|Position Title: ||
Energetic Materials Evaluation and Engineering Research Scientist
Description of Duties:
The research scientist position requires a strong background in chemistry and expertise specific to energetic materials evaluation and engineering to work on health and safety projects specific to hazard modeling in semiconductor manufacturing environments. There is increased use of poorly characterized materials in manufacturing environments and pro-active reaction engineering research is needed to prevent energetic reactions.
The research scientist duties will include, but not be limited to: work with environmental engineers from semiconductor manufacturing companies to model new processes (e.g., MOCVD, ALD), evaluate existing processes and understand past energetic events. This position will work with industry partners to collect and analyze incident history data related to uncontrolled chemical reactions. This person will design/develop characterization methods for evaluating hazardous properties of pyrophorics, hydrides and organometallic precursors used in semiconductor manufacturing with an objective of developing best practices for mitigation techniques. This person will also present to industry and academic partners, compile reports, and help write grants and manuscripts related to project. Other reasonable duties as assigned.
PhD in chemistry or chemical engineering or related disciplines from a college or university accredited by US Dept of Education or other internationally recognized accrediting organization. Expertise in reaction monitoring, energetics, metal organics, chemical reaction engineering, and chemical hazard evaluation required. Evidence of past research productivity is required. Candidate must be a self-motivated, energetic, organized and efficient scientist with strong communication skills. In addition, the ability to work with industry partners, to work in laboratory, computational and industrial settings is desired. Training in academic, government, semiconductor, explosives, petroleum or pharmaceutical industry settings is desired. This part-time to full-time position (depending on candidate) has extensive networking opportunities; the possibility for expanded academic or industrial roles is inherent to this position. This position is contingent on the satisfactory completion of a background investigation; this position may require annual background investigations. Candidates must address in their applications their ability to work with culturally diverse populations. This position is contingent on the satisfactory completion of a background investigation; this position may require annual background investigations.
