The Faraday Undergraduate Summer Experience (FUSE) internship programme provides internships for undergraduate students to enable them to undertake paid eight-week placements with battery researchers from partner organisations.

Goals of the internships are:

Participating institutions construct project research topics that connect to the Faraday Institution research projects and select interns on a competitive basis from a diverse pool of applicants. Working alongside a supervisor, students have access to other research scientists. Interns are invited to join cohort video calls on a range of topics. At the end of the summer, and with the assistance of their supervisor, each intern prepares a poster detailing their scientific research project.

A number of FUSE interns have successfully gone on to undertake a PhD in battery research or work in the battery sector.

Discover more by reading the testimonials of FUSE 2023 students and looking at their scientific posters.
