The Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy is offering engineering graduates an opportunity to work in Formula One for a year.
“The Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy is a unique opportunity for top engineering talents from around the world,” said Infiniti boss Johan De Nysschen. “They can experience the highest levels of performance and precision in both Formula One and in road car engineering.”
Two winning candidates will complete a year-long assignment with the Triple World Championship-winning Formula One team Infiniti Red Bull Racing. They will have an opportunity to work alongside Infiniti engineers and will get to spend time at the automaker’s technical center in Cranfield, U.K. The new program is just the latest addition to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing partnership.
“We are looking for candidates who share our passion, and we open up an avenue for them to become an elite member of the Infiniti engineering team in the future.”
Recruitment for the program begins later this year. National selections across global regions will begin in May, 2014. The finalists will present ideas to a panel of senior technical figures from both Infiniti and Infiniti Red Bull Racing in July. Two winners will be announced at the British Grand Prix, and placements will begin in September, 2014.
The scholarship will include salary, accommodations and the use of a car.
