Associate Principal Mechanical Engineer - Motors Research Malmesbury Highly Competitive and Great Company Benefits!

Join an incredible company that was founded nearly 30 years ago by 1 man and an inventive mind. Fast forward to today and this Global company with thousands of employees still hold that family run ethos and steer away from conventional thinking.

Support the Motors & Power Systems Research Team in the evolution of new and existing products, specifically taking a leading role in the mechanical engineering of our high-speed electric motors. The Associate Principal Mechanical Research Engineer will be expected to take a proactive approach in identifying and evaluating new opportunities across a spectrum of areas particularly focusing on advancements in the mechanical design of high-speed turbomachinery. The role would entail championing the best engineering practices to support the wider teams core activities whilst also developing research strategies to guide the future direction of my clients' motors.

The Role

Play a key role in the design and optimisation of both the preliminary and the detailed stages of new motor systems, focusing on achieving robust mechanical solutions considering mass manufacturing.

Develop new technologies and understanding in the mechanical design of turbomachinery generating high-value IP concepts enabling the next generation of motors.

Point of technical expertise within the team reviewing and supporting engineers as required.

Develop and champion accurate, in-depth simulation techniques both within the research team and the wider Motors group with an appreciation of the experimental validation programme.

Champion high quality design of experiments using a six-sigma approach.

Ability to summarise key findings and communicate to other members of RDD including senior managers and directors.

Liaise with development teams to ensure effective transfer of technology into the future product range.

Mentoring of engineers, students and external research projects in the best practise in the mechanical design of turbomachinery in both new product categories and next generation of my clients digital motors.

The Requirements

A degree (2:1 or higher) in Mechanical Engineering, or other relevant engineering discipline.

An excellent working knowledge and experience in the design and integration of turbomachinery covering a broad aspect of disciplines (mechanical, aerodynamics, electric motor design).

Strong understanding of aerothermal modelling and electric motor excitations would be beneficial.

Experience in the use of Finite Element Modelling in relation to the dynamics of rotating machinery, structural analysis, fatigue/fracture, shock/impact, non-linear materials, etc.

Awareness and capability of guiding experimental validation programmes.

Capable of performing analytical calculations to support higher fidelity work packages.

Excellent knowledge of mechanical systems within turbomachinery covering bearing technologies, balancing methods, transmissions, failure mechanisms and associated root cause analysis techniques.

Methodical approach to analysing and presenting simulation and test data.

Experience in mentoring team members in the best practise of engineering would be an advantage.
