Preservation and Material Protection, a division of our clients' site, is a long-established world leader in devising and formulating new and highly effective compounds to protect the produce and products on which they rely. 
They have a parallel and equally important focus, which is to protect the health and well-being of the people that use and benefit from their products and the environments in which they are used, from initial application to consumption or disposal. 

General tasks & responsibilities: 

  • As part of the chemical laboratory team, you will provide service to their R&D group

  • You have a Master in Chemistry with proven experience in working in a laboratory environment
  • You have at least 3 years' experience and sound knowledge in several of the following areas: organic and inorganic analytical chemistry (UPLC, GC, ICP, XRF, IR)
