Senior Process Chemist

A large producer of mineral/chemical (salts) products in west-central Wyoming needs an experienced process chemist (or potentially engineer) to lead all efforts dealing with how the plant is making (or not making) quality products, how to address such issues, analysis of chemical processes on economics, training and much more.


This is a senior strategic position at the company’s operations in Wyoming. Will do a lot of work in-plant, not as a desk-jockey.
