Good morning! Between October 8 and October 11, there were 36 new positions posted on the ACS Career website. Of these, 30 (83%) are academically connected.
Johnny-come-lately?: The Toyota Research Institute is hiring a Ph.D. chemist with experience in inorganic synthesis of materials for batteries. It's a temporary position (through Prymus) that's only offering 60-70k. Look, I'm just gonna say this once: this is a hot field. Dunno why Toyota is paying so low for a position that's been searched for by darn near everyone. Whoever gets this position will have two or three other offers in hand, I'll bet.
Huh: Sanofi-Aventis is looking for B.S./M.S. research associates in oncology chemistry (8+/5+ years experience desired, respectively.) Glad to see someone's hiring experienced folks.
Regulatory professional wanted: Dow-Corning desires a B.S. chemist with at least 3 years experience in regulatory affairs. It's at their Midland, MI facility; go Chemics. :-)
A broader look: For the search term "chemist", Indeed.com, Careerbuilder and Monster have (respectively) 4541, 295 and 667 postings.
