Job description

At McLaren Racing we pride ourselves in engineering excellence and we achieve this by working together and encouraging innovation in an extraordinary high performance environment.


The McLaren PhD internship programme in CFD and data analytics gives you an opportunity to work in a unique & challenging environment of the motorsport aerodynamics department. As an intern in the CFD methodology team, you will be involved in development/evaluation of CFD and tools to be used in the aerodynamic design of the F1™ car.

Job requirements

Interns will also have an opportunity to work on projects providing CFD support to non-aero departments. Working closely with the aerodynamicists, CFD R&D engineers and HPC systems engineers, you will have an opportunity to learn practical aspects of motorsport aerodynamic design.


The internship is open to PhD students in engineering or computing science from the second year onwards and this four month programme starts in May and September. PhD interns will be paid a monthly stipend.
