About the company
Natron Energy is a start up company based in Santa Clara, California. Natron is developing a completely new battery technology that offers longer cycle life, lower cost, and higher power and efficiency than existing batteries. These batteries offer extremely high performance for stationary applications requiring high cycle life. Natron is backed by leading venture capital firms and has support from ARPA-E.
Natron is seeking summer interns for battery engineering projects. These projects will include materials synthesis and processing, fabrication of battery electrodes and cells, cell testing and modeling, design and prototyping of new cell designs, design and prototyping of pack/modules, and development of battery management system software and hardware. Interns will be selected for projects requiring skill sets matching their general backgrounds (chemistry/materials, mechanical engineering, electrochemistry, electrical engineering, etc.). Each summer intern will be paired with a staff engineer mentor who will guide the intern’s work over the course of the summer. That work will include contributions to ongoing engineering projects and may also include a capstone project assigned individually to the intern.
