POSTGRADUATE STUDENT – Powertrain Aftertreatment
PROJECT START: As soon as a successful candidate is found.
PROJECT DURATION: Six to Twelve Months
LOCATION: Whitley, Coventry UK
Closing date for applications: 14/09/2018
Pulses racing. Spines tingling. Throughout our history, our iconic vehicles have delivered some of the most emotive driving experiences on the road. Today, with increasing demand and ever-growing ambition, we’re seeking the next generation of innovators who will capture the hearts and minds of customers in every corner of the world.
This project is offered to those who are pursuing a postgraduate degree (at least MSc or equivalent) as a part of the Research Postgraduate Placement Scheme. All placements are offered on a fixed term contract and must complete within twelve months, or sooner if specified in the start and completion information as part of this specification. You will agree with your manager on a suitable start and finish time and project objectives aligned with your technical interests and business needs. Students must already have a Right to Work in the UK visa for the complete duration of the placement, and be able to undertake 40 hours per week, each week, for the duration of the project.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Using state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll provide the power behind our vehicles working in our Powertrain Engineering team. You'll find the ideal balance between performance and sustainability, while responding to the environmental issues that shape our industry.
In your new Postgraduate opportunity within our Powertrain Advanced and Calibration Controls department, which is responsible for delivering robust, innovative and coast-effective technologies to our customers, you'll be selecting one of two key projects; Electrically Heated Catalysts, which involves developing the most efficient and cost effective electrical controller to achieve EU7 diesel emission standards, and Daedalus for Gasoline / Diesel, which will investigate the potential benefits of implementing advanced modelling for a Gasoline and / or Diesel after-treatment system.
Both projects will require complete immersion in the associated technologies, with key objectives outlined across these 12 month and 6 month projects respectively.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You'll bring a general understanding of electrification within internal combustion engines and the impact on associated aftertreatment systems, as well as experience of working with Gasoline or Diesel aftertreatment systems in vehicles. You must be pursuing a degree in Automotive, Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, and ideally you'll have worked on projects related to mathematical system modelling and Design of Experiments-based modelling.
You'll be comfortable challenging stakeholders at various levels within the business and you'll be resilient, enthusiastic, responsive to criticism and suggestions, and able to deliver results under pressure.
Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunities for all.
