Daily Pump Trap: 4/14/11 edition

Good morning! Between April 12 and April 13, there were 12 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, there are no academically connected positions.

I'm guessing business is good: ATL International is hiring an experienced analytical chemist to run its nuclear forensics lab. Why don't the CSIs of Las Vegas PD have one of those? They seem to have everything else. You'll get to interact with DOE, DHS and FBI -- that'll be fun. (Pays pretty good, looks like.)

Another nickel for my collection: Sigma-Aldrich is looking for a Ph.D. synthetic polymer chemist; it appears that they'd like someone who's worked in the industry, but they'd take a new graduate that had knowledge and/or academic experience in the field.

Working for the man: UES works on "structure/processing/properties relationships in nanostructured materials, polymers, and metamaterials. [They] also investigate materials, processes, and architectures for devices such as sensors, flexible electronics, batteries, capacitors, and solar cells." They're looking for Ph.D. chemists to be postdocs in materials science; experience with SEM, TEM, XRD and XPS desired.

Nano-working for the man: Sandia National Labs is looking for a technical director for its division that looks at "Materials - Nano-materials for energy and national security applications with specific attention given to the Nuclear Weapons SMU." Their "current emphasis includes Nano-structured materials and materials with unique Nano-Enabled Properties." Huh. Experience in the nano-world desired. Good luck with that.

Outsourcing corner: Asian Paints (India) is looking for senior scientists -- they're paying well (I hope) and their benefits are "best in the industry." GSK is looking for an experienced chemist to be a medical chemistry team leader in Shanghai -- I'll bet that's good money these days. Ni hao!
