Bruker Coorporation’s companies belong to the world’s leading analytical and measuring instrumentation

manufacturers in the sector of life sciences. For the last 60 years Bruker has been fulfilling one single purpose: to

deliver the best technological solution. Today, more than 7,000 employees worldwide are working on this

challenge, in over 90 locations in all continents.

Bruker BioSpin, as part of the Bruker Group, is a high-tech international company and the world-leading manufacturer of comprehensive solutions in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and Preclinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). We develop high-tech analytical measuring instruments and methods that are used in many fields, from medical technology to materials science and food research.



The function of the Electro-Mechanical Engineer is to provide expert hands-on technical expertise in mechanical and electro-mechanical engineering as part of installation, commissioning, basic customer training and application support, maintenance, fault-finding and customer support in respect of the company’s products whilst generating sustainable and profitable growth for the product range.


The primary objective is to be an efficient and effective member of the Service and Lifecycle Support team in delivering highly competent, effective and focussed engineering and technical support to the customer base. Focussed objectives are to support the installation and commissioning of superconducting magnets and complete spectrometer systems in customers’ laboratories by undertaking the associated electro-mechanical work to a very high standard and to be involved with the organisation and execution of a cost-effective liquid helium magnet refilling service at customers’ sites.



Working as a member of the Service Team involved in the installation, modification, troubleshooting, repair and preventative maintenance, service, and technical support of our range of instrumentation, duties will include:

  • familiarisation with specific instrumentation prior to installation from issued documentation and/or participation in the final testing process in the factory
  • liaise with customers and colleagues in the site planning process prior to installation
  • inspect, install, set up, test and achieve specifications of systems and accessories at customers’ sites, and deliver operator training, application and maintenance
  • provide technical support and assistance to customers and to colleagues, either directly or by remote diagnosis
  • positioning equipment in customers’ laboratories
  • assembly and positioning of specialised lifting and handling apparatus
  • precision mechanical assembly of superconducting magnets and large instrumentation
  • further commissioning of superconducting magnets including charging and discharging the magnetic field
  • mechanical and electrical/electronic assembly of instrument racks
  • responsibility for and maintenance of specialist lifting equipment, power supplies and vacuum pumping rigs.
  • maintenance of superconducting magnets, including refilling of cryogenic liquids at customers’ sites throughout the UK as part of a regular schedule


Activities will cover all products manufactured or represented by the Company. Specialism in certain products, technologies or ranges may form an additional responsibility that will make use of acquired skills and experience. Duties will be carried out mainly in the UK and Ireland but can include working abroad, with a frequent requirement to provide field service support on customers’ premises.


The position reports to the Customer Success and Site Planning Manager, who will agree expectations, offer guidance as necessary and provide framework support.  Accurate record keeping and timely submission of documentation is pre-requisite.



Your normal place of work is described as working from home. However, you are required to attend Head Office on regular occasions for training, team meetings etc.



To carry out the duties to the level expected, the minimum competencies are:


  • outgoing and good at building relationships through inspiring trust and confidence
  • a professional image and a very high standard of personal presentation
  • self-motivation, initiative and a willingness to work with others toward a shared goal
  • the ability to contribute to a team effort, yet to accept responsibility for an individual role within the team
  • excel at continual learning in a rapidly advancing technological area.


  • a recognised academic or technical qualification in an engineering discipline or have served a recognised apprenticeship
  • a solid technical or scientific background gained in industry or academia
  • a current driving licence valid in the UK
  • no visa or other restriction preventing travel in the USA or EU.

Skills and Experience

  • the capacity to take responsibility for the complete installation and commissioning of sophisticated instrumentation and to instruct users in its basic operation
  • ability to diagnose causes of malfunction and to actively resolve customers’ service problems
  • good computer literacy, including familiarity with data system hardware and industry standard operating systems
  • the ability to communicate effectively at all levels with good spoken and written English.


Due to the nature of the role, working hours can be irregular and extensive travel in the UK and occasionally abroad is an essential part of the job.
