Research and Process Technology Chemist
On placement within the Blackley Research and Process Technology Team, you will be working on the synthesis and development of novel polymeric dispersants for paints, inks or plastics as well as performing synthetic experiments. By working alongside technical experts, you will learn how to effectively discuss results at meetings and quarterly check-ins.
As a student within the Applications Team, you will have the opportunity to gain experience working within applications testing for polymer synthesis and organic chemistry. You will be working on the development, manufacturing and performance testing of new paints, inks or plastics using novel dispersants. You will be working within a team of experienced chemists to perform experiments, keep an up to date laboratory note book, and learn how to communicate results at meetings. These results are then used to improve Lubrizol’s products.
Scientist in Paper & Textiles Applications
In this role you will be working on an exploratory project for the paper and textiles group, blending Lubrizol polymers with a range of additives to influence the properties of the final product. You will be working with talented chemists and be involved with saturating or coating substrates with experimental formulations, then evaluating physical and chemical properties. Findings from your testing will be used to develop structure-property relationships and new answers to customer problems.
At Lubrizol we have a range of placement opportunities available across a number of different disciplines. At our Hazelwood site, for Science and Chemistry students, we also offer lab based roles within Component Science, Applied and Strategic Research and Blend Test Services.
