As part of the £50 million Space Programme launched recently at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), the Space team will be expanding. A number of roles are available, which offer a chance to deliver high-impact science and technology for the defence and security of the UK.

Working as part of a team you will contribute to, and lead, space-related research activities within Dstl’s Space Programme. You will also work with our international partners and suppliers to ensure Ministry of Defence (MOD) stakeholders are able to make informed decisions.

This could be as a military satellite communications expert, which would include giving advice to MOD staff working in the field, conducting research activities or advising on the future technologies that will drive advances in military satellite communication systems.

An opportunity is also available to work as a spacecraft scientist or engineer, which would require you to conduct research and give expert advice on satellite design, subsystem integration and help MOD develop its approaches to operating future satellite constellations.

Roles for recent graduates are also available within the space team, which sits under the umbrella of Cyber and Information Systems division. If you have a degree or postgraduate qualification in Physics, Maths, Aeronautical or Astronautical Engineering, Electronic or Electrical Engineering or Systems Engineering then this could be the role for you.

Michael O’Callaghan, who leads Dstl’s Space Programme, is keen to attract the best candidates. He said:


These are some really exciting opportunities and it’s exactly the right time to be involved. Dstl’s Space Programme continues to grow in recognition of its importance in answering some of defence’s most pressing questions. Many people grow up dreaming of working in this area, and this is the chance to do exactly that across a very diverse space portfolio from tracking objects in space, to helping develop future demonstrator missions.
