Participate in creating IT infrastructure that will support the next generation of scientific discovery, as part of the Cavendish Laboratory’s £300m Ray Dolby Centre project.

Joining a local IT Services group of 13 people consisting of Infrastructure, Help Desk and Audiovisual teams, you will become a member of the 6-person Infrastructure team as a Windows platform developer, a role with a clearly-defined set of project achievements for you to contribute to and add to your career history as part of a larger strategic digital transformation plan.

You will share responsibility for maintaining and improving our existing Windows server and application infrastructure, how these systems run within our environment, and how they develop as we migrate towards more cloud-based services such as AWS and Azure.

You are likely to have significant experience with Windows Server, Active Directory, Group Policy, Windows image deployment, networking, virtualisation, SharePoint development, and security as part of these technologies, with an ability to develop scripts and software solutions to meet these needs.

The nature of the role means some work onsite will be required, but overall the pattern of work is expected to be hybrid, subject to individual preferences.

In return for your commitment to us, you would be joining a supportive department with an active commitment to building community, diversity and growth with flexible working practises, wellbeing initiatives and personal and professional development opportunities. The Department of Physics currently holds an Athena SWAN Gold Award.
