Company: Jacobs
Skills: IT - Programming & Database, Physicist
Education: High School/Secondary
Employment Type: Full Time Salaried Employee
Location: Dorchester, England, United Kingdom


Jacobs is currently recruiting for a Mathematician, Probablist or Statistician with demonstrable experience in the design & implementation of complex mathematical and statistical algorithms primarily for the Monte Carlo simulation of radiation transport and the quantification of uncertainty in the results of complex nuclear modelling calculations. Experience of a direct interface with existing clients & the international R&D community, as well as the generation of new business would be an advantage. Strong software skills in a variety of languages including Python, Java and Fortran would also be useful for algorithm implementation.

This role will present excellent opportunities for the continual development of skills and experience in mathematics, probability and statistics, particularly where these are applied to nuclear engineering; also, the potential to lead technical developments and collaborations, and to manage the team responsible for their implementation.

Qualifications:
 

  • An undergraduate degree in mathematics, physics or engineering or any other subject with a strong mathematical component
  • Experience of Monte Carlo and/or deterministic methods for solving the Boltzmann transport equation
  • A strong background in probability, statistical or mathematical theory and implementation
  • Programming skills in languages such as Fortran, Python or Java
  • Ability to think innovatively and to solve complex problems
  • Ability to quickly and efficiently absorb new technical skills rather than just applying current ones
  • Ability to communicate well, both verbally and in writing with internal and external experts and customers
  • Self-motivated, with an ability and desire to work collaboratively with other organisations to create new opportunities
