An opportunity for a Lead Analytical Chemist to support of a process development effort. This is a critically important position since reliable data is a key to success as they work to develop a novel process. The position will include a significant amount of self-directed work and mentoring of junior employees. We just filled the more junior level Analytical Chemist position and the Executive Mgmt Team is now available to interview for this critical senior level position. (There were many schedule constraints the past month with investor reviews and other high level business but they are now ready to interview.) So, call me if this position seems familiar!

The company:

  • A highly collaborative professionally run organization with stated company values like honesty and integrity, and world renowned business partners who provide additional R&D support and process design assistance.
  • They are funded by large well-known companies who are interested in the final product. For example, an investor might be interested in a green source of plastic for making beverage bottles. Renewed funding has consistently been attainable via a stage-gate-like progress analysis. And as the approach the finish line for the first manufacturing runs, they are also adding additional sales staff to increase interest in their process technology.
  • Location & Cost of Living is potentially lower than expected (COL *103 +): HQ in suburban Rockland County NY with various types of areas to live in Rockland Country, with a low crime rate and several Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence and a lower than expected COL(120). -OR- Easy commute from *Orange Country NY which is more rural having a lower COL (103). -OR- For fun, live in NYC, but COL (180) is high, as expected. (By definition the Natl Average COL is 100. Much of the higher cost of living comes from housing costs which wont be as pronounced for renters!

Features and Benefits:

  • They make good salary offers. Expect a competitive salary plus stock options along with a nice benefits package including paid vacation & holidays, group medical & dental benefits (intended to attract top talent from larger corporations) plus annual employee reviews with raises retroactive to the 1st of the year. Ask me about some quick promotions within this organization!
  • As a small-company, there is no corporate red tape and the work culture is hands-on, business like but casual! As a ground-floor opportunity, all employees have a vested interest in the success.
  • Youll be working in partnership with some highly accomplished experts in Process Development and can expect a great atmosphere for fast tracked results. Plus, youll gain highly valuable contacts for future networking.

The Senior Analytical Chemist will lead analytical testing in support of process development. Youll become the go-to analytical instrumentation and methods expert in a highly collaborative company. The Chief Chemist was recently promoted to VP Research and is hoping to free up his time to think more strategically. (In other words, he`s swamped with work and very motivated to hire!) Our client is developing a novel chemical process. Your work will involve all-things-analytical: Hands-on testing, instrument trouble shooting, method development, procedure writing, selected ASTM and EPA testing, mentoring junior scientists & technicians, data analysis and formalizing data logging & data quality procedures.
