HGST, a Western Digital company and a major producer of hard disk drives, is seeking a chemist with NMR experience to join a team of materials scientists who support HGST's research, development, and manufacturing efforts in all aspects of hard disk drive technology. The position is located in our world-class Materials Laboratory in San Jose, California.
...Experience in general wet chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and strong NMR spectral interpretation sills are required. Sample prep/isolation strategies include careful mechanical teardown techniques, collection of sample via trapping of volatiles and/or extraction, concentration and analysis.
A background in 19F NMR is a big plus. Additional pluses would include background in polymer chemistry, structure, and properties, as well as background in thermal analysis (TGA, DSC, TMA, DMA).
Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry, Physical Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Polymer Science, or equivalent experience is required. Immediate availability is highly desired.
Subject to availability, entry-level Ph.D. candidates will be considered. However, relevant postdoctoral and/or previous industrial experience would be a plus.Sounds intriguing.
