Rolling basis

Description

Schlumberger’s research laboratory in Cambridge is located two miles from the city centre, close to the majority of the physical science departments of Cambridge University. The laboratory hosts a number of interns; these young scientists make a valuable contribution to our research and it is our intention that they receive a superior training experience that increases their scientific and general professional skills.

We have one internship vacancy within the ‘Energy Storage’ group, in the area of battery characterization. The project will involve electrochemistry investigations of battery performance and use of a range of analytical techniques, such as Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscope – energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM-EDS), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), for characterization of new and aged battery components. The work will primarily be experimental and lab-based, carrying out experiments as well as performing the analysis and interpretation of the experimental data. You will work within a team of scientists as an integrated part of the team working on an on-going research project. 

The position would be suitable for those interested in applications of chemistry and material science in battery technologies.
