The Imperia Batteries Division of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) is looking for a driven and hardworking intern student to support lithium-ion battery research and development programs for defense applications. The intern student will work closely with senior PSI staff involved in government and industry sponsored R&D programs focused on developing advanced materials, coatings, and lithium-ion cells. The candidate will gain a solid foundation in new and emerging electrochemical technologies and an understanding of the battery production process. The individual will be involved in day-to-day hands-on laboratory experimentation, data collection, and analysis.

 Imperia Batteries is developing a high energy density lithium metal battery for long duration applications. This project will result in a safe and high energy density battery architecture.

The responsibilities of the intern supporting this project includes:

 Assist in the development of advanced anode, cathode, separator and electrolyte components for next generation Li-based batteries.

  • Perform routine lab operations including preparing electrode slurries and separator rolls, building cells for electrochemical evaluation, and performing electrochemical tests.
  • Collect and analyze data gathered through electrochemical evaluations and post-operation physical analysis
  • Prepare informal and formal presentations to describe findings and next steps
  • Follow safety procedures and prepare standard operating procedures for new processes.

This internship may be most beneficial for students pursuing degrees in Chemical Engineering or Chemistry. 

US Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Residency is required.
