Daily Pump Trap: 10/9/12 edition
Don't call it a comeback, but the Daily Pump Trap has a serious backlog. I'll work my way through it somehow. Between October 2 and October 8, there were 138 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 35 (25%) are academically connected and 84 (61%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.
Holy cow!: There's just a lot of faff in the ACS Careers mix these days, with relatively few actual industrial positions, which is disappointing.
Richmond, VA: Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories is looking for a postdoc to do GC/MS/MS. I am curious how much of this is a run-of-the-mil analytical method development position, and how much is actual novel research.
Cambridge, MA: Vertex is looking for an experienced process chemist -- any level of education desired, at least 4+ years in pharmaceutical industry needed.
West Chester, OH: The Shepherd Color Company is looking for a Ph.D. inorganic chemist "to work in a creative and collaborative atmosphere to conceive of, formulate, and scale-up new colored inorganic pigments or other mixed-metal oxide materials." Sounds like it's entry-level, but hard to say.
Los Alamos, NM: The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies at Los Alamos National Laboratories is looking for a postdoctoral fellow for work in metallo/biopolymers. Sounds interesting.
