  • This position requires the successful candidate to be adept, hands-on chemist with extensive experience with small molecules and polymers, protein biochemistry, materials modification and characterization, and formulation development
  • Fundamental understanding of reaction mechanisms, kinetics, and catalysis
  • Understanding of materials synthesis and characterization, including TGA, DSC, FTIR, Raman spectroscopy, AFM, SEM, and mechanical testing
  • Understanding of structure-property relationships and utilization towards application development
  • Experience in reaction separations and purification
  • The ability to work in a team-oriented environment that embraces change, risk, and flexibility is needed
  • This individual must be capable of handling multiple projects / tasks at the same time
