We are looking for a driven electrochemical testing intern to join us in our mission to contribute to a greener future. The role is a part of our excellent simulation team based in Västerås. By joining us, you will play a valuable role in the electrochemical testing and characterization of our battery electrode and electrolyte materials.

About the job At Northvolt, your responsibilities will include high quality sample preparation (coin and 3-electrode cells) and performing electrochemical testing for characterizing state-of-the-art electrode and electrolyte materials. Your role will also involve supporting simulation team with data analysis for electrochemical model parameter estimation such as exchange current densities, diffusion coefficients, electrolyte conductivity etc.

About the team
The cell-level simulation team is based in Västerås, Sweden. The team consists of five dedicated simulation engineers and is set to expand to nine within the next year. We have divided the team into electrical, electrochemical, thermal, and mechanical specializations but we collaborate regularly to tackle the multi-physics nature of problems in lithium-ion batteries. With this position, we are looking to extend our electrochemical simulation capabilities to meet the high demand for this topic.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • High quality cell sample preparation (coin, 3-electrode cells).
  • Perform advanced electrochemical testing of battery electrode and electrolyte material
  • Analyze and process experimental data for material property estimation

The person we are looking for is flexible, curious and eager to learn. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Sweden (to start with) and see the results of your work. Our organization values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. Qualities that we cherish are sense of quality, friendliness, grit and a sense of humor.

About the company

Northvolt makes green batteries for a blue planet. Affordable cells and high-quality battery systems. All manufactured with a record-low carbon footprint. Purposely built to provide Europe with the opportunity to switch to renewable energy – efficiently and entirely.

To accomplish this, we do things differently. We design, manufacture, and recycle everything under one roof. We even build our own factories. All this is incredibly challenging and requires us to think in unconventional ways. We’re constantly experimenting, learning and adapting to make batteries so great – they will one day make oil history.

Northvolt is growing fast. We’re staffing our international office in Stockholm, our R&D facility, Northvolt Labs, in Västerås, as well as our Gdansk facility for production of battery systems. We're also hiring for our gigafactory Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå, Sweden. We want to work with smart individuals from all disciplines. Strong individuals that truly want to make a positive impact on the future. Those of us already on board share a passion for our mission. We’re prepared to work hard in pursuit of excellence. We enjoy the ride and our main drive is to make a difference for real. As a team, we’re dedicated to thinking new, working hard and having fun.
