  • Automatic inclusion in a defined benefit pension scheme
  • The opportunity to register for a higher degree for which tuition fees will be waived
  • Reviews and bonus based rewards will be assessed as the project progresses.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups

For non-EU applicants, we are unlikely to be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job (unless you are switching from a UK student visa), so you should only apply if you already have unrestricted permission to work in the UK.
