Nice to see, I suppose: Eli Lilly is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to be a researcher in pharmaceutical solid state chemistry; they're looking for someone with 5+ years experience, academic or industrial. I'll bet the number of folks who have academic experience in organic solid-state chemistry would fit on a city bus comfortably.
This one's for the organickers: A postdoc position (2 years from degree) with Targacept, in Winston-Salem, NC. And...
Oh, dear: Proteostasis Therapeutics in Cambridge, MA is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to be a medicinal chemist. "PhD in organic chemistry or equivalent is required with 1-4 year post-doctoral/pharmaceutical experience for Scientist level and 3-8 years post-doctoral/pharmaceutical experience for Senior Scientist level."
In one sense, this is good, in that they're willing to consider folks with 3+ years postdoctoral experience. In another sense, this is bad, in that there are folks out there who have more than 3 years postdoc experience who haven't found positions. But that's to be expected with the 2008-201? employment recession in chemistry; it's just my hope that it doesn't become a hardened expectation to be hired.
Cambridge, again: Vertex is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to become a DMPK specialist. Some experience desired.
SoCal, too: Hitachi (Irvine, CA) is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to be a member of a research team looking at polymer technology. Experience with biochemistry and polymer synthesis desired.
And points south: A PI is looking for a B.S. chemist to be a lab coordinator; experience with polymer and small molecule MS characterization is desired.
