Good morning! Between July 12 and 13, there were 9 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 1 (11%) is academically connected.
Brevard, NC: PharmAgra Labs is really looking for B.S./M.S./Ph.D. organic chemists. (cGMP synthesis experience desired.) Check out this one: "APPLICANT MUST BE AVAILABLE TO START WORK WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF OFFER."
Well, that's emphatic. I have a feeling there may be Chemjobber readers there, so it's gotta be an okay place, right?
UPDATE: David Kroll comments positively on Brevard, NC. "CJ, I see that you followed up on this post but let me just say here that Brevard is an absolutely gorgeous place with a great quality of life. If you're a chemist who is a fan of the outdoors (mountain biking, hiking, clean air), it's tough to beat Brevard on the East Coast. It's not quite high enough to be above the mosquitoes (only 2,231 ft above sea level) but it'll have fewer bugs than where I am in the Research Triangle. You're also only 45 min to the very hip town of Asheville and only 30 min to their airport (which has major airline service).
I'd also add that being in the state and networking with the NC chemistry community might improve one's chances of moving to a chem job with a bigger entity down the road. Moreover, nearby UNC-Asheville and Western Carolina University (in Cullowhee) have a good chemistry programs and are likely to be another source of connections for future jobs and current relationships with academia."
