GENERAL PURPOSE OF JOB:
Theprimary purpose of the role will be to support the manufacturing of intermediatesused by the operations group for Copper plating chemistry. This chemist will also be responsible formanufacturing samples of developmental chemistry used during alpha and betasite trials.
ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Ona weekly basis, this person will be running synthesis reactions and preppingsamples for key strategic customers and development partners. These tasks will require experience workingin a laboratory with standard glassware and handling chemicals.
Forthe reaction chemistry, a basic understanding of chemical hazards and reactionsis necessary for safe operation in the lab. Familiarity with rotary-evaporator, variable transformers, andthermocouples is useful to understand and control the reactions typically seenin this group. Samples for customers andpartners will require using calibrated glassware, small mixing vessels, and labscale filtration set ups.
Thechemist will need to collect data during their batches and experiments. He or she will need to be familiar withstandard practices in using a lab note book as well as familiarity with Excelin order to effectively share these results with other groups and teammembers.
Basic computer and writingskills required. Familiarity with operation of automated systems and datahistorians is desired.
Thechemist will support drafting of manufacturing procedures for new productsduring the transition of product to HVM. They must also pick up responsibilities for product commercialization tomake sure all of the applications supported by PPL are moving forwards. The chemist will be available to support theengineering department in the investigation of NCMR and Early Alerts thatrequire lab work as well as actively participating in FMEA drafting.
Pilot Production plays a key role to support productlaunch as well as product sustainability. A person in this lab must display a sense of urgency and customer focusin order to meet the customer needs ultimately resulting in new businessopportunities as well as maintaining current businesses that require a slightlymore complex chemical processes.
Thisposition will interact with operations, QC, engineering, shipping, R&D, andthe rest of PPL in a daily basis. Theyare response for making sure operations has the intermediate material they needto fill orders and must facilitate the shipping of new products to customersand collaboration partners.
Thechemist may have interactions with vendors and suppliers to make sure that thePPL group can run effectively with properly functioning equipment and propersupply of raw materials. The datacollected on new products will be shared with customers as they adopt the newprocess.
