What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

1. Be prepared to use fundamental physics - you will be expected to remember/relearn it quickly and offer suggestions based on your calculations/reading.

Do you have any interview tips?

1. Read about the company and the people they work for (the types of activities they do etc.) Be aware of what is going on in the the world of research generally, too.
2. If you are unsure of or can't remember an answer, be honest and try to explain your thought process as much as possible - the interviewers can then give you more information regarding what they want from you. If you don't speak it is difficult to know what the problem is.
3. Smile and try and keep your tone conversational. It is important you are willing to ask questions and discuss answers in your job, so show this skill in your interview!
