Transitioning to a low-carbon energy system to meet the 2050 net zero target is one of the most complex and important challenges that humanity faces, transport use is currently one of the largest emitters of carbon dioxide, so the application of cutting-edge modelling tools to simulate the performance and impact of different transport technologies & designs is becoming increasingly important as the UK strives towards decarbonisation.
As the demand for our transport systems modelling & simulation expertise and services continues to grow, we have a brand-new opportunity to join our infrastructure & engineering team.
The team uses a variety of existing models, built in Python and Matlab, to assess multiple vehicle types, user behaviours and the associated infrastructure requirements and energy system impacts. The team is also in the process of developing new tools and enhancing existing ones, as we aim to support a broad range of organisations understand and integrate decarbonised transport systems.
We imagine you come from an engineering background and have gained some real-world technical experience within the automotive or wider transportation sector. Alternatively, you may come from an aligned engineering research background but are keen to apply that expertise outside of an academic environment.
Either way you are genuinely interested in applying your technical capabilities to use and develop our existing modelling tools. You will want to support a wide range of private and public sector organisations make innovation development and deployment decisions and guide policy and investment to accelerate the Net Zero transition.
It will be great if you have extensive experience of MATLAB and Python, but if not don’t rule yourself out, as experience with other software environments may also be applicable.
What is also important is that you enjoy and are effective working on a broad range of collaborative projects, enabling you to consult with internal teams and external parties, to translate needs and requirements into clear questions and proposals that can be investigated through modelling & simulation.
You will also be more than capable of developing clear and meaningful insights from the simulations and be able to communicate the findings in a creative and engaging way, via reports, presentations, and other engagement activities.
So, if you would like to work towards becoming a recognised Transport Systems Engineering expert in the energy space and in doing so have a real meaningful impact on the Energy Transition and the UK’s drive to hit Net Zero, then look no further - you may have just discovered the opportunity you were looking for.
We welcome applications from all, including those who may be returning to work, those wishing to work flexibly for any reason, and those who may need additional support.
Would you like to Apply?
The closing date for applications is Sunday 5th November 2023
