Daily Pump Trap: 3/15/12 edition

Good morning! Between March 13 and March 14, 77 new positions have been posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 4 (5%) are academically related and 59 (77%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Rochester, NY: LeClairRyan is a law firm; they're looking for Ph.D. organic chemists to be technical specialists on their patent prosecution team. Sounds lucrative?

Abbott Park, IL: Abbott is hiring two "lab on a chip" specialists -- a senior scientist and a principal scientist position.

Thousand Oaks, CA: Amgen is hiring for a pilot plant associate position; a B.S. (with no experience?) is desired. Seriously, if you like the thought of working in a challenging job with some physical labor aspects and a very interesting environment, this could be for you. Also, if you like big machines...

Carlsbad, CA: Air Products is searching for a Ph.D. organosilicon synthetic specialist; 5-10 years experience desired. Pays not too bad, looks like.

Southhampton, UK: And for our friends across the pond. Merck Chemicals is searching for a postdoc to work on "design, synthesis and characterization of higher stability donor polymers for bulk heterojunction solar cells." Organic materials chemistry experience desired. Pays 80-85k. That's pretty good pay for a postdoc, I'd think.

ACS San Diego Career Fair watch: 37 positions IRL, 229 positions Virtual Career Fair (mostly Kelly, again.)
