Daily Pump Trap: 7/12/11 edition

Good morning! Between July 7 and July 11, there have been 92 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of those, 3 (3%) are academically connected. and 1 is from Kelly Scientific Resources:

MERRRRRRRRCK!: 69 (83%) of the jobs posted were posted by Merck; there are a few science-related positions and more than a few not. I like the Russian sales positions, myself.

Salt Lake City, Utah: Parker is searching for a B.S./M.S./Ph.D. chemist with experience in polyurethane research; "Previous research in anti-microbial formulations, fluorine chemistry and other polymer synthesis a plus."

Big Pharma: Abbott is looking for a Ph.D. medicinal chemist with 3-6 years experience; Hit-to-Lead experience is essential. Sounds good for somebody!

For the chemical engineers: Aspen Aerogels wishes to hire a B.S.+ chemical engineer with experience with sol-gel processing; their facility is outside Boston, MA.

Zeroes!: Promega Biosciences is looking for Ph.D. organic chemists with 0-3 years experience; knowledge of fluorescence and bioconjugation is desired.


  1. So the Parker Hannifin position fits is probably for this: http://goo.gl/Kbv6a

    Which would make a decent blog post of the chemistry involved in coatings. If only I had the lit access.

  2. Many of the jobs you post here are bogus. Merck is barging ahead with mass firings. Anything on USA jobs is nothing more than data-mining for the police state. You get a government job by knowing someone in government.


    Merck is 'collecting resumes' for resale or the
    further gaming of its existing employees.
    Your resume will be 'sold' to third parties such as credit card companies. So if you are unemployed your credit card company will cut off your credit.

  3. The previous comment hurts my soul ... I want to believe that it isn't true ... but something nags
