The research engineer will work within the HOPE project co-sponsored by the European Commission. The HOPE project aims to deliver an integrated aircraft propulsion system comprising two multi-fuel ultra-high bypass ratio (UHBR) turbofan engines, a fuel cell based auxiliary propulsion and power unit (FC-APPU) driving an aft boundary layer ingestion (BLI) propulsor based on tube-wing aircraft configuration. Within the HOPE project, a turboshaft engine will be tested on hydrogen and then with hydrogen and kerosene.
The research engineer would be working within the chair of Sustainable Aircraft Propulsion at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, TU Delft, which is one of the best institutes in the world for Aerospace Engineering.
The research engineer will work on the design, manufacturing, installation and testing of a mobile engine test rig which can be used to test different types of engines, including small turboshaft, fuel cell powertrain, etc. The research engineer will carry out design studies of this engine test facility and will play a crucial role in getting it manufactured, installed and tested. Within the HOPE project, a turboshaft engine will be first tested with kerosene and then with hydrogen. The research engineer will play a leading role in these tasks and will work within a dynamic team that is motivated to push the boundaries of technologies to make aviation sustainable.
Fixed-term contract: 1 year.
