Addionics is looking for an intern to join our R&D group in London to support battery development. Specifically, the intern will optimise slurry processing and electrode manufacture for a wide variety of electrode chemistries, contributing to a wider team effort to make and test battery prototypes.

This is full time position with a strong laboratory focus, where the intern is expected to apply chemistry and materials processing knowledge to manufacture electrodes for batteries. This is a hands-on role in a manufacturing environment, and the intern will work efficiently, confidently and skilfully to deliver electrodes to team members to meet internal and external deadlines while complying with all health and safety regulations. This role requires on-site presence throughout the work week, i.e. we cannot enable working-from-home arrangements.

We particularly welcome applications from minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and candidates with disabilities to improve our representation within these groups. Addionics believes that having greater diversity will lead to better results for our company and our clients.

Experience & qualifications:

• Background in chemistry, materials, or a related area (BSc or MSc level). Recent graduates or career resuming candidates are welcome.
• Ability to solve practical problems independently
• Any experience of manufacturing is desirable: mixing, coating, drying, etc.
• Background on battery technology is desirable but not essential


Dexterity in the laboratory, enthusiasm, chemical intuition, scientific literacy, attention to detail, ability to organise and summarise results as well as ability to read manuals and trouble shoot equipment. Ability to execute systematic studies, to analyse data and implement the conclusions.

What we offer : competitive salary. At the end of the period, the intern is expected to have a full understanding of Li-ion batteries in general, the different chemistries, the typical and the manufacturing methods for electrodes. They will be trained to use a range of characterisation and processing equipment used to fabricate electrodes for batteries. The initial project length is 6-months, but we will consider making this role permanent with a suitable salary at the end of the internship for a candidate of sufficient quality.

This internship is supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
