The Job

The fuel cell team in the Material Engineering Division in Toyota Motor Europe is responsible for the research and development of new materials, production, equipment and analytical technologies for automotive Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells. Fuel cells generate electricity by an electrochemical reaction in which oxygen and hydrogen combine to form water. Unlike internal combustion engines, the fuel is not combusted, the energy instead being released electrochemically. This allows fuel cells to be highly energy efficient. Our fuel cell team aims at searching and integrating European unique and advanced technology into the final product and strengthen Toyota image in Europe. Your project We are now offering a position to identify and verify the technical feasibility of fuel cell technologies, especially considering the Membrane-Electrode-Assembly component within the framework of the EU project FURTHER-FC. The activity may include: Benchmark state of the art technology in the specific field Identify promising technology by cost and process analysis Assess and confirm the feasibility of the technology Manufacture real samples and test them in real conditions Identify technology gaps and issues, suggest solutions and improvement Your Profile Master student in final year (preferably: Chemical / Electrochemical / Materials Engineering) Good knowledge in electrochemistry and material science Flexible team player Open personality able to work in an independent way, hands-on mentality Basic computer skills: (MS Office and database) Fluent in English, any other European language is a plus We can only accept students with an EEA or Swiss citizenship (not requiring a work permit or visa to be eligible to perform an internship in Belgium)
