Organic Chemist

Modern Meadow

As we continue to grow we are seeking to hire an organic chemist.


- Research and develop chemistries that can enable construction of engineered ZoaTM bioleather materials

- Characterize reaction rates, conversions and cross-linking densities

- Analyze experiments and reactions using analytical methods such as DSC, FT-IR, UV-vis, GPC, etc.

- Collaborate with material scientists and other cross-functional teams to identify the right formulating chemistries based on the application’s target properties

- Assist the team leader in establishing project objectives related to formulation workflows and provide estimated timelines

- Coordinate with associate researchers in planning experiments and organize their work to meet the project deadlines

- Communicate the progress and provide updates in the form of technical reports and presentations in group meetings

- Maintain lab safety and provide safety guidance to associate researchers in the lab


- Ph.D. in organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, or other related science, with 2-5 years of relevant industrial experience

- Be well versed in the theory and practical hands-on application of common organic chemistry

- Fundamental understanding of common reactive crosslinking systems

- Knowledge of polymer synthesis and structure-property relationships

- Familiarity with material macroscopic property analysis such as thermal, rheological and mechanical

- Knowledge of coatings and catalytic chemistry would be a plus

- Demonstrated ability to plan experiments and reach data-driven statistically-significant conclusions

- Ability to work in fast-paced environment and manage multiple tasks simultaneously
