CIC energiGUNE is the research center of electrochemical and thermal energy storage, a strategic initiative of the Basque Government. CIC energiGUNE was born in 2011 to generate excellent research in materials and systems for energy storage. The goal of CIC energiGUNE is to maximize the impact on results to the Basque business network through collaboration with universities, research centers, and companies.

If you want to join an integrated, enthusiastic, and multidisciplinary institute making high quality research and impactful contributions to the energy storage and sustainability fields this is your opportunity.

We are now offering internship opportunities in the field of electrochemical energy storage (EES) and thermal energy storage (TES) at our facilities. If you want to join a young dynamic team to learn from the world level scientists and use the latest equipment and technology, this is your opportunity!

Applications are open to master students of related areas: materials science, physics, chemistry, engineering… who wish to develop a career in research.
