APPLIED PHYSICIST

We are seeking an experienced Applied Physicist to join our technical team to model and develop our rover's energy generation system. The primary responsibility of this position is to design and optimize the energy generation system of our team's polar rover. The role will involve designing and implementing the solar panel system as well as any other energy sources that may be necessary to ensure the vehicle has adequate power for its mission. In addition, you will work with other technical sub-teams to create an energy balance model for the entire vehicle.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Design and optimize the energy generation system for the team's polar rover, focusing on solar panel systems initially.

 

  • Collaborate with other technical sub-teams to create an energy balance model for the vehicle.

 

  • Develop and implement analytical models to predict the performance of the energy system under different operating conditions.

 

  • Analyze the data generated from testing the system to make improvements to the design and identify potential issues.

 

  • Conduct research to identify alternative energy sources and develop new energy storage systems.

 ​

  • Work closely with other technical sub-teams to ensure that the energy system is fully integrated with other aspects of the rover's design.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Experience with solar panel design and implementation is highly desirable.

  • Strong analytical and modeling skills, with experience using simulation software such as MATLAB or SIMULINK.

  • Knowledge of energy storage systems and energy management is highly desirable.

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

  • Strong problem-solving skills, with the ability to think creatively and develop innovative solutions.

WHAT DO WE OFFER?

  • A unique environment where you work with a group of ambitious students towards one goal

  • A diverse team with whom you often do fun things

  • The chance to build a network with our partners

  • The perfect opportunity to enhance your CV

  • The opportunity to follow different trainings offered by our partners

  • Enough freedom, but also set goals to make the most of your time at Team Polar

If you are a passionate and motivated Applied Physicist looking to work on a challenging and exciting project with a dynamic team, then we encourage you to apply for this position.
