PAY RATE - £35.16 PAYE ph(including holiday)

Job Specification:

The role involves working within a research and technology project team looking at the application of data science techniques within the remit of landing gear systems.

About us:

We are a diverse, entrepreneurial and self-empowered team working in an exciting and dynamic environment delivering innovation to existing and future landing gear systems. The Landing Gear is a critical system highly integrated into the aircraft and encapsulates both primary structure and complex systems in a challenging operating environment. It offers a unique set of system, equipment and structure that consist of physical and functional design elements.

This position offers the opportunity to develop multidisciplinary skills by working on the following subjects:

  • LG structure architecture
  • LG equipment development
  • LG system architecture and design
  • Overall aircraft design
  • Loads & Performance
  • Wheels, Tyres & Brakes
  • Extension & Retraction
  • Monitoring
  • Braking, Steering & Control
  • Modelling & Simulation

What you will be doing:

  • Working within a team of systems engineers and data scientists, the successful candidate will be responsible for the delivery of technical solutions utilising systems engineering and data science methodologies.
    • Systems engineering refers to the architecting of high integrity systems or control system design.
    • Data science refers to work such as the building of integrated data sets, analysing data sources (ML/AI), and building compelling interactive visualisations (typically using Python, R, Spark).
  • Solutions will be developed against a set of project requirements and will be subject to technology readiness level (TRL) or development review criteria.
  • Identification, scoping and delivery of projects that are linked to the Corporate Technology Office (CTO) Roadmaps, product development plans and contribute to the Landing Gear technology, product and business strategies.
  • Delivering of Engineering tasks and projects to time, quality and cost.
  • Liaise, co-ordinate and work with other Airbus Centres including other Airbus divisions (e.g. Helicopters, Space & Defence) to deliver the solutions.
  • Integration of the solutions within the Landing Gear System as well as other systems and structure of the Aircraft.
  • Liaise with the Landing Gear Systems, Equipment and Extended Enterprise Suppliers to deliver technical solutions.
  • Identify and work with new collaborators including non-industrial partners e.g. Research institutes and academia to seek, scope and deliver solutions.
  • Support co-ordination of Milestone and Technology Readiness Level Reviews including Process Assurance.
  • Actively identify risk, opportunities and mitigations.
  • Adherence to Airbus Processes & Procedures with a continuous improvement mind-set.

About You:

  • Knowledge in both systems engineering (architecture or control system design) and data science is preferred but candidates may alternatively have a strong knowledge in one area and a willingness to diversify.
  • Involvement in aerospace systems and specifically landing gear systems is preferred but not essential.
