Mechatronics Engineer

Location: Cambridgeshire, England
Job Type: Vaste Termijn
Specialisation: Bouw
Salary: Negotiable
Reference: BBBH2265_1636645498
Contact: Chris Wethered

We are looking for an experienced Mechanical engineer to develop complete mechanical solutions for future cloud infrastructure working alongside world-leading researchers and engineers. The team is multi-disciplinary, comprising optics, software and electronics experts with a collaborative and agile atmosphere. This an offsite role with reporting to a Cambridge, Cambridgeshire site.

A specific and ongoing deliverable will be to update the existing Solidworks models of our experimental rigs to ensure their completeness and accuracy, and periodically to compare the models against the actual state of the rigs, adjusting the models where necessary to that their completeness and accuracy is preserved.

Required:

*Micron level precision, micron level positioning and alignment.
*Demonstrable expertise using CAD software (preferably Solidworks)
*Hands-on experience with methods of fabrication to include machining and 3D printing.
*Experience working with 3rd party suppliers of high-precision, low-volume, custom-designed parts.
*Confidence communicating with colleagues from multi-disciplinary backgrounds across optics and instrument design to understand and present design goals and constraints.

Desirable:

*Significant experience in the design and implementation of systems requiring sub-micrometre accuracy and alignment.
*Experience mitigating vibrations to achieve micron-scale stability over hours-long run times.
*Experience designing parts to mitigate against long-term mechanical drift.
*Confidence to work independently to characterise performance of mechanical and optomechanical modules prior to integration into larger research instruments.
*Experience using version management tools (preferably Solidworks PDM)
*Familiarity with optical systems including free space optics, waveguide/fibre optics, monolithic optical design.
*Hands-on experience with a desktop 5-axis CNC mill.
*Precision motion/alignment
*Thermal analysis
*Design for Manufacture
*Electronics
*Simulation tools (preferably Ansys)
