The Role
An exciting opportunity has arisen with a world class technology company based in Bristol, who is looking for an Aerodynamics Engineer to join their small but very talented team.

The Aerodynamics Engineer will initially be working on a key technology project, but with further opportunities to work and influence a large number of products, concepts and research. Within this role you would find yourself at the forefront of aerodynamics and be a member of a team delivering innovative solutions in a wide range of products, both in service and in development.

Working as part of the aerodynamics team, the Aerodynamics Engineer will be involved in the aerodynamic design, characterisation and assessment of airframes. This will involve the use of semi-empirical, CFD and wind tunnel testing methods for aerodynamic simulation as well as a suite of performance analysis tools. These activities will cover free-flight and propulsion system installation aspects, as well as the challenges posed by systems integration in to larger platforms.

You will be joining a team of approximately thirty engineers who form a world class aerodynamic design capability. This team have a broad range of niche and multi-disciplinary skills and are involved in a wide range of activities, providing opportunities for working on and influencing a large product portfolio, from the initial research and concept phase, through maturation and development, and into in-service support. Access to these wide ranging opportunities is open to all team members to broaden their skills and enhance their personal development.

*You will work closely with other disciplines within the business, such as mechanical design and guidance, navigation and control, as well as external organisations, wind tunnel providers and universities.
*As such this role is likely to involve some travel within the UK to liaise with these disciplines and organisations.

What are we looking for?
*A doctorate, or first/second class honours degree in an aerodynamic or related subjects and solid relevant working experience
*Extensive experience of semi-empirical, CFD and wind tunnel test techniques, ideally focussed on high-speed aerodynamics
*A desire to get involved in innovative research and proven record of delivering results to time, cost and quality.
