We thrive on diversity and creating an inclusive culture, with more than 50 nationalities currently working hard to bring our vision of a sustainable world to life.

The Role:

We are looking for an outstanding analysis engineer with a strong background in topology optimization, stress, fatigue, structural dynamics and crash and impact to support the Research & Technology Team pushing the boundaries with agile and fast iterating concept design and pre-development activities for the next generation Propulsion System.

In this position, you will have the exciting opportunity to work within the rapidly growing Structural Analysis Team. You will report to the Team Lead – Stress, through the function, working as part of the Structural Analysis Department. You will also be part of the Research and Technology Team for the Propulsion System.

Your Day to Day:

Being part of the R&T Team you will be leading:

  • Agile and fast iterating concept evaluation and design improvements based on topology optimization and structural analysis.
  • Optimization, pre-sizing, stress and crash and impact analysis of structural components and their interfaces related to the rotating, non-rotating components, and propulsion structures.
  • Create, manage, adjust, and validate detailed FE models of sub-components and complete propulsion system structures and their installations, with responsibility for the full workflow of numerical modelling, solving and post-processing.
  • Model correlation with static and dynamic test data to drive analysis-based concept decisions and design optimizations
  • Actively define and develop modelling methods, tools and optimization techniques to support an efficient product pre-/development
