About the Role

We are currently seeking a highly motivated individual to oversee and spearhead essential experimental investigations within the realm of cryogenic aviation systems, with a focus on conducting tests involving liquid hydrogen. Involving developing protocols to ensure meticulous attention to health and safety standards while effectively managing associated risks. The successful candidate will scrutinize and leverage experimental data to derive meaningful correlations and theoretical frameworks, disseminating research outcomes proficiently to both internal stakeholders and external clients. Nurturing the professional advancement of budding researchers within our team is paramount, fostering a culture of growth and innovation. This role involves developing research proposals, securing funding, and publishing in high-quality journals aligned with the Centre and Group’s ambition.

About You

Candidates for this position should possess a degree in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, or energy engineering, complemented by a PhD in a closely relevant engineering discipline. A proven track record of successful research delivery is essential, ideally, backed by pertinent industrial experience. This experience should include executing risk assessments, adhering to health and safety procedures in labs and workshops, and conducting research or testing on cryogenic systems. Contributions to the development of new research proposals are highly valued. The ideal candidate will demonstrate the ability to work independently and as part of a team within the Centre, showcasing excellent communication and presentation skills, as well as strong problem-solving and project management abilities. Methodical, collaborative, and adaptable, they should maintain composure under pressure and exhibit resilience. Leadership skills, demonstrated through internships, volunteering and extracurricular activities, are crucial.
