Daily Pump Trap: 3/29/12 edition


Good morning! Between March 27 and March 28, 27 positions have been posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 4 (15%) are academically connected and 14 (52%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Farmington, NM: Have a B.S./M.S. in chemistry and want to live in the Southwest? Envirotech would like to hire you to perform soil sample analysis; GC, GC/MS, ICP experience desired. $25-30/hr.

Iselin, NJ: BASF is hiring an experienced Ph.D. chemist for a research manager-type position; you're expected to have more than 10 patents. Makes reference to FCC -- fluid catalytic cracking?

The Rocket City: A generics company in Huntsville, Alabama would like to hire a B.S. chemist with experience in pharmaceutical analytical chemistry; looks to be QC/QA/method development oriented.

The Sunflake City: USDA would like to hire an analytical chemistry postdoctoral fellow for its Grand Forks, North Dakota research center. Looks to be LC/MS oriented. Looks like you would be making 23k more than the median household.

Hmmm: I distrust nutraceutical companies, but Herbalife is hiring 2 scientists (at least one analytical chemist) for its Los Angeles site.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) 282, 1,500 (!), 2995 and 34 positions for the search term "chemist."
