Research Analyst – Emerging Materials Technologies
Materials technologies are critical for transformational disruption across industries. Yet despite rising innovation potential, transitioning compelling advanced materials from the lab to successful commercial products is a consistent challenge. What’s more, large chemical and materials companies are under significant market pressure, which has led to an uptick in M&A and spin-out activity in recent years. To fully unlock the value and growth vectors enabled by emerging materials technologies, successful technical innovations need to be coupled with smart business models and go-to-market strategy. The Lux Research Advanced Materials service scouts and assesses materials innovations that enable better performance, lower costs, and improved sustainability. We support clients evaluate partnership, acquisition, and investment opportunities; learn from use cases in other industries; and identify and assess competitive threats and blind spots.
Lux Research is seeking candidates for a Research Analyst focused on emerging materials technologies. This is a great opportunity for an engineer/scientist looking to get out of a lab or development role and focus on bigger picture technology innovation and commercialization on a global scale.
The strongest candidates will be those who are looking to use their expertise to assess the commercial viability and roadmap for emerging technologies.
