Research & Development Roles
Researchers design and perform the experimental work of day-to-day applied research, including generating and analyzing data. Their work is typically “hands on”, in a lab or pilot plant, at a clinical site, on a computer, or with consumers. These tasks are a vital part of the R&D process. Researchers typically get their project direction from an Engineer or Scientist.
Who is a fit for a R&D Researcher role?
Four-year degree, in most science disciplines. Demonstrated lab/research experience is preferred.
Engineers use their engineering and leadership skills to lead the innovation process. They apply scientific principles to solve significant technical problems and to deliver breakthrough products, processes, raw materials, and packaging technologies that delight consumers.
Who is a fit for a R&D Engineering role?
Master's or Doctoral degree degree in Engineering is required. Degrees in Chemical, Mechanical, Materials, or Bio-medical Engineering are preferred.
PhD Scientists use their fundamental research skills to advance our understanding and application of science. They work on exciting, cutting-edge technologies, and bring forward new technical insights based on their original ideas. The application of their work leads to products, processes, raw materials, and packaging technologies that delight consumers.
Who is a fit for a R&D Scientist role?
Master's or Doctoral degree in STEM disciplines, such as Life Sciences, Chemistry, Material Science, Engineering.
