Job Description: 

Mathematical Physicist
Seeking a mathematician, physicist, or engineer comfortable with the fundamental analysis of physical systems. Requires the ability to quickly learn the basic phenomena of a physical system (e.g. electrical, mechanical, acoustic etc) and reduce the system effectively to a mathematical/analytical representation that allows for detailed understanding. This can either be from first principles, or via adaptation of existing work to the specifics of the company. Further, the
candidate will be able to use this representation to quickly demonstrate key behavioural characteristics of the system, and make statements as to the general effect of changes and assist in the optimization of the system for device needs. Candidate must be competent in programming the developed analytical representation into an efficient software format and presenting results.
