Daily Pump Trap: 7/28/09 edition

Including July 22 to July 28, there have been 130 new jobs posted on the ACS Careers website.

Not just butter: Land O'Lakes is looking for a lead formulator for their Arkansas crop science facility. Bet you didn't know the butter folks also made fertilizers and the like, huh? Neither did I.

Vertex, continuing: Vertex is continuing its strong run, with over ten jobs posted in the last week or so. Lots of clinical research type positions.

Be one of the elite: The US Chemical Safety Board is looking for chemical incident investigators. They appear to be forensic investigators, as applied to chemical facilities and the like. Outside of the travel and (doubtless) job hazards, it sounds really interesting.

Waste of time watch: Kelly Scientific continues its torrid pace of publishing on the ACS Careers database, with 72 positions in the last week. They are also continuing their habit of putting out tons of somewhat relevant positions (lots of GC/MS, LC/MS-type jobs -- great work, if you can get it) with jobs that make clear that no one, no one is reading these before they make it on there.

Among this week's winner's: "insectary lab tech" (job description: collecting eggs, scraping eggs, insect dissections.), "Harvest Lab Technician" (job description: obtain wine samples from tanks and juice samples from trucks...", "second shift microbiologist", and "culinary plant manager." Again, what part of American Chemical Society do you not understand?
