On behalf of our client, we are looking for an Electronics Engineer- Radiation Effects to join them on an initial 6-month contract. They are looking for highly skilled Electronic Engineers to work on the analysis and review of electronic circuits within the unit analysis team and/or design of test solutions.

Role: Electronics Engineer- Radiation Effects
Pay: Up to £60ph via Umbrella
Location: Bristol, fully onsite with potential of 1 day WFH.
Contract: 6 months
IR35 Status: Inside
Security Clearance: SC Clearance, UK eyes only.


The objective of the unit analysis team is to determine the performance degradation and behaviour of given circuits after exposure to the specified prompt dose radiation and the objective of the H/W team is to design and build the test solutions. It is not expected that the engineer will understand the effects of radiation on electronic circuits, as this is specialist knowledge and will be taught in-situ by the experienced unit analysis team.
However, the engineer should have in-depth electronic circuit design knowledge, which will allow them to reverse engineer electronic schematics to fully understand the design operation and failure modes across a wide range of equipment types.

The engineer will also be responsible for providing independent review of supplier unit analysis.

Skillset/experience required:

  • To work within the Unit analysis team, the engineer should be able to design and analyse circuits down to first principles to understand the circuit behaviour and failure modes – e.g calculating the gain of an amplifier, being able to express the transfer function of a transistor to input/output bias currents, calculate RC time constants etc.
  • Experience with analogue circuit design or power supply experience would be a plus.
  • To work within the H/W team it is expected that the engineer should have substantial analogue and digital circuit design experience and preferably experience in PCB layout/prototyping.
  • Ideally degree qualified with significant post qualification in Electronic Design, development and delivery.
  • Someone who can demonstrate the capability to lead Electronic Design work packages and have experience working within a multi-disciplinary team.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and knowledge of a wide range of electronic technologies and products.
  • Strong communication skills both written and verbal, with the ability to influence and negotiate with stakeholders across the business.
