Postgraduate Engineer - Powertrain Simulation (29624)

Job description


POSTGRADUATE ENGINEER –  Powertrain Simulation

PROJECT START:  As soon as a successful candidate is found. 

PROJECT DURATION:  Six to Twelve Months 

LOCATION:   Whitley/Warwick University, Coventry UK 

POSTING END DATE: 31/08/2018



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.


An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world’s most iconic brands. Jaguar Land Rover is revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.



Powertrain Research are responsible for delivering new technology into the Jaguar Land Rover products. The Computer Aided Engineering team develops simulation methods for new concepts. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic engineer who is interested in combining these disciplines to generate three-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling for Battery technology.

On this postgraduate placement, you’ll develop our capability to modelling future heat transfer systems for electrified powertrains, with particular attention to battery thermal modelling using 3D computational fluid dynamics tools. A secondary objective includes the integration of multiple commercial tools to perform both  thermal (CFD) and structural (FEA) modelling.


As part of your role you’ll investigate Conjugate Heat Transfer modelling techniques and their application to the development of state-of-the-art battery thermal solutions   capturing the requirements for modelling coolant circuit and cell behaviour under both steady and transient load conditions.  You’ll be responsible for the development of Conjugate Heat Transfer models, using Computational Fluid Dynamics to baseline cutting edge technologies with regards to electric/ hybrid systems, as well as  design parameter sensitivity  analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamics solver  with pre and post- processing techniques. You’ll integrate these new models into Finite Element Analysis and report out recommendations for the technologies to Project Leads.



You’ll be pursuing a postgraduate degree in Engineering or Science , bringing experience in modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics tools, and general understanding of both electrification in Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) and thermodynamics.  Experience of StarCCM+ and Abacus software would be desirable, as would battery modelling experience.



Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.



Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunities for all.
