The Aerospace Technology Institute is recruiting for an H2 specialist within Fly Zero, which is a project which aims to enable the UK to lead a revolution in zero-carbon air travel.
FlyZero will pull together expertise from across the UK supply chain and universities in an initial 12-month programme to look at the design challenges and market opportunity of potential zero-emission aircraft concepts.
The successful applicant will provide expert input to ensure the team explores overall hydrogen storage design space effectively. They will produce designs and undertake analysis in order to model a storage system which meets the design requirements and help shape requirements where it may provide an advantage to the overall aircraft.
Experience should include:
Experience of designing gaseous and liquid hydrogen storage systems, knowledge of the system integration and distribution desired. This knowledge may come from outside aerospace. Access to hydrogen storage design and analysis tools.
Characteristics and skills:
Self-motivated and able to work under own autonomy or as part of a team, meeting various deadlines as required.
An ability to maintain confidentiality and act with discretion and diplomacy is crucial. Comfortable interacting with people at all levels of the organisation, demonstrating good judgement, self-awareness, and sensitivity.
