Chemical Coating Intern



Other Engineering
Posted on Monday, April 1, 2024

PAR+ is on a mission to increase yield inside greenhouses in a sustainable manner with a revolutionary coating. These past years,we have executed different pilots and achieved positive results on crop quality and crop growth. By making the light diffuse, we can increase the yield of a greenhouse by as much as 6 - 8% annually, with a lifetime for at least 8 years.

We develop coatings that exhibit excellent optical, chemical, and physical properties. Therefore, we are always on the lookout to improve our coating formulation. By testing different materials and optimizing the formulation, you will be helping us to bring the most satisfying coating product to all the greenhouses in the world.


What you’llbe doing:

· Test different materials to deepen our understandings of our coatings and improve sustainability.

· Develop and optimize coating formulation to achieve the best durability (chemical and weathe rresistance) without scarifying optical performances.

· Deposit and characterize coatings in chemical and optical labs.

· Investigate optical behaviour and mechanical behaviour of the coating

· Participate in industrial collaboration to evaluate alternative materials and/or application.

Who we’re looking for:

· You are approaching the end of a Bachelor’s or you are enrolled in a Master’s degree or freshly graduated in a technical oriented education, such as (but not limited to) chemical engineering, chemistry, and material science.

· You have experience with wet chemistry.

· Experience in particle dispersion and wet-coating deposition preferred.

· You understand (or are eager to learnabout) coating optics.

· You are fluent with English (both written and verbally).

· Experience with polymer science and rheology is a plus.

What we offer:

· Internship salary

· Company activities

· Flexible working hours
