Computational Polymer Scientist - Materials Discovery



Posted on Wednesday, December 6, 2023

Cambium works at the interface of biotech and materials science to build next-generation defense products. We integrate computational chemistry, product design, and advanced manufacturing methods to solve difficult challenges like hardening UAVs against laser attack, protecting payloads during hypersonic flight, and streamlining the defense product manufacturing supply chain. Our people come from places like SpaceX, Anduril, Scaled Composites, Lockheed Martin Skunkworks, and US DoD Research Labs. We are seeking motivated and exceptional people to join our world-class team of aerospace innovators and biotech leaders.

Cambium is seeking a Computational Scientist to join our growing team in El Segundo, CA. The successful candidate will have a strategic mindset, a strong desire to help grow a company, and will help us build a work culture of open-mindedness that embraces creativity and contrarian thinking. At Cambium we’re willing to do things differently.

Cambium is seeking a collaboration-oriented, results-driven Sr. Computational Scientist to drive our materials discovery activities. Key responsibilities of this role will include developing and using machine learning models to discover compounds, leading molecular simulation efforts, and working in close concert with our chemists, materials scientists, manufacturing team, and business development experts. As Cambium experiences rapid growth, the responsibilities for this role are expected to evolve. This is an on-site position with some flexibility.
