Good morning! Between September 16 and 20, there were 31 new positions available on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 22 were academically connected.
Huh: Quaker Chemical Corporation of Philadelphia, PA is looking for chemists that have experience in formulating for work in "lubricants and process fluids in our Steel Rolling Lab, Metal Working Lab, and Metal Forming lab." Now where's the annual lubricant issue of C&EN?
Polymers and personal care?: HallStar (a manufacturer of the latter) desires a "MS/PhD in polymer science, with 2-5 years of experience working with engineering thermoplastics and elastomers." Ideally, the candidate will have had "hands-on lab work with polymer compounding and performance characterization" and worked with "structure/property-based design and evaluation of polymer additives which deliver improved performance in a variety of polymer systems."
Metabolism: Novartis is looking for a B.S./M.S. chemist for metabolism studies who has "[p]rior experience with radioisotope handling (e.g., 3H, 14C), biochemical techniques and in vivo and in vitro metabolism is required" and "[a]n excellent working knowledge of general laboratory techniques, HPLC and LC-MS/MS operation, and troubleshooting and method development is essential."
Not too far from Yonkers!: BASF's Tarrytown location desires a B.S. chemist to "assist with the preparation and testing of formulated products in the Epoxy Composite Laboratory." You will help keep "a clean, neat lab environment", so I'm not qualified for that position.
