Daily Pump Trap: 5/29/12 edition


Good morning! Between May 24 and May 28, there were 42 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 2 (5%) were academically connected and 35 (83%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Hey!: Is anyone else noticing that the ratio of Kelly/non-Kelly positions is really climbing recently? That's a little freaky. Personally, I'm sort of vaguely curious about the "Chemist - Nights and Weekends" position that keeps popping up.

Neat: Merck (Rahway, NJ) is looking for a senior analytical investigator to work with API-related problem solving. Ph.D. in analytical chemistry plus 10 years experience desired.

Newark, DE: Air Liquide is searching for a M.S./Ph.D. research chemist with experience in GC/GC-MS/UV-vis and other spectroscopic techniques. 2+ years experience with environmental monitoring desired.

Boulder, CO: Lexmark desires a Ph.D. chemist with 3-5 years of polymer-related experience to work on "applied research directed at the implementation of emulsion aggregation chemical toners and at carrier coated materials for use in Lexmark laser printer products." If you click through, you'll learn that there's a lot (not that we didn't think so!) to printer ink/toner technology.

  1. CJ, I know it only requires a BS in chemistry but how come you never mentioned this oppportunity: http://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/302967000
