This is an exciting opportunity in Mississauga, Ontario for a Research Scientist.
This applied science position applies chemical principles that create and develop product functionalities which are integrated and sold into Cummins’ products. The position involves the research, design, analysis, testing and failure analysis of chemical based products, including catalysts, substrates, sensors, batteries, and fuel cells.
Your impact will happen in these and other ways:
Participates in the design, improvement, outsourcing, selection, evaluation and testing of PEM fuel cell and PEM Electroyzer stack and their subcomponents.
Plans and monitors performance test and durability test of PEM fuel cell and PEM Electrolyzer stack.
Processes and reviews test data, generate test reports, and presents test result internally and externally.
Collaboration with suppliers of stack subcomponents, including MEA, GDM, BPP, gasket, and hardware.
Provides technical support to sub-system and system testing
Conducting literature and patent research for the latest technology development and breakthrough.
Performs routine diagnostics and maintenance on the test components and equipment.
Provides independent leadership of smaller business impact projects or ownership of complex components, products, systems or services with greater elements of ambiguity over the senior or lead engineer level and with full accountability to the project team.
Delivers independent execution of established and emerging work processes and systems, while still developing technology or product knowledge.
Leads the development and improvement of work processes and systems across a functional discipline area within a business unit.
Coordinates and directs work amongst technicians and temporary student employees, assists in the transfer of knowledge to lesser experienced engineers through either indirect (scope of influence) or direct management of a small, local group of engineers.
Provides support and guidance to influence technical direction within a project team and continues to develop proficiency in the competency areas critical to success in the role (see “competencies” below).
Operates as a recognized specialist in a discipline or product area within the immediate team.
Skills and Experience Required:
Chemical or Electrochemical Performance Testing - Designs tests measuring chemical transformation of species, selectivity, electric yield, response to chemical and physical environments in order to determine performance, durability, or state of health of chemically or electrochemically active components; examines and interprets test data using analysis methods to draw conclusions that influence hardware and controls design decisions and to provide information for computational tools development.
Characterization of Chemical Systems - Designs and conducts tests of physicochemical properties, for example morphology, acid-base and redox properties, diffusion characteristics, impedance behaviors, solubility, and chemical poisoning, in order to aid in diagnostics and prediction of performance and health of chemically active components.
Accelerated Aging Testing and Analysis - Designs and constructs laboratory equipment to simulate various aging exposures relevant to practical applications of active chemical components, including thermal cycling, chemical poisoning, and physical masking.
Simulation of Chemical Systems - Determines chemical or electrochemical performance of chemically active components and systems via numerical modeling; estimates conversion, selectivity, electrical yield, resistance, and state of health via numerical computations to evaluate and guide hardware and controls design decisions.
System Capability Engineering - Identifies system capability and risks through analysis or experimental testing of the system, sub-system, or super system in the context of its environment; negotiates and verifies requirements against capability to guide project scope and system development accordingly; assesses legacy system versus proposed new system solution capabilities and makes decisions as to how best to achieve system capability with consideration of stakeholder trade-offs.
Product Problem Solving - Solves product problems using a process that protects the customer; determines the assignable cause; implements robust, data-based solutions; and identifies the systemic root causes and recommended actions to prevent problem reoccurrence.
Decision quality - Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward.
Drives results - Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.
Communicates effectively - Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences.
Builds networks - Effectively building formal and informal relationship networks inside and outside the organization.
Resourcefulness - Securing and deploying resources effectively and efficiently.
Manages complexity - Making sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to effectively solve problems.
Minimum three to five years in a related field.
Experience with PEM fuel cell or PEM Electrolyzer.
Previous work experience as an electrochemical engineer.
Required Education, Licenses or Certifications
Bachelor of Science (or equivalent degree) in Engineering required. Graduate degree preferred.
Compensation and Benefits
Base salary rate commensurate with experience. Additional benefits vary between locations and include options such as our Retirement Savings Plan, Pension Plan, Medical/Dental/Life Insurance, Health Savings Account, and a full complement of personal and professional benefits.
