The Quality Control Team at Northvolt Labs in Västerås is looking for interns and/or Masters thesis students to join and reinforce our team on several projects. You will be working on various quality control analyses of raw materials and parts used as incoming material in the battery production process. Your work will be focused on analysis of battery electrolyte and electrodes. You will be trained to independently analyse and report analyses results using advanced instruments and equipment in the Quality Control laboratory and learn about the manufacturing process of battery materials and cells.

Main focus of the internship will be the development and validation of chromatographic methods for analysis of battery electrolyte. For a Masters thesis, several topics related to chromatographic methods are available and can be discussed in more detail with the candidate.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Carry out day-to-day incoming quality control inspections in the QC laboratory ensuring that specifications are met.

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.
