Wood is recruiting for a Materials Testing Technician who has experience of performing Fracture Toughness tests. The successful candidate will join the Materials Testing team and will be based at our Birchwood Park office, near Warrington in Cheshire.

These tests include operation at elevated and sub-ambient temperatures, operation in a radiation environment on active specimens and testing in environmental chambers. The operation of peripheral equipment, analysis of data and some interpretation of results are also required. You will be expected to contribute to developing the testing techniques used in the laboratory.
