Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Research Scientist II/III is expected to demonstrate
expertise in both the theoretical and practical aspects
of organic chemistry. Principal responsibility is the
synthesis, purification and identification of chemical
intermediates and target compounds. A major component in
the scientist's performance rating will be based on
  • Synthesize known compounds efficiently using
literature or in-house notebook procedures.
  • Synthesize new compounds by making appropriate
modifications of known methods or modification of
reaction conditions under minimal supervision
(design of new or alternate reaction sequences is
not a normal expectation, but will enhance the
performance evaluation of the scientist). The range
of reaction types handled capably by the scientist
will be significant.
  • Purify synthesized chemicals to an appropriate
degree. The scientist will be able to use the full
range of chromatographic, crystallization and
distillation techniques.
  • Analyze and identify compounds using a good range of
modern separation and spectroscopic techniques. This
will include interpretation of TLC, HPLC,
polarimetry, IR, and NMR spectra of moderate
  • Conduct literature searches for specific target
compounds, structures related to the target
compound, or to determine specific conditions for
compounds and reactions.
  • Organize work time so that several reactions are run
concurrently. Use time efficiently to produce target
compounds and perform other tasks.
  • Recommend and implement methods to increase the
quality of products and/or services.
