Good morning. So it's been a while since the last one of these (life intervenes.) From March 17, 2010 until April 13, 2010, there have been 156 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 35 (22%) are academically connected and only 1 (<1%) are from our friends at Kelly Scientific Resources.
Things are...: Well, it's hard to say. For not doing this for nearly a month, I certainly hoped that there would be a lot more out there than this. That being said...
Good, but not perfect: Good: Albany Molecular is looking for experienced chemists. Not perfect: ...in Hungary, India and Singapore.
Safety specialist: The United States Pharmacopeia is looking for a B.S. chemist safety specialist. Sounds like fun, and probably a stable position.
So that's a little specific: Cabot Microelectronics is looking for a senior research scientist to work on R&D in their sector, semiconductor polishing slurries. Don't know what that is, but it sounds neat. (No educational requirements made.)
And the benefits, well: E&J Gallo Winery is looking for a B.S. analytical chemist to work on testing of well, everything: "alcoholic beverages, grapes, grape products, corks, oak, water/waste water, incoming goods and materials, product contact materials, and other related materials."
First wine, then: Trader's Point Creamery (located in the well-known dairyland of Zionsville, Indiana) is looking for a cheese making and shift supervisor. Why they decided to come to the ACS Careers website is beyond me.
