This role is specifically part of the Hazard Evaluation team of scientists. Tasked to investigate current and new chemical processes for thermodynamic hazards in order to support safe and efficient scale up to manufacturing. This is accomplished utilizing literature/internet searches and instrumentation specifically designed to evaluate thermal stability, heats of reaction, accumulation of reagents, gas generation, and chemical incompatibilities. Principles of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, chemical synthesis and a sound understanding of manufacturing techniques are utilized to support recommendations for safe operation. Work is expected to be accomplished in a fairly independent manner, with moderate supervision.
