WMG is looking to recruit an experienced Principal Engineer to work as part of WMG’s Intelligent Vehicles research group. You will take technical responsibility for the delivery of projects on connected and autonomous vehicles, delivering highly innovative research and valuable outcomes to our industrial partners.

Our research in Intelligent Vehicles is underpinned by a key facility: a drive-in, driver-in-the-loop multi-axis simulator. The simulator has a world-leading capability to fully emulate the external environment that a vehicle would encounter on road, for repeatable testing and verification. Our intelligent vehicles research brings together several capability areas such as Complex Electrical Systems, Communications, Supply Chains and Cyber Security. This multidisciplinary approach enables us to understand the full scope of research challenges that will affect the practical implementation of this new technology and build research programmes with industrial partners to address real-world challenges

Supported by these world-leading research facilities, you will have knowledge of, and be able to lead projects working on topics such as sensor development and integration (e.g. LiDAR, RADAR, and optical), communications technology, testing, verification and validation, user-acceptance, applied computer science and electronic engineering.

In return we will provide you with a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
