Capacitor Sciences (CSI) is searching for a Scientist whose exceptional expertise and experience will lead them to conduct discovery projects in the field of new energy materials. Capacitor Sciences Inc., is a subsidiary of Blue Solutions (a Bolloré Group company), specializes in the research and development of new materials for next gen energy storage.
The Scientist will bring his/her expertise and experience in the synthesis of new materials, nano-composite formulation, and film characterization to independently conduct new discovery projects. Reporting to CSI's R&D leadership, the Scientist is responsible for new materials related research and development for the synthesis of new organic materials, nano-composite formulation and films preparation.

A Day in the Life of a Scientist:
  • Design, propose, and present new candidate materials to molecular design committee
  • Plan and execute organic synthesis and polymer synthesis projects
  • Plan and execute nanoparticles surface modification and core-shell nanoparticles preparation
  • Work in the organic chemistry laboratory to produce and purify organic materials, polymers and nanoparticles through grams to kilograms scale reactions
  • Analyze and interpret analytical data to elucidate the material structure and purity
  • Independently develop and validate analytical methods to determine property and purity of CSI materials
  • Develop specialized scientific techniques to advance projects at all phases of development of CSI materials
  • Advance research techniques, evaluate and optimize the nanocomposite formulations for thin film coating
  • Perform thin film characterization and analysis to study the structure-property relationship of CSI films

All Scientists must have the ability to perform the following:
  • Provide expert technical support to other team members to plan and execute the material design, synthesis, nanocomposite formulations, coating processes and film characterization
  • Perform the synthesis of CSI materials, nanocomposite formulations and film characterization in lab safely by following all safety protocols
