  • Develop and/or utilize tools to model the thermodynamic properties of prospective refrigerants.
  • Conduct analyses to evaluate and screen refrigerant candidates for further development.
  • Direct laboratory testing of units to determine performance of candidate refrigerants in real equipment. Process data to fully understand and interpret performance characteristics.
  • Prepare reports for internal dissemination of information. Prepare and present technical papers for external audiences to support the company's strategic directions.
  • Support other technology areas requiring a foundation in thermosciences, especially the thermodynamics of mixtures.
  • Correlating and describing the properties of refrigerant/lubricant mixtures.
  • Evaluation of desiccant dehumidification, both liquid and solid, for air conditioning purposes.
  • Modeling and evaluation of absorption cycles for chilling and heating, including lithium bromide/water and water/ammonia systems.
  • Modeling and evaluation of other sorption processes.
  • Modeling and evaluation of combustion processes.
  • Evaluation of new and innovative technologies as they appear for potential commercial value, either as disruptive competition or prospective new products or services for the company.
    • Strong understanding of the principles of fundamental thermodynamics. Understanding of the equations of state for describing the thermodynamic properties of refrigerants, including mixtures.
    • Strong foundation in single-phase and phase-change (boiling and condensation) convective heat and mass transfer. Knowledge of conductive and radiative heat transfer.
    • Strong foundation in fluid mechanics.
    • Strong understanding of the vapor compression cycle and component performance characteristics.
    • Understanding of chemistry and chemical reactions.
    • Capability to build computational tools (Excel, Matlab) to execute evaluations and analyses of data.
    • Ability to formulate a problem, efficiently execute an analysis, and clearly summarize conclusions and recommendations.
    • Solid skills for writing reports and papers and presenting relevant material to others.
    • Ability to interact and communicate with others in a collegial manner.

      We offer competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits and programs that help our employees thrive in both their professional and personal lives. We are proud of our winning culture which is inclusive and respectful at its core. We share passion for serving customers, caring for others, and boldly challenging what's possible for a sustainable world.
