Intern - Fall 2022

Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) has the fastest, lowest cost path to commercial fusion energy.

CFS is collaborating with MIT to leverage decades of research combined with new groundbreaking high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet technology. HTS magnets will enable compact fusion power plants that can be constructed faster and at lower cost. The mission is to deploy fusion power plants to meet global decarbonization goals as fast as possible. CFS has assembled a team of leaders in tough tech, fusion science, and manufacturing with a track record of rapid execution. Supported by the world’s leading investors, CFS is uniquely positioned to deliver limitless, clean, fusion power to combat climate change. To execute this plan, we are looking to add talented people to the team who are mission-driven and treat people well, improve our team by adding diverse perspectives and new ways of solving problems, have demonstrated exceptional results through a range of different pursuits, and have skill sets and experience that relate to this role.

We are looking for talented technical interns to join our team! CFS interns are highly valued within the organization and placed into meaningful and challenging roles.

Program Details:

  • 12-16 week internship program
  • 40-50 hours per week with set hourly salary based on year in school
  • Internship opportunities vary between onsite in Cambridge,MA or Somerville,MA, as well as a remote option. If an Intern is going to be on site, you will be responsible for your own transportation and housing
  • Opportunities available for college students in all levels of schooling from bachelor’s degree to PhD
  • Interns must be authorized to work in the United States for any employer

This team member will:

Specific project assignments and required technical skillset will vary based on the team’s existing need. Example projects for CFS technical interns include:
- Develop and qualify manufacturing techniques, processes, flow maps, and work instructions for superconducting magnet components and assemblies
- Work with design and equipment engineers to develop custom automation equipment
- Multiscale structural computational modeling of high-field superconducting magnets
- Develop electromagnetic optimization framework for sizing and placement of magnetic coils
- Characterization and testing of high temperature superconducting material to support magnet engineering projects

The ideal candidate will have most, if not all, of these requirements:

  • Enrollment in engineering or science programs at an accredited university or college
  • Proficiency in at least 1 of the following areas: CAD design, finite element analysis, multiphysics simulation, multiscale structural computational modeling, programming (MATLAB, Python, COMSOL, or Fortran), hardware fabrication, instrumentation, superconductors, or cryogenics
  • Hands-on experience through academic research, engineering project teams, machine shops, hackathons, or industry internships
  • Demonstration of exceptional results through a range of different pursuits
  • High self-motivation and drive to execute quickly with excellent troubleshooting/problem-solving skills

CFS team members thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and have demonstrated exceptional results through a range of different pursuits. We all tightly align with our company values of integrity, execution, impact and self-critique. As we grow, we are looking to add talented people who are mission driven and bring diverse perspectives and new ways of solving problems.

At CFS, we deeply value diversity and are an equal opportunity employer by choice. We consider all qualified applicants equally for employment. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, protected veteran status, religion, physical or mental disability, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, or any other basis protected by law, ordinance, or regulation.
