Keeling & Walker in Stoke-on-Trent are able to combine 100 years of experience and knowledge in their field with the support for further growth that comes from being part of Amalgamated Metal Corporation.  The smaller company’s flat hierarchy and quick decision making process combined with the stability of a large group means that the business is well placed to continue to develop cutting edge products for a worldwide market.

The Head of R&D will lead the development of new innovative products, primarily around infrared absorbing oxide nanomaterials.  This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual with a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry or Material Science to explore new chemistries in line with the company’s strategic goals.  The successful candidate will be prepared to be ‘hands-on’ and with a real ‘get-it-done’ mentality.
