The main function of a chemist is conduct qualitative and quantitative chemical analyses in laboratories for quality, process control or to develop new products or knowledge. A typical chemist is responsible for creating new products and processes or improving existing ones for clients.
- Analyze organic and inorganic compounds to determine chemical and physical properties, composition, structure, relationships and reactions. Improve and customize products, equipment, formulas, processes and analytical methods.
- Compile and analyze test information to determine process or equipment operating efficiency and to diagnose malfunctions.
- Write technical papers and reports and prepare standards and specifications for processes, facilities, products or tests.
- Prepare test solutions, compounds and reagents for laboratory personnel to conduct tests.
- Confer with scientists and engineers to conduct analyses of research projects and assist in the interpretation of test results.
- Responsible for assisting chemists/chemical engineers in completing laboratory experiments from small scale bench-top testing to larger application testing including:
- Preparation of formulations, test solutions, compounds or reagents to conduct testing
- Development and execution of appropriate methods, tests and procedures as directed by the project lead
- Experimental lab evaluation of product performance using a variety of methods for analysis
- Documentation of experimental data and observations in technical notebooks and preparation of reports with data analysis when necessary
- Work individually or in a team setting conducting formula development and analysis for cross divisional products
- Bachelor's Degree, or Higher, in Chemistry or a related discipline required
- 0 to 2 years of applicable laboratory experience
