So here's what I want to know: The Air Force is hiring a director of analytical radiochemistry, I think:
This position will be located in a new 38,000 square foot radiochemistry laboratory that will support the Air Force Technical Applications Center's (AFTAC) Nuclear Debris Collection and Analysis Program by performing high confidence measurements in support of the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System. This position supports national-level materials treaty monitoring programs.I'm sure that this is just a routine budget thing, but one hopes that the government doesn't really need a new nuclear weapons detection laboratory. Oh, well.
Richmond, CA: Chevron would like to hire a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist to perform atomic spectroscopy. 2+ years performing petroleum analysis chemistry desired, as well as GC/ICP/MS chemistry.
Unknown, unknown: Someone would like to hire a really experienced Ph.D. chemist, and not give them a particularly impressive title ('scientist' (perhaps the recruiter didn't catch the traditional 'principal' or 'senior')). Check out the preferred qualifications: "Ph.D. degree plus 2 years of process chemistry or material science industrial experience, preferred in crystallization development by FBRM, PVM, and ReactIR technologies. Experience in using Easymax or HEL AutoMATE chemical reactor. Experience in using Biotage, prep-HPLC, Akta, and size exclusion purification techniques."
Best of luck, I suppose.
Zeroes!: Ironwood Pharmaceuticals (Boston, MA) is hiring a Ph.D. organic chemist, 0-3 years experience. The HR person is going to be emptying their inbox with a shovel.
Baton Rouge, LA: Albermarle is hiring a polymer chemist to work in their flame retardant and curatives department; no educational experience noted.
