Junior Scientist

At S[&]T we are specialized in R&D solutions for space, science, and defence. We live and breathe innovation, and are one of the few partners that work together with High Tech organizations in optimizing performance through projects on-site or in-house at S[&]T.  

We are currently looking for a Junior Scientist located in Groningen together with our client in the research and development industry.

Your role

As Junior Scientist specialising in large scale software system engineering you have a fascination for (information) technology and you want to learn about new technologies and related issues. Soon after you start, you will be actively participating in project teams that are working on innovations in large scale, distributed IT. Often, such projects are in collaboration with external partners.

With a good software engineering background, you have an affinity to think of solutions from a software prototyping perspective. You are excited to work on multiple projects, simultaneously, and with colleagues from your own department and/or from another department. As a result, you have very good social skills to interact and collaborate with your colleagues and/or customers.

You are comfortable in working in an applied research environment – you explore and determine theoretically the solution to a current or future problem in an innovative manner and then you realise this practically in the form of a proof of concept or demonstrator.

Your profile

We are looking for a Junior Scientist with excellent communication skills and capable of explaining complex software architectures and implementations. Ideally, you are someone with a proactive attitude in seeking new challenges and can work in a co-operative, international environment.

Furthermore, you have the following:

  • You have a Ph.D. or M.Sc. degree in Computer Science;
  • You enjoy the challenge of both researching, designing and realising distributed IT systems, and has experience with this;
  • You have a real passion for software engineering, not limiting to just coding but also concerning the architecture and the process;
  • You are confident programming skills (any or some of Java, Python, Scala, Go, Rust, etc.) and an eagerness to learning new ones;
  • Preferably, you have some experience with using AI platforms and libraries (like TensorFlow, PyTorch, etc.);
  • Preferably, you are comfortable with development environments and tools (like Linux, Git, Eclipse or VSCode or PyCharm or IntelliJ, etc.).
