An excellent opportunity for an MSc/ PhD science graduate (new or with some work experience) to join marine technology innovators who are making shipping more environmentally friendly by harnessing wind-power.
Data Analysis Engineer (MSc/PhD) – Aero / Hydrodynamics | Thrust & Performance Data
London or Southampton Based – Part Remote
£27,000 to £33,000 Plus Benefits Package
Who we are:
We are global leaders in Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion.
Our mission is to advance Flettner Rotor technology, accelerating its adoption across the world’s merchant fleet and proving it can work for a sustainable future of shipping.
Flettner Rotors harness power from the wind to help propel ships, enhancing vessel efficiency by decreasing fuel consumption, reducing bunker costs and lessening vessel emissions.
By combining this renewable energy technology with innovative engineering and a deep practical understanding of the shipping industry, we have developed Flettner Rotor systems that offer fuel-saving benefits to a range of vessel types and sizes, both as new-builds and as retrofits.
Where you come in:
Reporting to the Technical Director, we are currently recruiting for a strong scientific mind to analyse thrust and performance data for class and vessel performance validation.
Main Duties and Responsibilities:
+ Ensure that appropriate and valid data is gathered to perform meaningful analysis
+ Analyse thrust and performance data, both at the test site and on pilot vessels to prepare for class validation of thrust and later validation of vessel performance
+ Document results of analysis in a complete, clear and meaningful way
+ Assist in development of thrust verification tools in real time using pressure sensor and/or load measurement data
+ Assist in development of performance modelling and effects of Anemoi systems
+ Provide data and make recommendations to optimize rotor and control system design and operation parameters to maximise fuel savings
+ Master’s degree or PhD in Naval Architecture, Aeronautical Engineering, Physics or a relevant discipline covering fluid mechanics
+ Strong theoretical background in aero/hydrodynamic principles
+ Experience of aerodynamic and hydrodynamic data analysis
+ Experience of programming data analysis software e.g. Matlab
+ Either fresh graduate with some work experience as part of their degree, or graduate with 1-2 years’ experience
+ Experience using and interpreting CFD would be advantageous
+ Research experience
Personal Qualities and Competences:
+ Strong attention to detail
+ Methodical worker with self-checking approach
+ Clear written English
+ Able to explain complex information clearly and concisely
+ Able to understand and take into account others’ viewpoints and input
+ Understands importance of deadlines whilst preserving quality
+ 25 days’ holiday
+ Medical cover
+ Life assurance
+ Use of gym at London office
