We are seeking an exceptional Research Associate to work on cryogenic propulsion systems for aerospace as part of a programme funded by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA).

Hydrogen-powered aircraft are gaining momentum because they can achieve zero carbon emissions in flight. Liquid hydrogen can also create a cryogenic environment within the propulsion system. Cryogenic propulsion systems have great potential to achieve high-power density and high efficiency. You will have an opportunity to design and test cryogenic propulsion components and systems for aerospace. You will develop new tools and techniques that can be used with confidence to design and scale cryogenic propulsion systems for the aviation sector. You will demonstrate the safe and efficient use of hydrogen as a fuel in the aviation sector. 

About you:

Our ideal candidate will be:

  • Educated to PhD level (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering or relevant areas
  • Able to communicate and work collaboratively with the academic and industrial partners
  • Experienced in design and testing of high-power power electronics converters and motor drive systems
  • Knowledgeable about electromagnetic design, thermal design, heat transfer, PCB design and mechanical design

You will have the attributes to develop into a kind and culturally aware leader who fosters an environment where every individual is valued and respected, regardless of their background or identity. You will proactively seek out diverse perspectives, recognizing the richness and creativity this brings to decision-making and problem-solving. You will remain optimistic in the face of challenges, seeing them as opportunities for growth and innovation. You will understand that change is inevitable and necessary, actively encouraging those around you to adapt and evolve. By promoting a culture of openness and inclusivity, coupled with a willingness to listen as well as a readiness to embrace change, you will contribute profoundly to a dynamic and empowered team that can thrive in today's rapidly changing world.
