Modern Electron is looking for talented graduate student interns in Electrical Engineering and related fields with experience in analog circuit design, power electronics, and instrument control. As a member of our R&D team, you will join an interdisciplinary group of physicists, chemists, and engineers working on experiments developing and testing Modern Electron’s cutting edge thermionic converter technology. You will work closely with a senior scientist or engineer on team-based development projects. This role involves hands-on work including designing, building, and testing custom printed circuit boards, building test stands, running experiments, qualifying hardware, and troubleshooting. Modern Electron’s R&D team is a tight-knit and data-driven organization, and our interns have regularly spearheaded projects and co-authored patents.
You must be a full-time enrolled student in a MS, or PhD program with a minimum 3.0 GPA. You must be able to complete a minimum of 10 weeks full-time commitment (40+ hours per week) and demonstrate a willingness to learn from others quickly on the job.
Modern Electron is a Seattle-area startup dedicated to developing breakthrough energy technologies. Our team is developing highly efficient, compact, and scalable solid-state thermionic generators with the ultimate goal of making electricity cheaper and far more universally available for everyone. Our technology is supported by over $20MM in venture capital funding and by 14 issued patents, with 20+ more patents pending in the US and internationally.
