Indianapolis, IN: Dow AgroSciences is looking for a synthetic chemist in their R&D section; no education specified, but they're looking for someone who has total synthesis experience.
Speaking of which, open positions at Dow?: How many open bench chemistry positions are there at the mighty Dow, anyway? Well, in North America, there appear to (upon a search of their job website) to be 4 positions open, including the synthetic position above. (I'm counting the analytical position in Pittsburg, CA, the automation position in Indy and the senior chemist position in Massachusetts.)
Mount Vernon, WA: PACCAR is a company that works on vehicle fluids (engine oils, coolants, etc.); they're looking for a B.S. chemist with 3+ years experience in vehicle fluids research. (There has to be a better way of finding this chemist than posting a job ad, right? Right?)
Columbus, OH: Chemical Abstracts Service is posting ads for scientific information analysts; minimum B.S. or M.S. required. It would be fascinating to talk to someone who took one of these positions -- they advertise them yearly, it seems. 49k-58.8k isn't a ton of money, but it's not bad for Columbus, I'd think. (Median household income is 38k, so you're not doing too poorly, I'd think.)
