We are looking for curious graduates who are passionate about aerodynamics to join our Department, working on the development of our Formula One cars.

Key accountabilities / duties include:

You will work collaboratively as part of a small team, applying your thoughtful and curious nature to stimulating challenges relating to aerodynamic development.

By interpreting trends and developing our understanding, you will create innovative engineering solutions to real problems. As a valued member of our Aerodynamics Department, your ideas and skills will make a tangible contribution to the Team, both on and off the track.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing aerodynamic concepts
  • Interpreting trends, for example from our state-of-the-art CFD and wind tunnel facilities
  • Improving our understanding of flow structures
  • Collaborating to create innovative solutions
  • Enhancing the tools you and your colleagues use to find performance
  • Surfacing and design of components
  • Meshing and post-processing CFD
  • Planning and running test programmes

Supported and mentored by knowledgeable engineers, you will see your skills develop. Immersed in a culture of empowerment and fresh thinking, you will build the foundation for a successful career in your chosen specialism.

This position is office-based, at our campus in Brackley, United Kingdom.

Candidate profile:

You have a passion for aerodynamics and are excited about the opportunity to apply your skills to stimulating projects. A prior interest in motorsport is not required: we are more interested in your potential to apply your aerodynamic skills and understanding to practical engineering challenges.

Your commitment and diligence have yielded good university results: you have either completed, or this calendar year will be completing, a relevant course of undergraduate or post-graduate study, and you have a good appreciation of undergraduate-level aerodynamics.

With an open and honest communication style and a broad overview of your subject, you relish collaborating in a team setting and enjoy discussing technical concepts. You are equally comfortable working on your own, applying your reflective nature, interpretive skills, attention to detail and dependable judgment to understand complicated engineering problems then propose and evaluate viable solutions in a timely fashion. Looking to fulfil your potential, you are excited about constantly learning while fostering the understanding of others.
