Based upon previous assignments or instructions as to the specific analyses and tests to be performed, selects the appropriate methods and procedures. Performs the analyses and tests which include physical tests, wet laboratory analysis, and instrumental analysis using such instruments as atomic absorption spectrophotometer and gas chromatograph. Performs routine calculations. Detects unusual reactions and instances when the established methods and procedures are not applicable.  Recommends to the supervisor a minor modification to the method, extending examination, or an alternate method to use. Writes a laboratory report identifying the sample, stating the methods and procedures used, and showing the results.

Requirements
Possession of a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a major course of study in chemistry.  Appointees will be required to possess a driver's license valid in New Jersey only if the operation of a vehicle, rather than employee mobility, is necessary to perform the essential duties of the position.
