​In order to do physics experiments on our high powered lasers, we often need a suitable target for them to hit.

At the CLF, we have an in-house group of people who prepare targets for our experiments. This talented group works with nanoscale materials such as foils and low density foams to create targets for world-class experiments. 

​Upon starting the job, you'll be supported by the target fabrication team who will give you training on how to construct our bespoke laser targets.​

As part of this job, you'll benefit from meeting the many scientists who visit for experiments, as well as work closely with our friendly permanent​ staff. Due to your contributions, your name may be included on scientific papers.

​Your role, whichever one you pick:

Upon starting the job, you'll receive support from management and peers to learn the ins-and-outs of scientific lasers, as well as many opportunities for extra training in areas such as science, communication, management and writing.​
