      Would you like to work within a varied and interesting role supporting a wide range of products for both defence and commercial sectors? We currently have a vacancy for a Materials Scientist/Metallurgist at our site in Great Baddow, Essex.

      As a Materials Scientist/Metallurgist, you will be working as part of a multidiscipline team within the Product Assurance Response Centre (PARC). PARC’s activities include the provision of rapid technical troubleshooting services relating to components, production and processes, and ‘green issues’. This will be working across a broad range of industrial operations including avionics, sensors, shipbuilding, aircraft manufacture, sonar systems, radar and energetic materials.

      This role will provide you with the chance to develop your skills within materials science where every day is different. You will gain exposure to cutting edge technology as well as excellent career development opportunities.

      Your main responsibilities as a Materials Scientist/Metallurgist will involve:

      Providing rapid troubleshooting and failure analysis service relating to components, production and processes

      Ensuring high performance, quality, value, and competitiveness throughout BAE Systems

      Using test and analytical equipment to ensure problems are solved in a timely fashion, supporting colleagues on metallographic enquiries.

      Preparing technical reports, test procedures, process specifications and other product documentation

      Liaising with both internal and external customers, including travel and visits to other business units as part of the rapid troubleshooting service

      Your skills and qualifications as a Materials Scientist/Metallurgist:


      Degree level qualification (or equivalent with experience) in Materials Science or Metallurgy

      Experienced in mechanical testing/ failure analysis of metals

      Demonstrable experience in industry

      Ability to use Microsoft Office suite (particularly Word and Excel)

      Accurate and concise report writing skills


      Membership of a recognised technical institution would be advantageous

      Knowledge of materials properties, selection, processing and testing, ideally encompassing metals, polymers, ceramics and composites, adhesives and surface finishes and coatings

      Knowledge of modern analytical techniques e.g. Tensile testing, material / sample preparation, SEM / EDX, XRF, 3D X-Ray/ CT, DSC/TGA, FTIR (EGA), TMA, DMA, , NDT techniques etc.

      What we're looking for in you:

      You must be able to work using your own initiative, with the ability to multi-task and manage your own workload. You will also possess a flexible and adaptable approach to enable you to take on enquiries that are not from your specific academic background.

      This post seems to be quite old, but I have a BS in Physics and I am learning more about CFD, FEA, and simulation analysis techniques right now through certificate programs online. I have used SEM before and CVD years ago when I was getting my Nanoscale Materials Technology Associates Degree. I have a strong knowledge of chemistry as well and love learning about new materials in science. BAE Systems I know to be a great company and I would be willing to relocate to the UK if I saw a future career path laid out for me with BAE Systems. My number is 5183966919 so give me a shout if this position or other applicable positions are still available. Thank you so much and look forward to talking to you.
