Daily Pump Trap: 11/27/12 edition

Good morning! Between November 20 and November 26, there were 103 new positions posted on C&EN Jobs. Of these, 32 (31%) were academically connected and 62 (60%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Berkeley, CA: Lawrence Berkeley National Labs is looking for a postdoctoral fellow for a project titled "Simulating the generation, evolution and fate of electronic excitations in molecular and nanoscale materials with first principles methods." Huh.

Taylorsville, MI: This manufacturing optimization position is weirdly posted to C&EN Jobs, especially when it desires "plywood process knowledge". But it's interesting nonetheless.

Bridgewater, NJ: Henkel is looking for a senior development chemist for polyurethane work; I think they would take the right M.S.-level recent graduate in polymer chemistry.

Malvern, PA: Teva is looking for a B.S./M.S. chemical engineer with 5+ years experience with reaction engineering and process hazard analysis.

Ahh, you guys: Shamrock Technologies (yes, them) is looking for a salesperson; there's some wonderful language, including "This careeer (sic) should be an exciting and rewarding experience for someone who can handle adversity by overcoming it. Research and Sales have this in common." and "Requirements: Ability to retain and apply knowlege. (sic) /Drive to accomplish. / Willingness to take rejection (temporarily). / Background in chemistry. / Like people."
