  • Bachelor or Doctor’s Degree in Physics, Material Science, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or relevant field.
  • Relevant experience in industries producing or utilizing plastics, adhesives, or composites for outdoor products.
  • Experience in prototyping and material testing (optical, FTIR, DSC, DMA, tensile, fatigue).
  • Experimental and data analysis software skills (Matlab, Python, JMP).
  • Ability to identify and collaborate with a team environment.
