You should have a PhD in Organic Chemistry, or alternatively a Chemistry degree coupled with relevant work experience.  You must have a track record in the design and successful synthesis of novel organic molecules to meet a technical need and be able to add value to our research with the successful development of new materials and composites with high thermal conductivity.

With outstanding interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate technical concepts to all audiences, you will be self-motivated and proactive, with creative and inventive problem-solving abilities.  You must understand and thrive on the demands of driven industrial research and be able to demonstrate that you work with the same drive and passion as all our teams.
