Thermal & Fluid Dynamics Engineer (Dyson Digital Motor)


Science and Research
Singapore - Advanced Manufacturing

About us

We have an exciting opportunity for an Aerodynamics / CFD / Thermal Engineer to work within our Motors Analysis & Simulation Team, to apply their skills and experience in Fluid Dynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to deliver our next generation motors and their product integration. He/she will also use analytical techniques to add insight into experimental results, driving early development concepts, supporting projects with appropriate technology readiness and advancement. In addition, the candidate will be expected to continually improve and develop Fluid Dynamics techniques and methodologies, in order to build the capability of Motors and Power Systems group and Dyson as a whole. If this speaks to you, we want to connect with you for an introductory chat as the team continues to expand!

About the role

  • Generate innovative concepts for new technologies using analytical techniques including CFD and experiments.
  • Responsible for all activities related to thermal management and aerodynamic performance of the electric motor through design, development and delivery.
  • Responsible to develop air paths and cooling options for mechanical, electrical and electronic components of the motor system to achieve robustness and high performance. 
  • Responsible for supporting implementation of design concepts from component design through to finished assembly. This would include analysis, product concepts, dimensional verification, and general demonstration of the use of core engineering disciplines.
  • Responsible for leading the development of design concepts through prototype hardware procurement, assembly, testing, data analysis, fault analysis, problem solving, and design refinement. This may require some direction of technical support personnel.

About you

  • A bachelor’s degree or higher in Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering or equivalent (other relevant engineering disciplines will be considered) (Doctorate would be an advantage).
