Sr. Scientist II, Analytical Science
Qualified candidates are expected to have knowledge and industry experiences (Ph.D. 10 plus years) in separation sciences. Candidates with extensive hands-on experience using various modes of analytical and large-scale preparative chromatographic technologies (HPLC and others) for purification and isolation of main components and trace impurities in novel ingredients, synthetic intermediates and final compounds and natural products are preferred.
Abilities in using LC/MS and other HPLC detectors for characterizations of unknowns and problem solving/diagnostic, as well as skills in MS-directed isolation and purification of complex natural and synthetic mixtures are strongly preferred.
Experiences in methods development, validation, and applications; skills in sample preparations, separation, characterizations, and quantitation of water-soluble large molecules (proteins, peptides, oligosaccharides, natural colors, emulsions, etc.) in various levels and matrices; and experiences in qualitative and quantitative analyses of natural and artificial sweeteners, vitamins, nutrients, natural products, and trace components are strongly desirable. Knowledge in advanced organic chemistry and synthesis is a plus. Ability in acquiring new knowledge and skills and building capabilities in other areas of analytical chemistry are also a plus.
Desire and abilities to collaborate, lead, and communicate with analytical team members and project leaders across functions are essential to this position.
Responsibilities of this position also include driving cross function collaborations; leading projects; communicating technical findings to stakeholders; developing methods, capabilities and strategies; and providing expertise consultation.
