Our team is looking for a Research Scientist or Engineer for a position to investigate novel methods for vehicle exhaust analysis, particulate and gaseous emissions and the creative application of these to support new powertrain and aftertreatment systems development and meet new emissions testing requirements worldwide.


  • Pursue the discovery and development of novel methods to measure the increasing number of regulated and unregulated engine emissions at the higher sensitivities required by recent revisions to world-wide emissions standards
  • Investigate novel sensor-based miniature emissions measurement systems (gaseous and particle) for on-board vehicle use to fulfill increasing requirements for real-world emissions testing. Replicate real world emissions behavior in the laboratory for engine and aftertreatment development.
  • Derive and implement methods for quality assurance and control needed for the new developments in emissions measurement
  • Find creative ways to use the new emissions tools to help engine and exhaust aftertreatment engineers develop improved and lower-emitting vehicles

Basic Qualifications

  • Master Degree in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics or related field
  • 2+ years of experience in the sampling and analysis of gaseous and particulate engine exhaust emission (Graduate-Level coursework allowed)

Preferred Qualifications

  • PhD in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics or related field
  • Good teamwork skills
  • Knowledge / experience in advanced instrumentation for low-level pollutants: FTIR, GC/Mass spectrometry, laser based gas analysis, and aerosol analysis
  • Ability to use on-board vehicle portable emissions measurement systems
  • Proficiency in data analysis including statistical analysis
  • Mechanical skills to design and set up sampling and measurement systems in the laboratory and on vehicle
  • Computer skills to interface instruments and data collection software
