Postgraduate Placements

Our Postgraduate Programme has been developed for the most inquisitive and daring minds. Research is where our most groundbreaking features are born. It’s where new technologies are explored. Join our research team and help us reimagine the next generation of luxury vehicles.


    Postgraduate opportunities

    The award-winning All-Terrain Progress Control featured in the Range Rover Sport. The ultra-light all-aluminium body structure of the Jaguar XE. The world’s first Rotary Shifter showcased on the Land Rover Discovery 4. From intelligent hybrids to driverless vehicles, evolving existing technologies to discovering new ways to store energy, our ambition for the future of our vehicles and the luxury automotive industry is limitless.

    The programme is a mixture of academic study and practical work, where you’ll get to work on a live project within one of our development areas. Your ideas and enthusiasm will help us deliver the luxury vehicles that delight our customers around the world.



    This is a great opportunity to apply your technical skills and, depending on your performance, you might be offered a permanent, full-time position. Normally, you will be studying for a postgraduate degree in engineering or a science-related subject, although this can vary depending on the project you’ll be working on. Our placements vary in terms of duration depending on the complexity of the subject and, as you will be working on a real project, the opening and closing dates can also vary for each opportunity so check the specific details for each role. During your placement, you will be based at one of our Research & Development teams in either Coventry or Gaydon.

    Projects are offered to those who are pursuing a postgraduate degree (at a master level or equivalent) as part of a Research Postgraduate Placement Programme. All placements are offered on a fixed-term contract and must be completed within 12 months, or sooner if specified in the project description. If successful, together with your manager, you will agree on a suitable start and finish time, and project objectives aligned with your technical interests and business needs. You must already have a right to work in the UK for the entire duration of the placement, and be able to undertake 40 hours per week for the duration of the project.
