Not much (here):
A big tip of the hat to Ash Stevens (looking for a director of analytical services); other than that one position (in Detroit, MI), all the rest of this week's positions are in Asia. WuXi is still looking for sea turtles, so is Roche.

Great title!:
Eli Lilly has a nice ad up this week for a Senior Medicinal Chemist position in Singapore. While that's not such a big deal, the ad starts off with "The senior drug hunter leads a team of chemists to deliver high quality leads or drug candidates..." It'd be interesting to get a poll of experienced med-chem types together and see how many of them referred to themselves as "drug hunters."

Small college of the week: The University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON, Canada, student population 26,457, SA-LUTE!) is looking for a "Canada Excellence Research Chair in Quantum Information." Good Lord, I have no idea what that means. (I think it has something to do with quantum computing.)
