Description of the job :
A vacancy for a Study Engineer for Optical Instruments in Space (d/m/f) has arisen within Airbus Defence and Space in Ottobrunn (Munich). The successful applicant will join Ge Studies Perf & Verification.

The Airbus Division 'Optical Instruments' is Europe's largest manufacturer of Optical Instruments for applications in space. We are a large-system integrator, organized as a transnational unit with sites in Munich, Friedrichshafen, and Toulouse. Our group includes all relevant engineering disciplines and has the complete end-to-end capability to develop complex space instruments, starting from early feasibility studies, followed by development and manufacturing phases up to in-orbit commissioning. Our portfolio includes all instrument classes, ranging from imaging spectrometers and meteorological sounders to LIDARs and high resolution cameras.

We are currently reinforcing our growing team for 'Future Instrument Programs'. You will be part of a team to prepare and shape the next generation of optical instruments in space.

2) Systems engineering of space instruments in early development phases, which includes
- Understanding and analysis of technical requirements, typically in direct interaction with scientific institutes
- Development of alternative instrument concepts and design solutions
- Consolidation and preliminary design of instrument baseline
3) Identification and development of new innovative instrument concepts, e.g. for commercial applications such as satellite constellations or high-altitude pseudo-satellites (HAPS).
4) Development of enabling technologies within our R&D program, e.g. advanced photonic components, ultrastable opto-mechanics, or detectors. This can include supervising of master or PhD students and interaction with academia.
5) Support our business growth by shaping our programmatic roadmaps for future instruments, in consistency with the policies of the space agencies and other internal and external stakeholders.
