Daily Pump Trap: 9/1/2010 edition

Good morning! From August 30 to August 31, there were 16 new positions on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 4 (25%) are academically connected and 2 (13%) are from our friends at Kelly Scientific Resources.

Football!: Wildcat Discovery Technologies is a battery research start-up. They're looking for a B.S./M.S. research associate to help with the synthesis and analysis of new materials. It might be too trendy, but I find this position to be really neat. (Obscure reference sort-of explained here.)

Weeds: The University of Illinois is looking for a B.S. chemist who is interested in weed science. Specifically, they someone with  "a thorough understanding of analytical laboratory equipment and techniques for chromatographic analysis of plant secondary compounds and metabolites."

Mountains, too: W.L. Gore's facility in Flagstaff, Arizona desires a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist to work in their medical devices division. Required:  3 years of experience working in a regulated environment and demonstrated in-depth working knowledge of GCMS and/or LCMS analytical techniques.

Nanonanonano: Adama Materials in Hawaii wishes to find a M.S./Ph.D. polymer chemist ("with emphasis in advanced polymers and their chemistry, or related discipline with 5 + years of research and development experience (of which at least 2-3 years were in industry)." Interesting commentary for the job description: "University lab setting in a startup business environment (fast paced and potentially longer working hours meeting deadlines)." Great!

Conservation of a different sort: The Los Angeles County Museum of Art wishes to hire a Ph.D. chemist for a postdoctoral research position in the field of art conservation. "Previous experience in a museum environment is not required, but a strong interest in the visual arts is important." You can read up on the job here, with Leigh Boerner's great interview of a similar lab in Indianapolis.
