  • Optimise and develop engineering simulation tools for noise and vibration.
  • Communicate findings to project teams, including senior managers, company directors and James Dyson.
  • Work with design teams to optimise our products and integrate new acoustic solutions.
  • Identify potential new research areas which would benefit from noise and vibration technology development.


  • A degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent
  • Experience of finite element analysis or related simulation tools (e.g. boundary element, CFD, ANSYS, Comsol, Numeca).
  • A clear logical thinker, curious about new concepts, with a creative approach to solving problems.
  • A self-starter, capable of working un-supervised to an agreed goal.

Also desirable:

  • Programming or signal processing experience (MATLAB preferred).
  • Experience of noise and vibration data acquisition hardware and software.
  • Aerodynamics or aero-acoustic fundamentals.
