AERODYNAMICS ENGINEER (100%)

IMMEDIATELY OR AFTER AGREEMENT

As an Aerodynamic Engineer at Tudor Pro Cycling, you will play a pivotal role in optimizing the aerodynamic performance of our riders and equipment. Working within our innovation unit you will employ cutting-edge techniques and technologies directly with team riders, our academic, and our technical partners to maximise aerodynamic performance.

 

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Aerodynamic Analysis and Optimisation: Conduct detailed aerodynamic analysis using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, wind tunnel testing, track testing, and on-road testing to optimize rider position, equipment design, and race strategies.

  • Equipment Development: Collaborate with the innovation team and our industry partners to design, test, and refine cycling equipment, minimize drag and enhance performance.

  • Rider Positioning: Work closely with team riders, in collaboration with other support staff to optimize rider positioning on the bike; considering aerodynamic efficiency, biomechanics, and rider comfort.

  • Data Analysis: Analyse telemetry data from training rides and races to identify areas for improvement and develop strategies for maximizing aerodynamic performance during competition.

  • Performance Modelling: Develop predictive models to assess the impact of changes in equipment, rider position, and race tactics on aerodynamic performance and overall race outcomes.

  • Continuous Improvement: Stay abreast of the latest research and developments in aerodynamics, cycling technology, and sports science to ensure that Tudor Pro Cycling remains at the forefront of innovation in performance science.

 

THE SKILLS YOU SHOULD BRING: 

  • Bachelor's degree or higher in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or a related field. A postgraduate qualification in a similar area is highly desirable.

  • At least 2 years experience working in a similar role. Experience working within sport (especially cycling) is highly desirable.

  • Strong background in fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, and computational modelling.

  • Competent user of CFD software (e.g., Simcenter STAR-CCM+, ANSYS Fluent, OpenFOAM) and experienced in wind tunnel testing.

  • Experience working with CAD (e.g., Rhino, Solidworks, Simens NX) and CAE software packages/techniques

  • Knowledge of cycling biomechanics and experience working with cyclists preferred.

  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, with the ability to translate technical data into actionable insights for performance improvement.

  • Strong communication, presentation and teamwork skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with riders, coaches, engineers, and other stakeholders.

  • A passion for cycling and a commitment to excellence in performance and innovation.

WHAT WE OFFER:

  • The opportunity to be part of a team dedicated to improving cycling performance through the application of science and engineering.

  • The opportunity to work impactfully at the cutting edge of high-performance sport

  • The opportunity to develop products in partnership with world-leading industry and academic partners that are directly used in competition.

  • Being part of an innovative cycling team with big ambitions for the future.

  • Develop leadership skills and responsibilities – such as supervising PhD students and being responsible for the development of strategic themes.

  • The opportunity to work in a cross-disciplinary environment to understand whole system interactions.

 

Note: This position will be remote in nature but will require travel to Silverstone, UK for wind tunnel testing and ad-hoc travel across the EU and Switzerland for camps and competition.

Deadline for applications is 28th July 2024. Should you have any additional questions please contact Kurt Bergin-Taylor (Head of Innovation) : kurt.bergin-taylor@tudorprocycling.com.
