Internship - Tyre Research and Modeling (FEA)


Company Profile

Established in 1872, Pirelli is among the world’s leading tyre producers. It is the only pure consumer tyre company that includes car, motorbike, and bicycle tyres as well as associated services.

Pirelli has a distinct positioning in high value tyres, characterised by an advanced technology with more than 2,700 homologations obtained, thanks to partnerships with the most prestigious car manufacturers in the world. In order to achieve the highest levels of performance, safety and containment of environmental impact, Pirelli has always been strongly committed to research and development, in which it invested 6.1% of revenue from high-value products in 2019.

Involved in motorsport since 1907, Pirelli has been the exclusive official tyre partner of the Formula 1™ World Championship since 2011 and has just renewed the agreement until 2023.



Main Activities:



There is an opportunity to join Pirelli’s research and modelling team to enforce the general understanding of tires, with special focus on the virtual modelling of rubber compound viscoelastic behaviour. During the stage different rheological approaches (e.g. Parallel Rheological Framework) will be investigated, with particular regard to their capability to predict the dissipated energy in the tyre.



Master degree in Industrial Engineering or similar

Knowledge of rheological models of rubber behaviour and their experimental characterisation techniques
Knowledge of Finite Elements methods (preferably Abaqus)

Knowledge of fitting and optimisation tools
Programming-oriented mind-set (Python or MatLab preferred)


Open-minded and able to work in Team
Demonstrate an innovative and flexible approach
Be highly self-motivated
