We are delighted to have clients or potential clients come to our laboratory to discuss their materials problems or interests with us.  We will give you a tour of the laboratory and talk about our capabilities and experience for solving materials problems.  If you wish to observe some or all of the analysis of your materials, that can also be arranged.

We are also happy to show students (high school, college, and graduate school) our laboratory and to talk to them about careers in science and technology.

A four page, easily printed, summary of our capabilities can be found here.

At AME we are dedicated to building the best team of materials scientists. Our professional staff enjoys constant intellectual challenges through applied materials problem-solving. We serve a broad array of industries and solve problems for a large number of material types and applications; we are constantly growing our knowledge and learning.  We are materials detectives, whose attention to detail and ability to see “The Big Picture,” make us the scientific equivalent of Sherlock Holmes. Our work is fun!

We offer flexible hours and a respectful, collegial work atmosphere with constant intellectual challenges.

Joining our Team:
AME is a small, independent materials analysis laboratory. We seek professional scientists/engineers with good problem-solving skills, strong self-initiative and self-management abilities, and good communication skills.  We welcome candidates who are able to bring in new clients by expanding our capabilities, doing business development, or through existing relationships.  We ask all team members to lead their own projects and work as entrepreneurs within the larger team.

Candidates should have an interest in the characterization of applied materials and have a degree in a relevant scientific field such as materials science and engineering, chemistry, physics, polymolecular science, chemical engineering, or electrical engineering. US Citizenship is preferred since it is a positive factor in keeping our client’s information proprietary.

Please send resumes to Dr. Charles R. Anderson. Include “Careers at AME” in your subject line.  Please note that our ability to hire new staff scientists is subject to the current state of the U.S. economy and economic freedoms to earn a living.
