Daily Pump Trap: 8/19/2010 edition

Good morning! From August 17 to August 18, there were 28 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 3 (11%) were academically connected.

Big companies: GE, Kraft and BASF are looking. Good news, I'd think.

Making jobs that make jobs better: BASF is hiring a M.S./Ph.D. polymer chemist with 15+ years of experience to "[d]esign and develop new emulsion polymers for pressure-sensitive and flexible packaging and laminating adhesive applications." Just as long as they keep sticking!

Good things: GE is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist, desiring "[e]xperience with analytical and sensing methods for biological and chemical detection including optical and electrochemical sensing as well as direct spectroscopy." Sounds pretty interesting.

Once again: Gilead Sciences is hiring a B.S./M.S. medicinal chemistry associate (entry-level); this position is in Connecticut, as opposed to the home office in the Bay Area.

Hexion: This position in Louisville, KY is for an experienced B.S./M.S./Ph.D. polymer/organic chemist with "in-depth knowledge of organic and polymer chemistry" and "experience with thermosetting resins."

New stat: There were 9 positions advertised by very large corporate entities. Good news? We'll see.
