Duties: The candidate will review formulations in each final reagent as well as document findings within our business systems. The candidate must be able to do basic chemical calculations like weight/volume, volume/volume, molarity, and have experience with a business system like SAP.
Takes day-to-day ownership of project, typically with oversight Consistently takes initiative in technical areas (e.g. initiating next steps, determining solutions to problems). Leverages literature and colleagues for ideas, solutions and feedback Advanced theoretical understanding of scientific principles within own discipline.
Breadth of expertise across multiple projects or multiple disciplines. Ability to handle new tasks or operations without guidance and then train others (e.g. advanced instrumentation, advanced software, new experimental methods) Ability to solve problems at interfaces to other functions Analyze and drive decisions from controlled and complex experiments (including DOEs).
Determines methods for data analysis (e.g. what metrics/statistics will be used in analysis).
Draws upon deep knowledge base to identify issues and suggest solutions. Troubleshooting of own experiments, and may do so for others.
Able to lead investigation and resolution of technical problems within own discipline, with oversight.
Sets standards and processes for themselves and others in experimental design, data collection and analysis Identifies creative solutions to needs or technical issues or process challenges (project-level) Able to identify areas for innovation and suggest new ideas Influences decisions impacting their work.
Demonstrated ability to produce publication-level results (e.g. posters, external presentations, publications, invention disclosures/patents).
Plan activities of allocated project scope with guidance. Prioritizes activities/ assignments of supporting team members while maintaining project schedule.
Ability to set experimental strategy (how to break a complex problem down into pieces and experiments).
Emerging ability to define technical requirements for products (considering robustness, scalability and cost).
Execution of defined scope, including ownership of deliverables within that scope, possibly with guidance.
Efficient and high level of performance.
Able to make appropriate modifications of experimental or data analysis execution in real-time.
Identifies areas for efficiency improvements and takes action.
Able to identify risk and provide recommendations for risk mitigation in area of responsibility and at critical interfaces to other teams.
Able to track COGS and associated project expenses, and make proposals for trade-offs Involves others in decision-making.
Communication of observations, technical findings and progress in multi-functional group setting (also, to those without technical background).
