Glum: I like days when I can report on a lot of new positions posted -- today is not one of those days.
Orange, TX: Invista (part of Koch Industries) would like to hire a GC technician with 2+ years of laboratory experience.
Is Amgen hiring chemists? Yes: A trip to Amgen's careers website indicates that they're hiring (one or two?) experienced medicinal chemists at their South San Francisco and Cambridge sties. (posting date October 5.) This is the first time that I've done company-specific searching where they've actually been hiring. (Hey! Didn't they just lay off a bunch of medicinal chemists late last year? Huge sigh.)
A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show 252, 706, 2660 and 10 positions for the search term "chemist."
