If you would like to make a real difference on the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. Then this position at MAN Energy Solutions R&D is the right place for you. You will become an expert in developing the future engine processes in regards to new fuels, like biofuels, ammonia or hydrogen, and completely new combustion principles. You will be joining the world leading team of experts when it comes to creating new combustion engine technologies for marine large two-stroke diesel engines, supporting a sustainable marine fleet. We are looking for a combustion expert or simulation specialist to join the Engine Process Development Department in two-stroke R&D Copenhagen.

What are you going to do?
As a R&D Engineer, you can:

  • Be responsible for planning, running and analyzing tests on real marine two-stroke engines using new fuels and new combustion processes. Either, at our test rigs in Copenhagen or at our licensees in Asia.
  • Make numerical models of engine processes, combustion processes, and chemical kinetics or exhaust gas emissions.
  • Be part of a cutting-edge research group making to the most efficient combustion engine in the world and developing the next generation engine concepts for large two-stroke engines. The group is responsible for the initial engine development for new fuels, such as biofuels, methane, ethane, LPG, methanol, ethanol, ammonia, water emulsions, hydrogen and many more.
  • Cooperate with a wide range of departments within and outside R&D on a variety of tasks and projects, many times taking the lead in developing new components and strategies.
  • Share knowledge and experience and hereby contribute significantly to the success of the development of new components and systems. This includes participating in several academic collaborations focusing on developing further and deeper understanding of the engine processes.
  • Work primarily in our office in Copenhagen. However, some travel days per year, typically in either Europe or Asia, are to be expected.

Who are you?
We imagine that you:

  • Have a Ph.D. or M.Sc. degree in Engineering, Physics or Applied Mathematics.
  • Have an expert background or knowledge in one or several of the following fields: combustion processes, combustion simulations, fluid mechanics, computer simulations of complex systems, thermodynamics, optical engine investigations, and fuels.
  • Have good scripting skills - we make extensive use of the scripting language python.
  • Can take a holistic view and analyses problems from varying, complex and new points of view.
  • Are a team player and good at both understanding the problem definitions of your colleagues and explaining about the relevance of your work.
  • Are curious to learn new things and open to new ideas.

How is your new team/area of business?
You will join the most skilled team in the world working on combustion related matter in this field. The team consists of highly committed experts from a very wide range of fields. We develop new combustion principles of new fuels such as ammonia and hydrogen, model exhaust gas emissions, make new engine processes, analyze new lubrication oils etc. We are also responsible for the chemical laboratory at our research facilities in Copenhagen.

We plan, execute and evaluate actual tests of all new processes both at our test engines in Copenhagen and at our licensees, mainly in Korea and Japan in order to validate all new concepts.

The working atmosphere is relaxed and flexible in a team that is highly committed to helping each other in a supportive and constructive manner. We create many of our in-house calculations tools and a comprehensive understanding of the engine processes has therefore been gathered within the group. We hope you are able to contribute further to this development.
