We are a global technology company, driving energy innovation for a balanced planet.

At SLB we create amazing technology that unlocks access to energy for the benefit of all. That is our purpose. As innovators, that’s been our mission for 100 years. We are facing the world’s greatest balancing act - how to simultaneously reduce emissions and meet the world’s growing energy demands. We’re working on that answer. Every day, a step closer.

Our collective future depends on decarbonizing the fossil fuel industry, while innovating a new energy landscape. It’s what drives us. Ensuring progress for people and the planet, on the journey to net zero and beyond. For a balanced planet.


SLB's Research Center based in Cambridge is part of SLB global network of research and engineering centres. Our research center is a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment with state-of-the-art research and computing facilities. We work on applied research projects in the physical sciences to meet the current and future challenges of the industry.

SLB's Research Center based in Cambridge is a distinctive marquee-like structure dominating the High Cross site on the western outskirts of Cambridge, England. This spectacular building was completed in 1985 and the smaller second phase was opened in 1992. It has recently been classified as a Grade II listed building. Altogether, there are more than 930 m2; of laboratory space and offices for more than 100 scientists, technicians and domain experts.

The role

In this role, you will join the Devices & Systems team in the Energy Storage department at SCR. Your work will contribute to the development of novel redox flow battery chemistries, the majority of which will be lab-based, carrying out experiments towards screening redox-active molecules for application in flow battery electrolytes, including electrochemical characterisation, solubility testing, accelerated aging/stability testing, flow cell tests, etc.

The successful intern should be able to work effectively as part of a team, be enthusiastic and curious towards science and able to communicate effectively with peers.


  • Planning and performing experiments, under general supervision
  • Analyzing, interpreting, and presenting experimental data
  • Participating in regular meeting to discuss project progress
