Graduate Programmes

We offer internships, graduate schemes and post-doctoral research projects and are keen to help students and graduates develop their skill set and career. As well as a competitive salary, our undergraduate and graduate programmes provide opportunities to learn about all aspects of the industrial environment.

At nquiringminds self-motivation and autonomous working are as important as the ability to work well in a team. A positive can-do attitude and the ability and desire to pick up new skills quickly are more important than age, academic qualifications or ticking off the ideal skills list. Pay will be commensurate with experience. We work in a very fast paced environment and can offer the right candidate fantastic opportunities to work with cutting edge technologies and a flexible working environment.

To apply for any of these programmes please email a copy of your CV and a covering letter to info@nquiringminds.com.

Summer Internships

 

We offer summer internships, of a flexible length, to under graduate students. Applicants for these positions will ideally be studying computer science or engineering. However applicants from other disciplines, particularly mathematics and physics are encouraged to apply.

Generally interns will be assigned a specific project tailored to their interests and skill sets, but should also be prepared to context switch as required. Examples of projects completed by interns in the past include:
 

  • Web tool for analysis of business rates
  • Research into high speed data analyses and storage
  • IoT sensor suite for deployment in homes
  • IoT sensor suite for deployment in agriculture

Graduate Training Programme

 

nquiringminds offer a graduate training programme designed to provide graduates with experience that will help them thrive in the work place. In addition to developing engineering skills, graduates will learn about the state of the art in industry and have opportunities to travel.

We understand that each graduate that joins nquiringminds is unique and that career aspirations can vary enormously, as such we aim to play to your strengths while providing mentoring to help you remove roadblocks to success.

Upon joining nquiringminds you will be given a complete introduction to our hardware and software stack as well as being assigned a personal mentor. Regular meetings and code reviews will provide you with the opportunity to improve quickly as well as gaining experience of working in small teams and individually.

Post Doctoral Research

 


At nquiringminds we have a strong relationship with the University of Southampton and are happy to consider sponsoring post doctoral research in relevant fields. Currently we have ongoing research in the areas of ultrasonics, crytography and machine learning.

As with our graduate programme we aim to help candidates develop both their engineering skills and industry knowledge. Opportunities to travel are available as well as regular exposure to state of the art technologies and practices.

Situated on the University of Southampton’s Chilworth Science Park, nquiringminds are well placed for PhD students splitting their time between the University and an industrial placement.
