We are looking for a Chemical Engineer with a strong background in the design and scale-up of chemical and electrochemical processes. The Chemical Engineer will design novel chemical processes, perform experiments to study those processes, and use the results to design and commission pilot-scale equipment.
Design chemical reaction and separations processes, critically evaluating process alternatives and developing mass and energy balances.
Use bench-scale results and engineering design fundamentals to select and size equipment for pilot- and demonstration-scale operations
Independently design experiments, collect experimental data and analyze results to make decisions and inform design work.
Commission and troubleshoot new equipment to achieve engineering targets.
Interface with a research team to identify opportunities for improvement.
Ensure safe operation of all equipment and help develop safe testing procedures.
BS or higher in Chemical Engineering, Mining/Metallurgical Engineering, Chemistry, or equivalent.
3 years of experience in a process design/engineering role
Experience with equipment sizing, selection and commissioning, including working with vendors to specify P&IDs and order custom equipment
Experience with process design, including mass and energy balances, chemical reactors, separations equipment, and thermodynamic and fluid flow calculations
Experience analyzing experimental data, reaching conclusions, and communicating results
Strong familiarity with fluid power systems (pumps, valves, heat exchange equipment, etc.)
Ability to specify and build custom chemical-processing systems and troubleshoot equipment and related instrumentation.
Must be a "self‐starter" and follow tasks through to completion with little guidance.
Must be able to work in a team environment to collectively solve problems.
Strong communication and presentation skills, affable, with demonstrated maturity and professionalism.
Excellent interpersonal and communication skills to work effectively with a small, dynamic team
