Job Description

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.


This is an exciting opportunity to transform how the world makes cement. Sublime Systems seeks a Senior Research Scientist to assist with the design and scale of our novel low voltage electrochemical technology. This contributor will be responsible for improving and scaling our electrochemical technologies as well as assisting with operating, monitoring, and evaluating our scaled system. As a member of Sublime Systems’ small but growing team, the Senior Research Scientist will work closely with the company’s leadership and will make a large impact on the technology and business. This is an exciting opportunity to combat global climate change by transforming how the world makes cement. This role will focus on electrochemical design, scaling, validation, and optimization. The position is expected to be hands-on, with a significant amount of time spent engaging in lab testing. The Senior Research Scientist is expected to become an intellectual leader within Sublime’s technical team. The ideal candidate will be independent, results-driven, ambitious, organized, and able to thrive in a fast-paced environment.
