Research Scientist – Analytical/NMR Subject Matter Expert

The Research Scientist - Analytical will play an integral role in providing solutions to product development challenges in support of product development research. Leveraging your expertise in analytical chemistry and materials science, you will identify sources of variation resulting from component interactions and provide mechanistic understanding for formulations.

Responsibilities include the following:

•       Analytical method development to support R&D efforts.

•       Design of experiments for the characterization of components and variations within them.

•       Support R&D in mechanistic understanding of  components (particles/polymers/surfactants).

•       Collaborate with external laboratories and universities to identify new characterization techniques.

•       Document research results for intellectual property.

To be successful in this role, your background should include:

•       Proven experience and demonstrable knowledge of analytical methods and characterization techniques for chemical structure elucidation, specifically NMR ( 1D and 2D).

•       Post-doctoral experience, in university or industry, with examples of independent research

•       Demonstrated ability to develop novel analytical methodology and techniques for complex, multi-dimensional problems

•       Results-oriented self-starter, capable of setting goals and then planning and executing complex research projects

•       Ability to balance multiple priorities

•       Flexible, highly creative, innovative, and committed to continuous learning

Education:

Ph.D. in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or Materials Science, or related degree/discipline is required.
