The Opportunity

The Lab Chemist will be responsible for the analysis of samples to determine their chemical and physical properties using chromatography and spectroscopy techniques.

Our Kimball, NE laboratory is at the forefront of the struggle to regain environmental sustainability for our planet. Located near a small town in Nebraska but within easy and short driving distance of Cheyenne WY, our laboratory tests soils, waters, and hazardous waste samples utilizing sophisticated instrumentation including GC/ECD, GC/MS, ICP/OES, ICP/MS, CVAA, IC as well as various other analytical instruments. We support a USEPA and Nebraska State regulated facility that turns the hazardous wastes produced by industry into landfillable clean ash.

Kimball is just a two-and-a-half-hour drive to wonderous locations like Rocky Mountain National Park and the Snowy Range of Medicine Bow National Forest, with Nebraska and Wyoming State Parks even closer. Residents of this area enjoy clean air, starlight unencumbered by the level of light pollution found in big cities, a family-oriented community, and a crime rate that’s less than half that of the national average.
