Daily Pump Trap: 2/9/12 edition

Good morning! Between February 7 and February 8, there were 24 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 6 (25%) are academically connected and 7 (29%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Pleasanton, CA: Clorox is back, looking for chemists. 3 Ph.D. positions for an antimicrobial scientist, an oxidation scientist and a colloid expert. Sounds good.

Tuscon, AZ: Sion Power Corporation is a battery start-up; they're looking for a cathode development scientist. Ph.D. in chemistry, materials science or chemical engineering desired, with 10+ years experience. And the bidding starts at $110,000, I'm guessing.

Monroeville, PA: RJ Lee Group is an analytical consulting company. Here's their self-description:
For more than 25 years, RJ Lee Group's scientific and investigative resources have provided the competitive edge by defining solutions. As the field of Industrial Forensics advanced and embraced more sophisticated and complex issues such as nanoparticles and electronic materials, RJ Lee Group determined that the need for in-depth resolution was essential and that a single solution was no longer acceptable. Today RJ Lee Group’s expert scientists address these issues and can investigate the entire product life cycle including regulatory compliance in the workplace. 
Sounds like consultants to me; here's their case studies. Nevertheless, they're looking for a director of their analytical lab. Ph.D. with 10+ years experience desired.

Carlsbad, NM: Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center is looking for a M.S.-level radiochemist.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) 275,750, 3,097 and 53 positions for the search term "chemist."

  1. Just thought I'd flag - check the desired area of expertise. Perhaps we're all looking with the wrong keywords :)
