Daily Pump Trap: 6/7/11 edition

Good morning! Between June 2 and June 6, there were 83 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 4 (5%) were academically connected.

The NMR guy/gal: The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to be a "director of research instrumentation."

Wanted -- good hands: Exquadrum, Inc. is looking for a B.S./M.S./Ph.D. chemist to perform research into energetic materials chemistry. Relevant experience desired, polymer chemistry experience welcomed.

DNA -> money: Ontorii is a startup that is looking to make therapeutic oligonucleotides; they're looking for a M.S./Ph.D. chemist to perform synthesis of said nucleic acids. Automated synthesizer experience desired.

Huh: Fairmount Minerals is looking for a "highly trained" organic chemist to be a process chemist. 5+ years industrial experience desired. I have no idea what an industrial sand company wants with an organic chemist.

Not using the f-word: Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (located in beautiful, isolated Richland, Washington) is looking for a communications manager for its Fundamental and Computational Sciences division.

Wow, Merck: Of the 83 positions, 63 (76%) were from Merck. Just when you thought it was safe to click "Find A Job", they're back. Are you a chemist? Do you love chemistry? Want to be an animal services technician? How about a clinical veterinarian? Or a maintenance mechanic (well, those folks actually make pretty good money, I'll bet.)
