The Role

Role Description

The job is about solving technical problems, seeks to reduce variability and improve efficiency. As it is within a Laboratory or Industrial environment the role is challenging as it calls for use of a range of techniques to solve complex problems, where few precedents may exist. It requires the development of a broad knowledge and application of numerous instrumentation systems, including sensors, signal conditioning and processing. A general knowledge of relevant technical and non-technical disciplines outside area of expertise must be developed to cope with measurement, control, automotive, and mechanical systems related to test installations. This helps in evaluating and optimizing procedures.
