Daily Pump Trap: 12/21/10 edition

Good morning! Between December 16 and December 20, there were 38 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 23 (61%) of these are academically related.

Hello, big companies!: Yet again, larger pharma companies are advertising, but for the development side. Merck shows up with a couple of engineering positions and Amgen arrives with some formulations positions.

Alabama: Serina Therapeutics in Huntsville, AL is looking for a B.S./M.S. process development chemist.

Also...: Boeringer Ingelheim is looking for a B.S./M.S.-level process chemist.

Thanks, China!: Molycorp is hiring an experienced chemical engineer to work at the Mountain Pass mine in California; glad to see that rare earth mining is making a comeback in the US.

Huh: Tyco Fire Products is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to handle its regulatory affairs regarding fire protection compounds; experience with fluorinated compounds is desired.


  1. Too bad I wasn't taught formulations along with the Zimmerman-Traxler tranistion state...What, as if China doesn't have enough of our money/debt, now it wants our raw materials and natural resources as collateral?

  2. No, that was in reference to the political/economic games they've been playing with rare earths. Thanks to the PRC gov't, they're opening the mine back up because US manufacturers want a US source (I think.)
