Daily Pump Trap: 6/30/11 edition

Good morning! Between June 28 and June 29, there were 18 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 3 (17%) were academically connected.

Suits wanted: BASF is hiring for a project coordinator in Iselin, NJ; a B.S. in chemistry and 3+ years experience desired. An MBA would be considered a plus.

Zeroes!: Intrexon would like to hire a Ph.D. mass spectrometrist; 0-5 years of post-graduate experience desired. Experience with MS of biomolecules a plus.

Kingsport, TN: Eastman Chemical is looking to hire a Ph.D. physical chemist with experience in optical and AFM microscopy. You should be motivated to develop into a company expert on microscopy applications; I like it when companies say that.

Little Lost Lamb, Dutch edition: The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons desires a head of its health and safety branch; an advanced degree in medicine (an MD?) with 15+ years of clincal experience and experience interacting with military personnel desired. What are you doing advertising with the American Chemical Society?

Tri-Cities, WA?: The Pacific Northwest National Laboratories have posted 4 postdoc positions; it's lovely out there in the high desert. What's that nuclear reservation over there? Oh, never mind about that.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) 297, 624, 3,617 and 100 positions for the search term "chemist."
