Good morning! Between February 14 and February 15, there were 12 position posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 2 (17%) are academically connected.

Englewood, CO: Gevo, Inc. is a biofuels company; they're looking for a B.S. chemist to be an analyst. 3-5 years of LC experience and knowledge of ASTM fuels analysis desired.

You again: Pfizer is looking for 3 positions: two B.S./M.S. biotransformation/structure elucidation specialists (ADME?) (Groton) and a Ph.D. synthetic organic chemist with only postdoctoral experience (La Jolla). La Jolla is lovely this time of year.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about: Hewlett Packard is searching for a Ph.D. polyurethane synthetic chemist at their San Diego location; they're paying 90k to 120k.

Zeroes!: Life Technologies (Eugene, OR) desires a B.S./M.S./Ph.D. organic chemist for a process/production role. 0-3 years experience for an M.S./Ph.D., 3-6 years for a B.S. position.

Akron, OH: Goodyear is looking for a Ph.D. polymer chemist to be a metrologist; this is a postdoctoral position.

San Diego ACS career fair watch: 6 ads up so far, including one in India.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show 257, 738, 3,161 and 49 positions for the search term "chemist."

  1. Hmm. Nice that Pfizer is recruiting new hires with 0yrs experience while concurrently laying off experienced employees over a weekend by email.

    Guess they gotta keep those grad schools churing out new grads to increase the supply of chemists!
