a proven investigative approach to problem solving, and is likely to possess a sound grounding in analogue electronics as well as an ability to develop new approaches to signal measurement.

The package: Early responsibility for a high profile development project in a leading company, a generous dedicated personal development budget and the opportunity to register for a funded higher degree where appropriate.
