Job Description

Remora is hiring an Adsorption Scientist Intern who will onboard and support talent across our fast-growing company, all while helping to tackle the defining challenge of our time. 
We’re a 50-person climate tech startup based in Detroit, MI. We build a device that captures a semi-truck’s carbon emissions directly from the tailpipe. We sell the CO2 to end-users, and split that revenue with our customers, so our device pays for itself in just a couple years. 
We’re piloting our technology with some of the largest companies in the world, including three of the Fortune 10, and we’ve raised multiple rounds of funding from leading investors like Lowercarbon Capital, Union Square Ventures, and First Round Capital.

Responsibilities

  • Adsorption and regeneration
  • Validate uptake and recovery of carbon dioxide and/or water vapor from adsorbent materials
  • Design regeneration processes that limit cycle timing, regeneration energy, and/or temperature swing
  • Investigate novel regeneration methods
  • Optimize mass transfer to increase uptake, through models and experimentation
  • Optimize heat transfer to increase recovery
  • Support the technology team in the development of device hardware and processes that control and optimize gas separation and purification

Requirements

  • Current enrollment in a college engineering program majoring in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Environmental Engineering, or similar

Here’s what we value

  • You want to join a fast-paced, fast-growing startup.
  • You care deeply about reducing carbon emissions and building power for the historically excluded communities that will be most effected by those emissions.
  • You fully own projects, and you identify and solve problems through completion.
  • You adapt to change, and you appreciate failures as learning opportunities, constructively sharing them with your teammates.
  • You improve your teammates’ performance through collaboration. You consistently pursue personal and professional growth for yourself and your teammates.

Logistics

  • Location: Wixom & Livonia, MI
  • Start date: Summer 2023
  • COVID-19: Remora requires all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Applicants are required to submit proof of vaccination prior to beginning employment. Appropriate COVID-19 safety precautions are implemented in the workplace.

Salary and Benefits

  • $20/hour for undergrads, $26/hour for graduate students
  • Paid time off based on hours worked
  • Employee development and mentorship.

Climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color, so we’re looking for candidates deeply committed to reducing emissions and to racial justice. People who identify as Black, Indigenous, person of color, female, non-binary, trans, gender non-conforming, or any other identity underrepresented in startups are especially encouraged to apply.
