Location: Visalia, CA

Date Posted: March 12, 2014

Source: Sustainable Recruitment Concepts

Job Description & Qualifications

Summary Objective : To set and pursue practical strategies in chemical reaction engineering relevant to our advanced biomass processing concepts. The pursuit of these and additional novel process concepts must skillfully integrate mechanical aspects (e.g., biomass pretreatment), engineering fundamentals (e.g., heat and mass transfer; kinetics) and biochemical operations into both the experimental investigation and the resultant process concept specifications.

Education Requirements : BS (minimum) in Chemical Engineering; M.S. preferred. Bio-processing focus in education and experience components is strongly preferred.

Work Experience Requirements : 3+ years related industrial development experience (with MS); primary component in pilot- or demonstration-scale operations. Initial responsibilities and compensation will be commensurate with combined education and experience.

Core competencies :

reactor design and scale-up, including heat/mass transfer and material addition

applied biochemistry; bioprocessing operations

applied chemical reaction kinetics

complex experimental design, assessment, and scale-up

statistically-informed data analysis

complex bioprocessing equipment design and specification

separations technologies

R&D planning, documentation, and presentation

process simulation model development and testing

process de-bottlenecking analysis

technology and knowledge transfer

effectiveness within complex, multidisciplinary teamwork dynamics

Responsibilities :

Development and experimental investigation of advanced reactor design process concepts involving biochemical kinetics, reaction engineering, and heat and mass transfer elements

Design, execution, and interpretation of pilot-scale experiments in integrated biomass pretreatment and conversion processes

Quantification of process potentials in terms of heat and mass balances, conversions in scale-up, process economics implications, and environmental impact benefits.

Engineering the scale-up of key biochemistry steps: strain optimization, propagation protocols, and targeted enzyme expression and/or metabolic pathways

Optimization of process performance in terms of RTL (rate, titer, and yield) and energy integration

Development of process capabilities in protein harvesting, separations, and purification to levels needed for commercial deployment

Specification of bioreactor conditions to optimize performance, scaling from liters to 100s-liters

Development and deployment of control strategies and systems around key operational parameters

Development of strategic intellectual property holdings

Specification of basic data packages for manufacturers; collaborate with these partners to drive deployment of products
