Job Title - Senior Aerodynamicist

Our client, widely regarded as one of the most successful teams within F1 are looking to employ a full time Senior Aerodynamicist based in Bicester, Oxfordshire. You will receive a basic salary of up to £70,000 with an excellent benefits package and unrivalled career prospects.

The Role

Working as part of the Aerodynamic Development group, you will be involved in the aerodynamic concept generation, design, development, characterisation and assessment of key components on the race car. This will involve the use of semiempirical, CFD, wind tunnel testing methods and in some circumstances on-track testing.

Reporting to and working closely with a highly successful and well experienced Team Leader within the company, you will be defining the best development strategies, based on directions and performance targets. You will prepare, supervise and execute aerodynamic test and development programs from concept formation to finished racecar design, regularly working with both CFD, wind tunnels and other tools to develop components from initial idea to finished design.

You will provide mentoring support to existing Aerodynamicists and Junior Aerodynamicists conducting regular wind tunnel testing and reporting of results.

You will liaise and work closely with the companies Design Office based in Italy and Concept Group here in the UK.

The Person:

To compliment your solid relevant working experience as a Senior Aerodynamicist, you will have an in-depth technical appreciation of semi-empirical, CFD and wind tunnel test techniques and have a strong aerodynamic academic background of minimum degree level. You will have a strong team-player attitude and the ability to work under pressure and minimal supervision. You will have the capacity to lead a project, solve complex problems and achieve performance targets within strict deadlines.
