Bend Research is seeking a Research Chemical Engineer to perform research and development of pharmaceutical processes. Successful candidates will have strong understanding of fundamental theories and be able to apply them in an experimental setting.
Areas of expertise should include mathematical (steady state and dynamic) modeling, experimental design, and the analysis and clear presentation of experimental results. Experience with Matlab; control system design (MPC, optimization, automation hardware/software); computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software packages (e.g., FLUENT, Gambit); materials science; and latent variable modeling is also desirable, as is experience in an experimental lab environment. Strong communication skills are required due to the strong teamwork orientation of the company, the multidisciplinary nature of the work, and the customer interaction that is required. In addition, successful candidates must be able to learn quickly and work independently in a fast-paced environment. A sense of humor is essential.
M.S. or Ph.D Chemical Engineering
