An exciting new opportunity is available to join our NQIT team, developing and commercialising aspects of a flagship research project. The NQIT Hub builds on the world’s most advanced quantum research to develop practical technologies in entirely new sectors. It is funded by an award of £38m to a consortium of nine universities and is supported by a number of commercial and governmental partners.
The post is available for a fixed-term of 1 year, with the possibility of extension. Secondments will be considered.
As part of EPSRC’s £270m National Quantum Technologies Programme, the Hub has an international profile and corresponding responsibilities to achieve the highest levels of success. Effective communication with consortium members, partners and stakeholders will be crucial to the Hub’s mission and thus an important part of this role, as will the building of relationships with new external partners.
The successful candidate will be required to gain an in-depth knowledge of the relevant science therefore applicants should possess a physical science or engineering degree. Good interpersonal and communication skills are essential. Candidates are expected to demonstrate the ability to liaise effectively with a wide range of people within and beyond the University, including academic staff, industrial collaborators and funding agencies. Previous experience of working in collaborative teams involving both academia and industry would be an advantage.
