Physical Chemist - Sensing Systems

PSI - Boston, MA

Physical Sciences Inc., located just north of Boston in Andover, is looking for a person with a background in optical, mass/ion mobility, or sorption-based sensor phenomenology, as well as related data analysis methods. The person should have a strong technical background in the development of detection systems with an interest in pursuing their own research interests while being a strong contributor to existing programs. A successful candidate must be able to work within a multi-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers, have high written and spoken English language proficiency, and have excellent analytical skills.

Candidates with a demonstrated record of accomplishment in the development of active and passive remote sensing systems or point vapor detection systems are encouraged to apply. Experience in the use of analysis methods for clutter suppression and signature extraction, and high speed signal processing is desired.

Candidates should have a strong record of conducting experimental laboratory research in these fields as demonstrated by a significant publications and presentations history. Proof of concept through the development of these systems is highly desired.

A PhD in Physical Chemistry, Physics, or Applied Physics with work experience beyond the PhD desirable.

US Citizenship is required.
