BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS & COMPOSITES DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST
MS degree in Materials Science with a specific focus area of materials for building and construction
PhD is preferred.
Ten yearsâ experience related to non-metallic materials science in industrial and non- industrial fields, including business planning and at least seven years in composite materials for building and construction applications.
Experience with techno-economic evaluations, and software and simulations related to composite materials is preferred.
Able to publish papers in highly recognized journals, present research outcomes in international events, and grant patents based on novel research results.
Familiar with international standards used for composites materials in B&C, composite, and manufacturing processes (e.g., pultrusion) used for the high-volume production of composites products used in B&C.
Duties & Responsibilities:
Working with authorized engineers, research organizations and manufacturers to identify technical gaps and challenges that hinder the massive adoption of polymer composites in the B&C sector and identifying routes of developments. This will include, conducting technical feasibility studies, designing R&D strategies, launching research projects, leading lab technicians and junior scientists, and engaging external partners to advance the technology readiness level of the targeted development.
Project planning, execution, implementation, and data analysis, as well as liaising with stakeholders to ensure seamless integration with ongoing efforts associated with non-metallic initiatives.
Building in-house capabilities across multiple disciplines including mechanical properties assessment of composites and polymer characterizations.
Training junior scientists and engineers while remaining current with engineering and scientific technological developments, such as cost-effective high polymer content rebars and polymers in concrete solutions.
