Wat ga je doen
As Scientist Analytical Chemistry polymers you will use your expertise to translate the needs of our technology teams in the field of polyolefin development into analytical deliverables and to develop advanced solutions.
The equipment in scope includes a number of High-Temperature SEC systems with multiple detection techniques such as IR, RI, DV and MALS, advanced CCD and MMD fractionation techniques for polyolefins such as HT-2D-LC, aTREF, CEF, pTREF and pMMF
- You will provide technical and personal leadership in the area of molecular characterization.
- You broadly understand and apply analytical expertise across the spectrum of polyolefin R&D activities ranging from synthesis, formulation and compounding, to final application.
- You will apply a range of molecular characterization techniques such as HT-SEC and fractionation to problem solving in polymer R&D.
- You will participate in cross-functional and global safety, quality improvement and knowledge exchange programs.
