About the company:

Sublime is developing a breakthrough process to make low-carbon cement. The technology replaces the industry's legacy fossil-fuel-intensive thermal calciner process with an electrochemical process that produces low-carbon cement at ambient temperatures with renewable electricity. Sublime was started in 2020, as a spin-out of Yet-Ming Chiang's lab at MIT (Form Energy, A123, American Superconductor, 24M, Desktop Metals).

Sublime Systems is a technology company commercializing affordable, ultra-low-carbon cement. Sublime's breakthrough replaces the industry's legacy fossil fuel-fired kilns with an electrochemical system that operates at ambient temperature, eliminating the use of fossil fuel and the need for limestone, resulting in low-carbon, low-embodied energy cement. This technology has the potential to drive gigaton-scale CO2 reductions in an industry responsible for 8 percent of global emissions. Sublime is backed by mission-aligned investors, including The Engine, Prime Impact Fund, Energy Impact Partners, and Lowercarbon Capital. We are building a diverse and collaborative team of folks who are "amped about cement" (pun intended), who share our values (excellence, creativity, and teamwork), and our motivation to create a better world. 

Sublime Systems is seeking a Research Scientist l/II to contribute to the development of our proprietary electrochemical reaction system. This contributor will be responsible for conducting research including hands-on lab-scale testing, data analysis, literature reviews, and will work with the rest of our engineering team to scale our technology. As a member of Sublime Systems’ small but growing team, the Research Scientist l/II will work closely with the company’s leadership and will make a large impact on the development of our technology. The role will focus on electrochemical characterization techniques, design and/or fabrication of electrochemical components, operating electrochemical reactors and systems,as well as physical and chemical characterization. This role is expected to be hands-on, with significant time spent in the laboratory. The ideal candidate will be independent, results-driven, ambitious, organized, and able to thrive in a fast-paced environment.  
 
If you've read this far... this is a good sign that you should apply! Come join us in this exciting opportunity to combat global climate change by transforming how the world makes cement.
