Graduate Job



  • As a high-tech engineering consultancy Frazer-Nash values the additional skills and experience that Doctorate graduates bring to our business. The value you bring comes through a combination of specialist knowledge, a robust understanding of engineering fundamentals from undergraduate teaching, experience of presenting at conferences, and ability to engage with a range of stakeholders to solve problems.
  • Within our Energy Technology area, over 25% of your potential colleagues and line managers have themselves completed PhDs, DPhils or EngDs. Therefore, your like-minded colleagues are readily equipped to help you to make the most of your experience and skills and tailor a career development plan for you.


  • The successful applicant will meet the following minimum requirements:
  • Specialist knowledge in performing analysis, simulation, or data science practices relevant to the nuclear industry, gained through a PhD, DPhil or EngD.
  • An aptitude to develop further skills in applying analysis, simulation and data interpretation techniques to engineering problems, varying from performing hand calculations to developing complex simulation / analytical models or the statistical analysis of data.
  • Have an interest in and an understanding of the nuclear fission, fusion and/or the wider energy industry.
  • Be a strong team player but with the ability to work independently.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • It is to your advantage if you meet any or all the following additional requirements:
  • Experience in delivery of analysis to support the nuclear or wider energy industry.
  • Experience in the interpretation and analysis of large or complex data sets, including statistical and uncertainty analysis.
  • Experience of coding using python, MATLAB or other relevant software languages to support or optimise analysis or simulation.
  • Experience in writing proposals, client liaison and business development
  • Have, or working towards, Chartered Engineer status

Area of Responsibilities



  • Our Nuclear Technology team provide technical analysis services to the current and next generation of nuclear reactors, fusion reactors, and the wider energy industry. We help our customers understand physical systems through data investigations and modelling, and work with them to resolve their operational problems, optimise the design of new systems, and demonstrate that safe operation will be achieved.
  • We are looking for PhD Graduates with a keen interest in the nuclear fission, fusion and the wider energy industry to join our team as we grow to meet the future energy industry demands. We are particularly interested in candidates who have developed and applied analytical techniques, simulation tools and cutting-edge data science practices to understand physical phenomena directly relevant to the nuclear industry as part of their research.
  • Joining our team as a Nuclear Technology Analyst you will be well supported in:
  • Developing skills to communicate with our customers, understand their requirements, and produce plans to deliver their desired outcomes.
  • Applying and expanding your analysis, simulation and data science skills and technical knowledge to understand the performance of real engineering systems.
  • Communicating complex concepts and results to our customers in a way that can be readily understood.
  • Frazer-Nash empowers its staff to manage the delivery of the project themselves at an early stage in their careers. Therefore, as your career progresses, you will also get the opportunity to:
  • Develop skills in management of all aspects of technical projects, including client communication, project delivery and managing other project staff.
  • Understand how we develop new business by responding to enquiries and writing bids, and also representing Frazer-Nash at client meetings, conferences and seminars.
  • Our projects are very diverse and can last from a few weeks to many years of sustained support. Typically, our people are involved in multiple projects at any one time giving a good variety of work.
  • Technical disciplines applied in the team include neutronics and core physics, data science, statistical analysis, materials science, thermal modelling, fluids mechanics, support to structural assessment and safety case authoring. However, we are always looking to strengthen and diversify our capabilities and you will have the opportunity to help shape our future skills and services.
