Position: Research and Innovation Engineer (Mechatronics)
Institution: University College London
Department: Sainsbury Wellcome Centre
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (SWC) commenced research operations in Spring 2016 bringing together world-leading scientists to investigate how brain circuits process information to generate perception, form memories and guide behaviour. Developed through the vision and partnership of the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and Wellcome, and with substantial investment from these partners, the mission of SWC is to generate and test experimentally tractable theories of brain function; The SWC Fabrication Laboratories (FabLabs) support and accelerate innovative scientific research through the design, development and deployment of new research instruments. The FabLabs provide multi-disciplinary engineering expertise, enabling assessment of scientific and technical requirements, proposal and development of engineered solutions. A high level of investment in the FabLab facilities has equipped them with state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies for the rapid prototyping of electronic, 3D printed, fluidic and precision machined parts; Our Research and Innovation team performs highly skilled precision work in design, development, construction, assembly, and validation of a wide variety of scientific instruments and experimental equipment. You will collaborate with and assist scientists and other engineers with project specification, and translate concepts and ideas into prototypes and formally-designed laboratory equipment
Requirements: You will be an innovative thinker, able to demonstrate positive outcomes from the implementation of your ideas, and be able to provide new and creative solutions to problems. You take a collaborative approach to your work, and enjoy discussing complex, multidisciplinary projects and assignments with scientists and fellow engineers. An experienced mechatronics engineer, you will have a range of technical skills, including experience with mechanical CAD, numerical modelling of mechanical systems, microcontroller and single board computer based system development, and extensive experience with sensors and actuators
