Daily Pump Trap: 9/7/2010 edition

Good morning! From September 1 to September 6, there were 43 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 28 positions (65%) are academically connected.

Academia: Note the high percentage of academic positions -- fall recruiting season is ramping up nicely.

What is this doing here?!?: Stanford University is advertising its "Annual Johnson Symposium" in the database. What's that about? (note that I'm not making any inappropriate jokes... even though I could.)

Can't be outsourced? (probably): E&J Gallo Winery is searching for a B.S. chemist to perform analytical testing on alcoholic beverages. I'm guessing that this is quite a job.

Microwaves: CEM Corporation desires a B.S./M.S. chemist to perform organic synthesis in the lab, travel with the sales team and perform product development. Sounds interesting.

Cleveland!: Eastman Kodak is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. polymer chemist to "identify potential materials, synthesise test quantities of these polymers in the laboratory for testing in new litho plate products for Computer-to-Plate systems." I have no idea what any of this means.

Rocks!: GE desires a chemist (B.S. required; M.S. or higher preferred) to manage their materials characterization laboratory, also in Cleveland, OH. Local candidates only, no relo offered. "Minimum 10 years inorganic laboratory experience, including method development and analytical techniques."
