Daily Pump Trap: 2/1/11 edition

Good morning! Between January 27 and January 31, there have been 48 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of those, 18 (38%) are academically connected and 3 (6%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Well, that sounds interesting: BASF is looking for a Ph.D. in engineering or chemistry (1-3 years experience) that has experience with a "Temporal Analysis of Products (TAP) reactor"; you'll be using it in conjunction with heterogenous catalysts.

Resins: TenCate Advanced Composites USA is looking for a B.S. chemist (advanced degree desired) with 3+ years experience with thermosetting resins.

QC: Genentech's campus in South San Francisco is searching for a Ph.D. analytical chemist with 5-7 years experience with biotechnology quality control; looks like you'll be part of their corporate-wide QC team.

Hello, biotech!: Intrexon is a company that uses "modular DNA control systems to enhance capabilities, improve safety and lower cost in human therapeutics, protein production, industrial enzymes and agbio." They're looking for a 3 synthetic chemistry positions, one at each level of education. Looks like at least one of them is in the production of combinatorial arrays (someone still does that?!?)

The party people!: Chemical Abstracts Services is searching for a B.S. chemist with Japanese language expertise for their editorial/database creation team. Sounds interesting, especially if you like Big Ten college football.

  1. I have to agree. Working on a TAP reactor--a mini fixed bed reactor fed by UHV pulse valves and coupled to a QMS--sounds interesting. However, if BASF is looking for someone with 1-3 years experience, then they have about four people in the country to choose from. (And two of them are probably John Gleave's grad students, so why not just email him?)
