Chemistry Summer Internship 2017

Job Description

As a chemist, you will drive the next generation of gas technology by synthesizing materials and optimizing kinetics. As part of the close-knit NuMat team, you will get the opportunity to collaborate across functional and organizational lines.

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Synthesis of MOFs and related organic ligands based on established procedures.
  • MOF characterization and kinetic studies using ICP-MS, NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopy.
  • Reports directly to a Senior Chemist.

About You

  • You have undergraduate experience in chemistry.
  • You know standard organic synthesis and characterization techniques, including column chromatography, recrystallization, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for 1H and 13C nuclei, inductively coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS), and ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy.
  • You preferably have experience working with metal-organic frameworks.

About NuMat
