The candidate will use in-depth understanding of material science/polymer science to lead material development in collaboration with strategic suppliers. The candidate will derive and maintain a fundamental understanding of first level principles in product, process, and material interactions that drive the development and maintenance of quality performance-based specifications. The candidate will also lead fundamental research into various material technologies (polymers, metals, biomaterials, etc.) to determine material properties that will result in superior product offerings. This position includes the scale-up and commercialization of technical solutions for the business as well as to own and support the development of global and regional supply as the business requires. This position also involves the creation of computer based models, to understand system interactions and modes of failure to support rapid prototyping and screening and increase process and material robustness.
