Job description

POSTGRADUATE ENGINEER –  Powertrain - Thermal, Cooling
PROJECT START:  As soon as a successful candidate is found. 
PROJECT DURATION:  Six to Twelve Months 
LOCATION:   Whitley, 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.



The Powertrain Thermal Function Layer is a Systems Engineering Function which sits within the core of Powertrain with the responsibility for identifying and capturing the requirements from a vehicle attribute and function level relating to the warm-up, retention and cool down and cascading them to the departments within Powertrain (Engines, EDUs, PT-Cooling, Propulsion Battery etc), identifying the new methods needed and ensuring compatibility to these requirements early in the process via CAE and test.

On this postgraduate placement, you’ll replicate the work performed to date on internal combustion, Thermal Function Layer for Battery Electric Vehicles to enable a Systems Engineering approach for our Powertrain Thermal Systems.


As part of your role, you’ll work cross-functionally inside and outside of Powertrain to publish the boundary and interface diagrams; identify requirements and how they cascade to the delivery teams; and identify the CAE and test methods needed and work with the teams to deliver those.

You’ll also update the Functional FMEA to take into account the BEV Thermal failure modes, prevention and detection methods and create the interface target sheet for confirming compatibility between the delivery groups.


You must be currently pursuing a postgraduate degree in a Mechanical Engineering related discipline. You also need to already hold a BEng/MEng (or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering, including modules in Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer.

If you have knowledge of Systems Engineering, E-Machines, Propulsion Batteries, Failure Mode and experience of CAE/Test methodology, that would be even better, but it’s not essential.

A resilient self-starter with the ability to resolve technical challenges with limited guidance, you’ll be able to deliver results under pressure, whilst responding constructively to new ideas and inputs.


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.
