Positions: Summer engineering intern
Location: Redwood City, CA
Innovation Area: Energy, Food, Water, Human Health and Environment Nexus
Position Type: TomKat Center-supported
Internship Term: 8 weeks (with possible extension, paid by the company)
Airity Technologies, Inc. develops and sells advanced power conversion technologies, including the world’s smallest high-voltage power supplies. Our circuit topologies provide more efficient and compact high-voltage DC and radio frequency sources. These have been applied to semiconductor manufacturing, aerospace, lighting, medicine, and research applications where high performance, low cost, and extremely small size and weight are important and enable new technologies. Airity also develops nanosecond-scale high voltage pulse generators for low-temperature atmospheric plasmas.
Airity leverages proprietary IP and leading research in power electronics from Stanford University. The company is based in Redwood City, CA, and is expanding through a combination of product sales and close collaborations with leading clients.
The intern will be an integral part of our team as we work on several projects related to new high voltage power products. The position may encompass a versatile set of responsibilities and including the design and implementation of electrical circuits and printed circuit boards, design and manufacturing of mechanical systems or end applications, or characterization and data analysis related to new prototypes.
Who Should Apply
We are looking for talented students eager to work on diverse problems. The typical candidate has a background in engineering or science fields but our previous experience with TomKat showed that the exact field matter less than a practical mindset, a willingness to take on the challenges of the moment, and an ability to get things done. Diverse candidates are highly encouraged to apply.
We prefer an engineering or science background with at least some knowledge in electrical engineering. Prior experience in power electronics, embedded systems, or plasma science is highly valued.
Electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering physics etc.
