We have a great opportunity for an Advanced Scientist to join the Global Research & Development (R&D) organization.

Informed by important market needs and new trends, you will develop additives for waterborne products through your ability to connect structure/property fundamentals with novel product functionality.

Your mindset for identifying problems and creating solutions will fuel a “reason to believe” for the unique benefits to be provided by Michelman materials in a way which will help accelerate the growth of the Package and Coatings segment.

Excellent problem-solving skills and creativity will be essential to your success as they will allow you to quickly screen new technologies and materials for fit both with the market and with Michelman.
