This position will be based at Howden Process Compressors in Glasgow

This position offers an exceptional career opportunity within an award winning Global Engineering business. Working at the interface between business and academia, you will be supported by a team of senior academics and company staff and will have direct exposure at senior management level as you deliver a strategically important project for Howden Process Compressors (HPC). In addition to a highly competitive salary and personal development budget of £5k, the successful candidate will undergo management training and have the opportunity to gain management qualifications (Chartered Management Institute) as well as a higher degree at no additional cost.

The post is part funded by Innovate UK’s Prestigious KTP scheme, set up by Government to develop the next generation of UK business leaders in parallel with enhancing the capability and competitiveness of UK businesses through partnering with higher education institutions.

Whilst the position is a 30 month fixed term contract, it is the expectation of the company that, subject to performance, the successful candidate may be offered future employment within HPC; the knowledge and experience gained through the KTP project, as well as impact delivered for the company, would then be recognised through appropriate remuneration and career advancement opportunities that exist within HPC and the wider Howden Group. Whilst an employee of the University, the successful candidate will have access to training opportunities available to existing HPC staff.  

The successful candidate will hold an A MSc. in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering (or other appropriate MSc.) along with the ability to demonstrate experience in Modelling & Control of Rotational Systems, remote monitoring and condition monitoring experience, knowledge of SCADA and industrial programming languages such as Logix5000.  Further essential criteria for this role include strong data analysis skills, use of MATLAB, Simulink (or other advanced modelling system) and experience of remote monitoring and condition monitoring.

Due to the nature of this role, we are unable to sponsor individuals under the Tier 2 PBS route. Applicants must therefore have the continued right to live and work in the United Kingdom for the duration of the contract to apply for this vacancy.
