Technology and Computing

If you want to play an integral role in harnessing the power of some of the country’s most advanced supercomputers to help solve the challenges that face the planet today, this is the place to do it.

The Hartree Centre, Daresbury Laboratory and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory are at heart of the UK’s ability to make world-changing scientific breakthroughs. Our cutting-edge supercomputing services are helping the UK to design better batteries, make breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence and in energy storage and supply, and to improve drug design. That’s not to mention the crucial role we are playing in the search for a better understanding of the COVID-19 virus and for the vaccine that will help us fight it.

If you join us, you will be part of a community whose expertise encompasses areas such as magnet and materials technology, cryogenics, energy technologies, electronics, detector design and installation, microelectronics and nanotechnology.

This expertise is central to the design and delivery of much of what we do, especially given the vast amounts of data collected in our experiments and projects. Researchers and businesses from all over the world also turn to our computing power and knowhow. By joining us in a computing role, you’ll become part of a team that is working with the very latest technologies – and driving advances in both hardware and software. Advances that have genuine real-world, and world-changing, applications.

“I really enjoy the technical nature of my work at STFC. It offers the chance to work with the latest computing technology and the opportunity to contribute to projects with national and international impact. STFC also offer flexible working, which I’ve found invaluable when juggling parenting commitments and full-time employment.”
