The Dow Chemical Company is seeking to hire a new university graduate as
a full-time research engineer in the Chemometrics group in the
Manufacturing Analytical Technology Center, located in Europe,
preferably Terneuzen, The Netherlands, starting in 2011.  Chemometrics
is a fast growing area in Dow and the primary focus of this job is to
apply process chemometrics (multivariate statistical analysis tools) to
troubleshoot complex manufacturing problems and to develop technology to
address manufacturing issues.  This role will also require broad
problem-solving capabilities through collaboration with other
manufacturing and R&D personnel.  The applicant will need to be capable
of managing multiple projects in parallel and learning new data analysis
techniques promptly.

Applicants should apply through http://www.dow.com/careers/apply.htm
<http://www.dow.com/careers/apply.htm> , for job # 1004628 (in Europe).
Please also submit resumes to Mary Beth Seasholtz ([log in to unmask]
<mailto:[log in to unmask]> ).  We will have representatives at the
Scandinavian Symposium on Chemometrics (SSC12) in Denmark, June 7-10
2011.  If you are interested in applying for the job and will be
attending the conference, please make arrangements with Mary Beth
Seasholtz to introduce yourself in person!  All resumes should be
received by July 1, 2011.

The key job responsibilities include:

	*	Troubleshooting manufacturing process and quality
problems by incorporating chemistry and engineering knowledge into
multivariate data analysis.
	*	Consultation with internal Dow manufacturing clients to
define and meet their needs in multivariate statistical data analysis to
improve process and product quality.
	*	Performing research and leveraging emerging technology
in multivariate statistical analysis into Dow. 

The ideal candidate will have: 

	*	EDUCATION: Ph.D. (with no industrial working experience,
1 year post-doc is allowed) in Chemical Engineering or closely related
field with a strong background in multivariate statistical analysis.
	*	TECHNICAL: Proficiency in chemometric techniques (such
as PCA, PLS) applied to manufacturing data.  In addition, familiarity
with current commercial and academic software (such as SIMCA, JMP), and
computer languages (such as MatlabTM, VBA) is necessary.  
	*	TEAMWORK:  Must be able to work effectively as a team
member in a self-directed team environment globally.  Must be able to
translate and communicate statistical results to non-statistics experts.
Demonstrates leadership skills, and actively participates in team
meetings.
	*	INITIATIVE: Overcome obstacles (capital, resources,
time) to achieve results.  Self-driven to actively generate, pursue and
complete projects.  Identify value-creation opportunities to apply
chemometrics.
	*	LEARNING: Interested and effective in learning new data
analysis techniques through internal research collaboration, workshop,
and journal reading.
	*	VALUE CREATION: Must be able to recognize opportunities
and interact directly with clients to deliver effective solutions.
