As an engineer in our mechanical team you will contribute to the mechanical design and thermal structural analysis including the development and execution of related testing of the product. With a core understanding of mechanical engineering you will develop the expertise required to ensure even in the harshest environments found in space the mission to deliver further scientific understanding of our universe or improved telecommunications is achieved.
• Performing the mechanical analysis, participating to the mechanical design and the testing plan/qualification sequence for the mechanical aspects.
• Defining the interfaces, in direct relation with the Program Management Office and other subsystems (Avionics, Electronics)
• Identifying the key drivers for the product competitiveness related to mechanical thermal aspects.
• Regular travel between Harwell and Bristol will be required along with occassional travel to our European facilities.
Skills, qualifications and experience
• Core background gained in mechanical engineering with exposure to solid works, CATIA and or Nastran Patran
• Understanding of thermal analysis would be highly beneficial
• Experience of mechanical design for use in extreme environmental situations
