Environmental Scientist / Engineer - Air Quality
£Competitive + 27 Days Holiday, Pension, Bonus, Free Onsite Gym
The role is situated within the Environmental Control Research Group and you will be working in a cross functional team of scientists and engineers, performing early stage research to support new product innovation.
You will use your multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific abilities to measure, model and characterise air quality issues and predict the performance of air purification products. You will also be involved with the continuing development of existing technologies. This role will combine theoretical and experimental techniques, and require time-management and organisation skills and a strong ability to communicate and engage with stakeholders across all levels of the business.
With the fast pace in which research are required to operate, you will be required to take a leading role in the development and the delivery of a wide range of new and exciting air quality projects. Quickly identifying critical parameters and developing test methods, capabilities and models around them will be required.
The role will require the interaction with NPI and NPD teams and occasionally wider business functions. Good communication of technical information is essential to making this position a success. You must be able to deliver projects on time, cost and specification in this evolving environment.
At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do.
