  • MSc. in Aerospace Engineering / Mechanical Engineering
  • Hands-on experience on hardware projects, especially those related to rocket
    propulsion
  • Good knowledge of rocket engine design and analysis
  • Experience working with FEA / CFD software
  • Experience in testing and data analysis
  • Coding experience in math environments (MATLAB/Simulink and/or Python)
  • Fluent in English
 

Desired competences:

  • Previous experience in development of liquid thrusters and apogee engines for the industry (monopropellant and bipropellant)
  • Experience in AIT of liquid propulsion systems
  • Skilled in CAD modelling (Siemens NX is a plus)
  • Fluent in Spanish
 

Salary and benefits:

  • Salary to be agreed based on experience
  • Full time work with some remote work flexibility

Doctor in Chemistry / Chemical Engineering

Responsibilities:

This position will require a high level of autonomy and responsibility, as this profile will be leading the development of Arkadia’s green hypergolic fuel, to be used for combustion rockets using hydrogen peroxide of high concentration as oxidizer. Among others, the tasks to perform will include, but not be limited to: 

  • In charge of the development of Arkadia’s hypergolic fuels 
  • Preparation of fuel blends 
  • Coordination of external actors in research projects with national and international research entities and universities 
  • Support in laboratory analyses for fuel properties determination, including drop-tests 
  • Propellant qualification
 

Required competences:

  • PhD in Chemistry / Chemical Engineering; a PhD in other engineering branch (like liquid propulsion) with relevant experience in fuel / chemical developments can also be considered. The title must belong to, or be approved by, a Spanish institution. In the latter case, the approval process shall be finished prior to the position’s starting date 
  • Good knowledge in homogeneous catalysis 
  • Laboratory experience, among others, in the preparation and adjustment of solutions and colloids, but also with a strong emphasis in the analysis part, with experience in processes like titration, viscosity determination and other common lab procedures 
  • Fluent in English and Spanish 
 

Desired competences:

  • Previous experience in development of liquid fuels for rocket engines, especially in the field of green hypergolic propellants (based on hydrogen peroxide) 
  • Good knowledge in heterogenous catalysis 
  • Experience in modelling combustion and transport phenomena
 

Salary and benefits:

  • Indefinite contract, salary to be agreed based on experience.
 

Starting date:

  • March 2023
