Cranfield University’s Advanced Vehicle Engineering Centre is seeking a self-motivated and quick-learning team-worker to develop and integrate battery management software to support a short-term project to completion. As part of its portfolio of research, Cranfield is participating in a project developing novel thermal estimation techniques for cells in lithium-ion batteries under test.
Applicants will be expected to hold a relevant PhD (for Research Fellow: or close to completion) or equivalent experience (academic or industrial). A degree in subject areas of Electrical or Control Engineering, Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering is desirable. The applicants should have prior experience writing software in a research/industrial environment, prior experience of interfacing software with the physical world, and skills in numerical computing, MATLAB and Simulink. The applicant will need to demonstrate good speaking and listening skills, good presentation skills, good time management and the ability to work independently. A level of experience comparable to that obtained through a relevant PhD will be expected, though this can be demonstrated through equivalent experience.
In return, the successful applicant will have exciting opportunities for career development in this key position, and to supportworld leading research and education, joining a supportive team and environment.

Diversity and Inclusion
Our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has shown that women and minority ethnic groups are currently underrepresented within the university and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from these groups.
To further demonstrate our commitment to progressing gender diversity in STEM, we are members of WES & Working Families, and sponsors of International Women in Engineering Day.
We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role. Find out more here.
