Praxair is currently looking for advanced process control engineers to

Engineering and Business organizations globally. As a result, they will be

disciplinary project execution teams. They will also be expected to stay 
abreast of new technology developments in their field of expertise, and 
actively contribute ideas for new R&D programs. They will also manage 
partnerships and development programs with external vendors and academia.
