We are a small engineering simulation consultancy firm based in Cambridge. We specialise in the provision of engineering simulation services to clients based predominantly in the UK. We are currently working with companies like Pepsico, Anglo American, Westinghouse and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, supporting projects that involve structural mechanics, heat transfer, fluid flow, and chemical reactions (amongst others). In many cases the projects that we tackle involve strongly coupled physical phenomena.
We are now seeking to appoint an additional consultant to help support our plans for growth.
About the Role
You will be joining a small team of busy people which means that you must be able to operate (almost) autonomously from the start of your appointment. You will be responsible for delivering technical work in a range of subject areas, and you will be comfortable with stress analysis, heat transfer and fluid mechanics (and an expert in at least one). You will also be responsible for identifying and generating new opportunities, and for supporting your colleagues with tenders, proposals, grant applications and reports. You will be required to meet with existing clients and potential new ones, and to engage in high-level technical discussions.
You must have a first class or upper second class degree in one of the following subjects - Materials Science, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Maths. A PhD in a related area would be beneficial, but is not essential. The preferred candidate is likely to have had at least 3 years of experience using COMSOL Multiphysics, or a similar level of experience using a comparable software package such as ABAQUS, ANSYS, ROCKY DEM, LAMMPS, LIGGGHTS or OpenFoam (and Paraview for post-processing). Some experience with high performance computing (HPC) would be beneficial, coding skills (python, C++, Java) would be advantageous, and prior experience in a technical consulting role would also be preferable. Excellent communication skills are essential.
The role holder would ideally be located in (or near to) Cambridge (and should also hold a clean UK driving licence), but exceptional candidates from further afield (working remotely) will also be considered. Under the right circumstances the role could be occupied on a part-time basis if preferable. Working from home arrangements could also be supported (depending on your level of experience).
Salary + Benefits
The salary is negotiable, dependent on your level of experience, and annually reviewed. A performance-related bonus scheme is also available.
How to apply
Email your CV and a covering letter to . Interviews will be held in early 2019 (in Cambridge).
We are an equal opportunity employer, and believe strongly in diversity and inclusivity. If we can support you in your application by accommodating any special needs, then please let us know.
