Each subject has its own specialist team, which provides further opportunities for variety.

Core Activities - PhD Graduate (Systems)

  • Requirements capture, design documentation, verification and validation.

  • Algorithm design and test for signal processing, tracking, control & image processing

  • Performance modelling; building physics-based models to test our designs in silico.

  • Data analysis; end-to-end system analysis using synthetic and 'real world' data.

  • Applied research; from product improvements to blue-sky thinking.

Skills, Qualifications - PhD Graduate (Systems)

  • Minimum 2:1 in a STEM subject; Electrical Engineering, Physics and Mathematics preferred.

  • PhD students encouraged.

  • Must be able to obtain SC security check.

  • Experience in modelling and simulation, particularly Matlab/Simulink, and Machine Learning/Deep Learning/AI an advantage.

  • Excellent communication skills: verbal and written.
