Job Description:

The role

We are looking for a highly skilled research scientist with a background in electrochemistry and cell pilot production line. The role will explore, evaluate, and qualify new battery material and develop battery electrode designs. Evaluation and development of materials will include physical characterization, electrode process development and electrochemical evaluation of prototype cells. In this role, you will work closely with many organizations both internal and external to Tesla, taking new battery materials from early stage concept to mass volume production scale.


  • Design, develop, and execute characterization techniques for evaluating material properties of cathode and anode materials for Li-ion batteries.
  • Lead the battery electrode and process development new advanced Li ion battery designs
  • Analyze electrode performances and determine their relationship with materials and process parameters then take independent steps to iterate on process improvement to reach target cell performance specifications
  • Design experiments for evaluating performance of new materials being tested for Li-ion cell applications.
  • Document electrode processing parameters and communicate key learnings to cross-functional teams to enable transition towards production development
  • Work in the laboratory/shop environment with analytical equipment (CV, SEM, TGA, FTIR, DSC, optical microscope, data logger, thermal sensing devices, voltmeter, oscilloscope, etc.)


  • Strong academic and scientific background in electrochemistry or applied electrochemistry or electrochemical engineering
  • Ability to design and execute new material evaluation and define the correlation between material property and electrode performance
  • Broad knowledge and R&D experience on energy storage materials required
