? Communication with internal and external stakeholders for requirements gathering,
results reporting and field testing.
? Mentoring and directing the research of BS/MS level chemists and engineers.
? Competitive analysis to identify and validate new product opportunities.
? Literature reviews to determine the parameter space for sensing formulations and
technology expansion.

Requirements
? Doctoral degree in Chemistry (Organic/Physical) or a related discipline.
? Strong background in luminescent processes and techniques.
? Demonstrated aptitude in chemical and/or materials synthesis.
? Skilled in experimental design and results interpretation.
? Experience with statistical analysis tools such as Excel and/or MATLAB.
