Learn more at www.averydennison.com.Job DescriptionAvery Dennison is looking for an individual to augment its Polymer Science expertise by harnessing deep scientific understanding and creativity in the area of sophisticated nanostructured materials and mixtures to deliver novel functional material solutions and innovations. The position will be with the Materials Science and Characterization (MSC) Group, which primarily supports R&D activities globally at Avery Dennison's Mentor, OH location, chartered to support and resolve technical problems from long-term projects to urgent manufacturing and quality issues stemming from across Avery Dennison's global operations. Highly creative, agile and practical problem solving rooted in rigorous scientific fundamental understanding using experiments, theory and computations to correlate material structure-property-process-performance to improve product and process development activities is sought.Responsibilities:* Drive fundamental understanding and insights of polymeric/complex materials and phenomena particularly in polymer blends and alloys, nanostructured materials/composites and develop material structure-process-property correlations.* Use a combination of materials kinetics and thermodynamics, viscoelastic response/rheology and processing to solve problems and craft novel materials/constructions in areas of interest to AD. Provide hands-on technical leadership by developing highly practical programs to achieve project objectives including working in highly cross-functional teams.* Modulate material response using nano-structured materials and composites and processing to accomplish the same. Develop prototypes without the need for extensive experimentation or parameter space exploration. Stay abreast of the newest technology developments in novel materials and processes (meta-materials, additive manufacturing, innovative use of phase-separated morphology/chemistry) for applications in soft matter and functional films relevant to AD.* Work with rheology/spectroscopy/ physical testing & analytical/process/product development teams etc." to help surface relevant structure-property relationships and guide experiments and technical approach to acquire data for model parameterization and validation.* Interpret data, write technical reports, and communicate research activities and results with other divisional scientists in a high-quality, professional, and timely manner.Qualifications* Ph. D. in Polymer/Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering or a related discipline with a minimum of 7 years of industrial research experience is desired.* Direct experience and expertise supported by strong scientific publication/patent record in polymer blends and alloys, phase behavior in polymer mixtures and nanostructured materials/composites, viscoelastic response of polymeric materials, polymer processing and its use in crafting structure-property-process-performance correlations is an advantage.* Detailed expertise in the delivering polymer material innovations materials science of soft visco-elastic materials such as polymers, nanostructured soft materials and films. Detailed evidence of working with and leading highly multi-functional teams involving material formulators, process engineers and product development teams.* Direct hands-on experience in rheology, analytical techniques, prototyping and polymer and related processing technology is a decided plus. Computational skills in modeling response and using concepts of scaling behavior highly preferable.* Demonstrated ability to think critically and solve problems using the above mentioned subject areas and techniques. Be comfortable in spanning theory, experiments and production environments.* Good organizational and planning skills; ability to prioritize multiple tasks and projects simultaneously.* Effective written and oral communications, high level of motivation, initiative, and energy.* Ability to work independently as well as in a diverse multi-functional team and ability to interact optimally with both internal and external customers.IND123Additional InformationAll qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, protected veteran status or other protected status.
