Daily Pump Trap: 4/19/12 edition

Good morning! Between April 17 and April 18, there were 38 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 3 (8%) were academically connected and 25 (66%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Hangin' with Dr. Liveris: Dow Chemical (Freeport, TX) would like to hire a Ph.D. chemist for the study of propylene production processes.

Zeroes!: Eastman Chemical Company has been hiring fairly regularly over the life of the blog and the DPT; they're hiring two chemists (Ph.D., 0-5 years experience, B.S./M.S., 5-10 years) for their polymer processing groups.

Oh, dear: Kelly Scientific -- why do you pain me so? A call center in Grand Island, New York, paying $11-$13/hour? That's not even worth the price of the ad, is it?

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) 275, 752, 3,062 and 46 positions for the search term "chemist."
