Technologist, Materials Characterization
Novelis is the world leader in aluminum rolling, producing an estimated 19 percent of the world's flat-rolled aluminum products. We are the No. 1 rolled products producer in Europe and South America, and the No. 2 producer in both North America and Asia.
Novelis is also the world leader in the recycling of used aluminum beverage cans. Annually, we recycle around 40 billion used beverage cans - enough to circle the earth more than 100 times.
Novelis is globally positioned, operating in 11 countries with approximately 11,600 employees. The company reported revenue of $11.1 billion in its 2013 fiscal year.
We are currently seeking a technologist to support our activities in materials characterization, particularly electron microscopy, at the Novelis Global Research and Technology Center in Kennesaw, Georgia. With world-class people and state-of-the-art facilities, the center plays a leading role in developing and helping to implement innovative technology in close co-operation with Novelis’ worldwide operations.
With its two analytical scanning electron microscopes, one equipped with a focused ion beam, the electron microscopy laboratory at the center lies at the heart of our materials characterization capability. Work performed within this laboratory impacts multiple research and development projects through which we are seeking to develop superior aluminum sheet products for the automotive, beverage can and specialty markets. This technologist will play an important part in the efficient and effective operation of the facility by providing assistance to the main researcher responsible as well as other instrument users. This will include: application of a wide range of specimen preparation techniques; use of optical and electron microscopes to provide images or analytical data; and basic instrument maintenance and troubleshooting. The technologist will also give support as needed on other materials characterization activities, such as metallography. Subject to experience, training specific to the instruments and techniques we operate will be provided.
• Associate’s degree or equivalent experience in a relevant discipline, e.g., materials or electronic engineering technology.
• Experience of working as a technologist in a laboratory environment on the characterization and testing of materials would be an advantage.
• Ability to handle a mixed workload of project support requests, and to work and communicate well with others.
• Hands on, careful approach with strong attention to detail.
• Proficiency with computers and their application to collect, store and analyze data and images.
• Ability to conduct work with minimal supervision.
