Senior Research Engineer/Scientist
Location - Newark, CA (San Francisco Bay Area)
MTR is a global leader in the development of novel membrane materials and processes that address some of the world's key separation challenges. For example, over the past decade, we have brought an innovative membrane carbon capture approach to the final stages of field demonstration to help solve an environmental crisis. The MTR research team has a long track record of scientific excellence and successful commercialization of new products. We are looking to add energetic individuals interested in joining this creative environment.
The Senior Research Engineer will work with a multi-disciplinary team in the development and support of new membrane products. Duties will include planning and executing work plans, fabricating and characterizing membranes, analyzing laboratory data to understand underlying phenomena, presenting findings at group meetings, writing project reports and new research proposals, developing membrane and module scale up procedures, and supporting operation of field demonstration units.
A PhD degree in Chemical Engineering or a related discipline is required with a preference for specialization in membrane science. No prior work experience is necessary, but 1-5 years in a relevant field or job function is appropriate for this position. The successful candidate will possess excellent problem solving skills, and be an effective written and verbal communicator. An ability to work closely with other team members and project partners outside MTR to achieve group goals is a must.
