ACS Career Fair Watch: 36 positions posted for ACS San Diego, 290 for the Virtual Career Fair (vast majority Kelly positions.)


  1. Ever visited Milliken, in SC? I have. You make jokes about Barry Trost and the "Kentucky Colonel," but you might actually have to dress that way to work at this place. Fiercely Southern, firmly in the 1970s.

  2. I don't know anything about this company in Oregon but drug formulation/delivery is a pretty good area for a medicinal chemist who is ready to exit the medchem field - this kind of job, especially if you work on the discovery rather than manufacturing end of this business allows you to continue doing synthetic chemistry + process stuf related to drug discovery
