Daily Pump Trap: 7/8/09 edition

Good morning! Including July 3rd, there have been 27 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website.

Travel the world, work for baht?: The Siam Cement Group (I wonder what they do?) is looking for a Ph.D. polymer scientist to do olefin research in Thailand. Man, that sounds like fun. Wait -- no relocation. Sigh. (How many folks in Thailand read the ACS Careers website?)

Gotta start somewhere: The pharmaceutical industry hasn't exactly been clamoring for synthetic chemists, but Genentech is looking for a B.S./M.S. medicinal chemist with one year of experience doing chemistry. I'd pay at least 20 bucks to leaf through the C.V.s that'd come in for that job.

Holy stimulus, Batman!: Savannah River National Laboratories is again doing its darnedest to hire folks (and pay as much money as possible to ACS.) There have been 16 positions posted by them in the last three days.


  1. Genetech seem to have been advertising that (or similar) positions for the last year or so. I've tried applying for it, but have had no response what so ever.

  2. The fishing expedition job ads, that is.
