Daily Pump Trap: 12/7/10 edition

Good morning! Between December 2 and December 6, there were 49 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 24 (49%) are academically connected.

Toxicology: Millenium's San Diego laboratory is searching for a B.S./Ph.D. chemist to perform toxicological research; extensive experience with HPLC and LC/MS desired.

Renewables: Amyris is one of the more prominent biofuels companies; they desire a Ph.D. analytical chemist with experience in management and method development. Experience with lubricants and polymers also desired.

Cross into the blue: The United States Air Force wishes to hire a M.S. radiochemist; you will be an intrepid monitor to "ensure that underground or atmospheric nuclear weapons testing samples are processed and measured to obtain data on the radioisotopes identified by the evaluators." You will, of course, need a "TOP SECRET (TS) clearance with Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) access in order to fully perform the duties and responsibilities of this position." Sounds important.

Plastics: Silberline Manufacturing wishes a B.S. chemist with experience in plastics and/or material science for plant research and support. "Must be experienced in plastics processing technology with strong mechanical attitude." Uh, okay.

What am I doing here?: The University of Massachusetts at Lowell wishes to tell you that they have raised their graduate student stipends and they are accepting students. No, really, that's what they want to tell you.
