Job Details

Job reference number: UOS034115

Faculty: Advanced Manufacturing Group

Department: NAMRC – Modules

Location: Birchwood Technology Park facility

Salary: Grade 7 £35,333 to £43,414 per annum, with potential to progress to £47,423 per annum through sustained exceptional contribution.

Closing date: 11 September 2022.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Senior Research Engineer to join the Nuclear AMRC Modules group at the Birchwood Technology Park facility.

As a Senior Research Engineer, you will be part of projects and programmes that range in scale and duration, but will all focus on developing and demonstrating robust and world-leading methods of modular manufacture and construction; that will be taken from the drawing board and embedded into an industry partner site. You will be supporting an integrated project team, built specifically to meet the requirements of the project/programmes you are working to deliver. You will be in an environment where you will be required to use your creative thinking skills, combining the development of research and technology theories, and applied manufacturing/construction solutions in a non-production environment.

You will have:

• A relevant Engineering degree or similar, or equivalent experience.

• Experience as a design or manufacturing engineer with a portfolio demonstrating project delivery (you will be required to provide this portfolio at the interview).

• Experience of using Computer Added Engineering (CAE) tools.

• Ability to continuously monitor and check results, adjusting plans regularly to accommodate changing requirements.

As Senior Research Engineer reporting into the Modules Team Lead, you will play a key role within the centre contributing to the mission and vision as part of the technical team at an exciting time in this new facility. This will involve you working closely with technical leads, professional and motivated engineers in a supportive team environment. You will also have opportunities to interact with members and clients to support the delivery of world-leading manufacturing and construction processes and technologies.
