Description de l'emploi :

As Electric Motor Design Engineer, you will be part of a multinational team in charge of developing an advanced superconducting and cryogenic powertrain to enable high power electric propulsion systems for aircraft application.

It will be composed of a cryogenic DC/DC converter, a superconducting DC network with protections, a cryogenic motor drive, a superconducting electric motor and a cryogenic cooling system developed with partners from worldwide industry and academia, start-ups in a dynamic and emulating environment.

This position is based in Toulouse and it comes with a limited contract till December 2026, the deadline of the demonstrator.

You will be in charge with the Superconducting electric motor team of:

  • developing, manufacture and test a superconducting electrical motor for electric aircraft propulsion
  • to developing design and characterization tools for superconductive electric motors and manufacturing process
  • building a strong ecosystem and supply chain for electric motor production
  • providing and validate the main project milestones: specification, PDR, CDR, TRL assessment and justification
  • creating a detailed roadmap aiming to increase the technology readiness level (TRL) of such technology to ensure reliability and efficiency for future product
  • participating in the definition, assessment and maturation of the overall architecture of the propulsion systems for future electric propulsion aircraft using superconductivity

You are passionate about aeronautics, sciences and technologies, have a strong technical background and like to make and test yourself breakthrough technologies on concrete demonstrations.

You like difficult challenges and are the type of person who thinks about “how things can be done” rather than “if they can be done”.


As an Electric Motor Design Engineer, you will be part of the team in charge of designing, prototyping and testing a superconducting electric motor. Your main tasks and responsibilities will include:

  • Participating in the complete design of the superconducting motor (from pre-design to the detailed drawings)
  • Leading the manufacturing process and industrial roadmap
  • Selecting and managing the industrial partners and suppliers
  • Managing the delivery of demonstrator and sub-demonstrators with respect to project goals and timeline
  • Ability to collaborate with internal transverse teams (mechanical, thermal, …) to make sure of the good integrability of the motor to overall powertrain.

Your boarding pass

What you bring

  • At least 5 years experiences in electric motor development, from design to laboratory testing for aeronautic applications
  • MSc or PhD in electrical/mechanical engineering or similar
  • Strong skills in multiphysics modeling (electrical, mechanical, thermal)
  • Hands-on experience in prototyping and manufacturing electric motors
  • Well-built professional network within their domain of expertise, including academics, industrial players, consultants, entrepreneurs
  • Knowledge in superconductivity state of the art and technologies usable for aeronautic applications would be appreciated
  • Autonomy, Adaptability, Availability, Accountability
  • Hands-on and solution oriented attitude
  • Passionate about technology and science
  • Sharing the values of transparency, courage, humility, empathy

What you get

  • An environment that not only fosters your development in many ways, but also rewards it with plenty of room to grow
  • A shared open space office with highly skilled multicultural teams
  • Ability to craft your calendar with flexible hours/Opportunity to work remotely
  • UpNext communities bonding events
  • A high-achieving, experienced and fun team
