Flight Physics Intern
Aurora Flight Sciences is a world leader in the development of highly autonomous aircraft. Our mission is to apply autonomy and robotics to the development, production, and operation of advanced aircraft. We aim to change the way we travel.
We frequently achieve what others can’t due to a combination of experience, persistence, collaboration, and a culture of innovation. Projects are ambitious and risky. We apply breakthrough technologies to create a new state of the art, rather than advancing the old one.
This is your chance to make history with us. We are seeking experts and explorers across the lifecycle of vehicle development. Cross-disciplinary interests are strongly desired; we love people that combine world-class expertise with a diverse background and interesting hobbies.
We are seeking intern applicants in our Flight Physics division, focused on aerodynamics and aircraft conceptual design.
As part of the Flight Physics division, the intern will serve as a member of a team dedicated to developing and testing novel air-vehicle systems (fixed wing, VTOL, and rotary wing). The candidate will be part of a small integrated team designing and developing air vehicles and will be expected to support engineering tasks related to aerodynamic analysis and performance validation. The candidate will work with data, CFD results, and Matlab scripts to support aero-database development, loads generation, performance calculations, and subsystem testing. The candidate will also assist with detailed aerodynamic analyses and prepare results for customer presentations and program reviews. The position requires a strong ability to communicate and write in English and a broad knowledge of aeronautical sciences.
