            MAJOR FUNCTION

 

We are seeking to fill a scientific research position within the photoprotection/sun care team.  This role is responsible for the identification, characterization, and demonstration of new technologies for photoprotection into prototype sun care formulas with proven consumer-perceivable benefits.  The successful candidate will work in a team-oriented international environment, collaborate with other working groups, and design and implement research proposals toward the completion of research goals.

 II.         PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTABILITIES

 

  • Design and implement research approaches for sun care formulations and improvement of UV filter efficiency which are based upon fundamental logic and sound scientific principles.
  • Develop and utilize new methodology to aid in the study of sun care deposits, efficacy of UV filters, and characterization of formulas.
  • Work closely with other research and support teams to meet research objectives, and aid in the characterization and consumer testing of prototype formulations.
  • Clearly present research results and work with development labs to ensure smooth transition of technologies and prototype formulations.
  • Maintain an active understanding of the patent and research environment and consumer product markets related to sun care and skin care.

 

 

  1. DESIRABLE TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
