Hi, there, GSK: So GSK put out a full-pager, looking for help in their API and formulating folks. Physical chemists, material scientists, crystallographers and chemical engineers. Good jobs, all. Let's keep it coming and best of luck to GSK, who seems to be prepping for marketable products.

Bold predictions, failed: I coulda sworn the August 10th issue was the big career issue. Maybe it's next week. If it was this week, no good for us.

Eli calls: Big-time group postdocs, Yale is looking for assistant professors to start on July 1, 2010. Good luck, folks. This is one that you want.

Uh, what? And where?: The good folks of the South Dakota State University Biological Control and Analysis by Applied Photonics (BCAAP) are looking for positions in "synthetic and physical organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and drug delivery for cancer therapeutics; and fluorescence microscopy techniques for analysis of [blah, blah, biology, blah.]" Okay, so get the educational requirements: "earned Ph.D. in biochemistry, biological chemistry, biophysical chemistry or closely related discipline." Hmmm. Hmmm.

How about a degree in um, organic chemistry? Maybe? Kind of like the union electricians' motto, organic synthesis is not a hobby.

Small college of the week: Albright College (Reading, PA, student population: 1,650 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for a inorganic chemistry faculty position. Sounds like a good time -- looks like you'll just a 7 professor department, in the 5th (count 'em, 5th!) largest city in Pennsylvania.
