Research Software Engineer for Railway System Integration

Do you have an established research track record with the vision and drive to tackle new challenges? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive Universities?

The University of Leeds along with external partners is investing around £70 Million to establish a new high-speed rail and system integration institute. A 10-acre site is being developed as a Rail Engineering/Technology campus, primarily for high-speed rail research and including a systems integration and innovation centre in which the School of Electronics and Electrical Engineering is contributing significantly.

This 3-year post is industry-funded and the goal is to develop a three-tiered integration platform for compatibility and verification studies of railway electrification. Also, the project will investigate the optimal design and integration of the power supply system and equipment, given the complex legacy infrastructure and existing power supply systems in the UK rail network. You will work closely with a Research Fellow within a large, multidisciplinary team.
