Within a collaborative and fast-paced environment, you will have the chance to help drive the success of an ambitious project that has the potential to transform the aviation industry as we know it. 

The Role 

As a Thermal Modelling Engineer, you will lead battery development and design for the thermal considerations of our client’s new aircraft.  

In this important role, you will:  

- Design thermal systems with performance, complexity and/or development trade-offs  
- Complete thermal fault tree/safety analysis  
- Carry out requirements capture, decomposition and traceability 
- Help to develop the certification of the battery systems, primarily from a thermal position
