An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Non-Destructive Evaluation Research

You will be an integral part of our non-destructive testing group. As part of this
team, you will help us to provide a comprehensive range of integrated surface
inspection, non-destructive examination (NDE) and condition monitoring services
for all phases of the nuclear reactor lifecycle.

Working closely with other development teams within the Inspection, Maintenance
and Repair Services (IMRS) department, the NDE Research team is responsible
for the identification, development, and transfer of new and improved technologies
into IMRS and the wider Submarines business.

Our current activities involve:

  • Development of bespoke software for ultrasonic finite element simulations
  • Development of permanently installed ultrasonic monitoring systems
  • Deployment of new phased array inspection techniques onto the nuclear plant
  • Development of guidance material to support justification of high integrity
  • Design and support of high integrity inspection development and qualification

Project work ranges from research and development of solutions within IMRS
to project management and technical oversight of subcontracted tasks (both
commercial companies and academic institutions), and leadership of tasks being
conducted by doctoral students (including their supervision). There are often
opportunities to attend national and international conferences and there is also
strong support for engineers working toward chartership. You will also be
supported to obtain relevant practical NDE qualifications.

At Rolls-Royce, we develop integrated power and propulsion solutions and innovative
technologies that keep our customers one step ahead of an ever-changing world.

Our nuclear business is a leader in propulsion system design and development for the
Royal Navy's nuclear submarine fleet and the sole provider and technical authority,

  • Delivery of projects to time, cost, and quality.
  • Production of technical reports, presentation of your work, and dissemination
    of key results to stakeholders across the company.

Qualifications and experience:

  • A degree in physics, mechanical engineering, or another relevant STEM discipline.
  • The ability to produce clear, concise, and accurate technical reports.
  • The ability to work in a highly technical environment, in multidisciplinary teams
    and to tight deadlines.
  • You will be enthusiastic about research and development and will be comfortable
    undertaking a range of tasks including those requiring modelling and coding.

We offer excellent development, a competitive salary and exceptional benefits.
These include bonus, employee support assistance and employee discounts.

Pioneer the performance of the future. Join us and you'll develop your skills and
expertise to the very highest levels, working in an international environment
for a company known the world over for brilliance and innovation.
