Position Responsibilities:

Advanced materials is the portfolio of chemical businesses with research centric scientists located in Buffalo NY (Fluorine), Sunnyvale CA and Spokane WA (Electronic Materials), Colonial Heights VA and Morristown NJ (Resins and Chemicals), and Seelze Germany (Specialty products). Some scientists are also located in research centers in Gurgaon, India and Shanghai, China. Support is also needed for the various chemical engineers at Advanced Materials production facilities (Metropolis, IN, Hopewell, VA, Chester, VA, Philadelphia, PA) and the Product Stewardship group in Morristown. The largest number of research scientists are in Buffalo, NY.

The portfolio of chemistry in Advanced Materials is across several disciplines of chemistry and some chemical engineering. Disciplines include:

Organic (small carbon chain acyclic compounds with fluorine, chlorine, caprolactam)

Inorganic (organo metallics, ammonium sulfate, complex salts; lanthanides, metallurgy)

Polymers (PCTFE, UHMWPE, nylon, PE wax)

The position is responsible for searching and synthesizing information from primary and secondary sources into intelligent information used in strategic decision making for R&D activities of the Advanced Materials businesses. This could be information supporting New Product and process Development, market information, intellectual property, acquisition activities or other business functions. The researcher will be responsible for developing standard request protocols, prioritizing outstanding items, and delivering accurate information on a timely basis.

The searcher for advanced materials should be well rounded in many areas of chemistry. They must be skilled at researching a multiple ingredient composition search as well as very skilled in scientific areas of search. Know when to ask questions and be prepared to have more than one round of search attempts. The scope of the search (due to the complexity) may change so a new search attempt is needed.
