Daily Pump Trap: 10/26/10 edition

Good morning! Between October 21 and October 25, there were 84 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 37 (44%) were academic and 18 (21%) were from our friends at Kelly Scientific Resources.

Am I crazy? This sounds like a fun job: Ortec, Inc. in "upstate South Carolina" is looking for a B.S./M.S./Ph.D. chemist with 10+ years related experience in polymer batch manufacturing to be a "plant chemist." Metal pipes, not green leaves, I'm guessing.

Another one, different coast: Medical Chemical Corporation in Torrance, CA is looking for a production chemist. B.S in chemistry with strong analytical skills desired for QA/QC analysis.

Wrinkle-free: Allergan (Boston, MA) is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to be a research chemistry manager; strong analytical background and knowledge of polymer surface characterization desired.

Kelly: Nice job, folks. Lots of positions, all at least slightly relevant to chemistry. Want to be an organic photochemist? They might be able to help.

ACS Virtual Career Fair: Don't know if you knew about it, but ACS Careers is having a Virtual Career Fair on November 2 and 3rd.


  1. Is anyone going to check out the Virtual Career Fair ? I'll be there, for sure.

  2. Yeah, I'll do my best. But it's in the middle of the day! (the keynotes, that is -- I'm interested in those, too.)
