Are you motivated by conceiving creative solutions to tough problems?

 

Are you searching for a role that leads to significant real-world impacts by applying your strengths in chemistry?

 

Are you passionate about collaborating with outstanding scientists and engineers to develop your own skills while contributing to critical challenges?

 

If so, we are looking for someone like you to join our team at APL.

 

We are seeking a Synthetic Chemist to help develop solutions to the diverse problems that we take on through chemical synthesis and characterization. You will apply your strong background in chemistry to develop solutions for the government's challenging problems. We need an ambitious and dedicated colleague who is excited to take a leadership and mentorship role and contribute to hands-on research. You will have the opportunity to work across a wide-range of research domains including catalysis, synthetic chemistry, polymer science, materials science, and more. In our group, your research will span disciplines, from synthesis of stimuli-responsive polymers to inorganic coatings for thermal management; from novel wearable sensor technology to energy harvesting and storage. We enable our team members to generate their own research ideas and publish their findings. At APL, we are a hardworking, multidisciplinary team that is committed to solving diverse problems while embracing risk with the goal of realizing creative solutions. Our team is passionate about building advanced prototypes that will define the future of materials. We strive to foster a collaborative environment with world-class expertise that achieves game-changing impact. Our APL team values integrity and innovative ideas that will ensure our nation's preeminence in the 21st century.
