Infiniti is offering top graduates a Formula One engineering opportunity image

Via a new global talent search initiative, Infiniti is now seeking performance-driven engineering graduates for the chance to work on its Formula One program.

The ‘Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy’ will see two winning candidates complete a 12-month assignment with Triple World Championship-winning Formula One team Infiniti Red Bull Racing, based in Milton Keynes, UK.

They will have the chance to work alongside Infiniti engineers already based at the F1 team’s factory. In addition, they will also spend time at Infiniti’s nearby technical center in Cranfield, UK.

Johan De Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company, Ltd., said: “The Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy is a unique opportunity for top engineering talents from around the world. They can experience the highest levels of performance and precision in both Formula One and in road car engineering. 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 will open later this year. National selections across several global regions will begin in May 2014, putting applicants through a comprehensive selection process to assess their performance potential and innovative thinking. Finalists will present their ideas to a panel of senior technical figures from Infiniti and Infiniti Red Bull Racing in July 2014 with the two winners announced at the British Grand Prix.
