Who are we?
Emvolon is a Venture Backed, MIT spin-off revolutionizing distributed chemical manufacturing by reimagining automotive diesel engines as miniature chemical plants. This allows converting otherwise wasted, stranded energy resources at the source by using economies of mass production where economies of scale do not apply. Applications include biomass to power and renewable power to ammonia synthesis for long term energy storage and sustainable fertilizer production as well as gas to liquids for flare elimination
Opportunity: Are you interested in building mechanical and electrical test systems in a research laboratory? Do you have prior experience working with hand tools, machining equipment, welding, or electrical systems? Ever wonder what it is like to work in a technology startup? If you answered YES to any of the above, then this opportunity may be for you! Project-based work ranges from design and fabrication of electrical and mechanical systems, to experimental setup, data acquisition, and analysis. Opportunities provide a great mix of handson work in the lab (fabrication, machining, reactor testing. Project-based work for this coop will be tailored to specific interests and backgrounds of the candidate. This is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on engineering, design, and analysis experience in an industrial research environment.
