Conceptual Aircraft Design Engineer
Aurora Flight Sciences is currently seeking a mid-level engineer to join the Advanced Concepts Group of the Cambridge Research and Technology Center. In this role, the candidate will pursue advanced research in aerodynamics, modelling and multi-disciplinary optimization in a fast-paced development environment and contribute to the maturation of unconventional aircraft configurations for both commercial and military applications. The candidate will be expected to conceive and evaluate clean-sheet concepts making use of a variety of enabling technologies, and support these programs from preliminary design through fabrication and flight test.
The successful candidate will possess a varied, multi-disciplinary background and a willingness to accept multiple roles in a variety of technical areas, as required by active programs. The successful candidate will also have significant experience with aircraft conceptual design, selection and use of analysis tools across a range of modelling fidelities and the use of optimization in design.
Aurora Flight Sciences, a Boeing Company, is a leader in the development and manufacturing of advanced unmanned systems and aerospace vehicles. Our mission is to apply autonomy and robotics to the development, production, and operation of advanced aircraft. We aim to change the way we travel.
We frequently achieve what others can’t due to a combination of experience, persistence, collaboration, and a culture of innovation. Projects are ambitious and risky. We apply breakthrough technologies to create a new state of the art, rather than advancing the old one.
During the last three decades, Aurora has designed, rapid prototyped, and flown an average of one new vehicle a year for both government and commercial customers. Now as an independent subsidiary of Boeing, Aurora’s innovation is combined with Boeing’s size and strength, creating an unprecedented opportunity to disrupt the future of the aerospace industry.
