Senior FEA Engineer (Finite Element Analysis)


Are you an experienced FEA specialist within mechanical simulations? Do you want to use your skills and experience to raise the FEA area within UR even further? Then you might be our Senior FEA Engineer.


We offer an exciting job in a dynamic and fast-growing company with the opportunity of working alongside skilled and talented colleagues. Our development and growth are driven by the innovations of our R&D engineers, and in this role, you will be trusted with responsibility to design and drive our future FEA efforts.

Design for the future


As our FEA specialist at Universal Robots, you will be a part of an empowered team of simulation specialist. Your passion to further develop our simulation and virtual development capabilities will spread across the department, raising our level of development in R&D.

In this role, you design for the future by:

  • Developing future products for the market
  • Working with FEA-simulation and design optimization
  • Translating simulation results into understandable findings and communicating these to relevant stakeholders
  • Creating the workflow, best practices and tools for FEA simulations
  • Being strategically involved in improving our FEA competencies and Digital Twin Development


You will be a part of our R&D mechanical department in Odense.

Who are we looking for?

Our passionate R&D colleagues exercise a high level of competence, and you must too in your day-to-day tasks. You demonstrate a deep orientation to detail and structure in your workflow. You are driven by an eagerness to develop better FEA solutions and your own engineering skills.


To succeed, we imagine you come with:

  • M.Sc. or Ph.D. in mechanical engineering with 3-5 years of relevant R&D experience
  • Experience with FEA – static, multibody dynamics, modal, fatigue, fracture, as well as multi-physics simulations
  • Experience with ANSYS and have knowledge of design optimization, programming (E.g. Python, APDL, MATLAB)
  • Experience with robust design and design specifications, e.g. FMEA, DFM, DFA
  • Preferably, knowledge of casted metals and FEA simulation verification and validation methodologies

As English is our corporate language, fluency is a must. Danish is a plus, but not required.
