Chassis Dynamics Manager

Main Task

Your main responsibilities will consist of leading a subteam and being a member of the team management. In this role you are to lead the Chassis Dynamics-team and to make sure that deadlines are set and reached, and that every subsystem has the resources it needs to perform its task. By leading the weekly Chassis Dynamics -meetings and attending the weekly manager-meetings you will be responsible for making sure that the Chassis Dynamics-team is aligned with the overall goals of the organization as well as representing their interests in relation to the rest of the project. As a board member you will be involved in and take decisions on problems not directly related to Chassis Dynamics but to the team and the project as whole. Your second responsibility is to be the subteam leader for Chassis Dynamics. In this area you will not have a direct design responsibility, but you will rather be responsible for the Chassis Dynamics-subteam as a whole which includes guiding and advising the members in their design-choices. Because the Chassis Dynamics subteam designs many different parts of the car, this manager role also includes being in contact with sponsors that will provide both material and manufacturing for our team. It is therefore important that you have a wide knowledge in areas such as structural and solid mechanics, transmissions, material science, management and manufacturing methods in order to help you subteam as much as you can.

Your Profile

Apart from having an interest in the dynamic aspects of a race car, you should also have an interest in the organizational aspects of Lund Formula Student. For this role, you should have an interest in leading a group of people in a large scale project rather than having a design-responsibility yourself. Being structured, organized and seeing the larger picture are skills which will be important for this task. You should be able to operate more independently and to take much initiative yourself in order to help the subteam and the team. You should have great communication skills and also be solution oriented.
