You will be working closely with the departments of Flight Physics and Airframe in order to calculate and analyse external wing loads for all major Airbus programmes, including the A320 family and the A350XWB. You will be involved from the very beginning of the process (first concepts and preliminary design) through to end product certification.

The team is situated at the interface between many different engineering disciplines and works across many different projects, including the very latest research and technology projects focusing on sustainability and zero emissions. This role provides an exciting opportunity to work as part of a collaborative and supportive team.

  • Calculate, interpret and deliver static and fatigue external loads acting on the wing components in adherence with the relevant airworthiness regulations, quality processes and programme assumptions;
  • Support the wing airframe design teams in their use of this data;
  • Support flight test campaigns to validate load calculations;
  • Acquire competencies related to new technologies, for example, data analytics, Model Based Systems Engineering, Artificial Intelligence etc.;
  • Continuously improve quality, processes, methods and tools;
  • Ensure a positive relationship and team spirit is maintained within the team and with all stakeholders.

As your knowledge and experience grows, you will be relied upon to contribute to aircraft optimisation and identify and manage technical risk through innovative, multidisciplinary approaches.

This role will involve some travel for business and as such you must be able to travel accordingly.
