Work for Us

"The work is varied and challenging, yet stimulating. I really enjoy being in charge of my own portfolio and developing its strategy. I am given a large sense of ownership towards my area and since it is quite a cross cutting portfolio it means that there is always something new to work on."

Maisie WongPortfolio Manager in Applied Mathematics

As the main UK government agency for funding research and training in the engineering and physical sciences, our vision is for the UK to be the most dynamic and stimulating environment in which to engage in science research and innovation. Our research saves lives, creates economic prosperity and fuels long-term growth. To help us achieve our vision, we need the best people. We employ engineers and scientists from multiple disciplines including mathematics, material sciences, bioenergy and healthcare technologies. These are supported by a wide range of non-scientific staff from accountants to events managers, computer technicians and placement students.
