The Role:

Thanks to a graduate internship grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry, we are currently looking for a person to join us for 3-months. We are looking for a Chemical Intern with a strong interest in electrochemistry who can apply themselves in a fast-paced commercial setting. The role will include developing analytical methods and scaling up our coating technology. You will have an opportunity to develop cutting edge catalytic technology which will revolutionise hydrogen supply world-wide.

The Company:

Oxford nanoSystems has spent ten years developing nanoFLUX®, a ground-breaking coating technology, which has demonstrated substantial enhancements in heat transfer capabilities. Recent improvements have led to new research towards alkaline electrolyser catalysts. The coating can also be implemented onto existing cathode designs and significantly increase the efficiency reducing the energy demand and bringing down the levelised cost of Hydrogen.

In Aug 2021 the UK government released its Hydrogen Strategy showing a need to increase hydrogen production to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels. Green hydrogen produced using electrolysers coupled to renewable energy systems will be a significant part of this economy and OnS is looking to be at the forefront of catalytic deployment.

We are looking for talented, motivated and self-directed people to join our informal, fast paced team.

Candidate Profile:

The ideal candidate will have a degree or masters in chemistry, any previous industrial experience is not necessary but may also be considered. They should be comfortable working both independently and collaboratively within a team of scientists, engineers and commercial people.

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Development of methods for analysing electrochemical nanocoating processes.
  • Working closely with the company’s technical/science staff in identifying and exploring opportunities to innovate development using range of materials.
  • Leverage experiences and technical ‘know-how,’ skills, and techniques from external sources.
  • Ability to conduct thorough research and document findings in well-organised manner quickly and efficiently.

Skills and experience they will gain:

  • Experience of surface coating techniques
  • Electrochemical techniques i.e potentiometry and voltammetry
  • Multiple analytical techniques i.e. SEM, MP-AES, IC

Experience within a start up and manufacturing environment, where there is a requirement to understand the technical process
