From the inbox

From an astute reader, a polymer scientist position for Honeywell in Kansas City, MO. What might you be doing, you ask?:
The Kansas City Plant is a U. S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration facility managed and operated by Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies (FM&T). 
I think you might be helping to make nuclear weapons. You need a M.S./Ph.D. in chemistry, with 2+ years experience with polymers (7+ years desired.) See job ID# 00207348.

And here's this advertisement from On Target Laboratories:
On Target is seeking accomplished organic chemists with Ph.D. in organic or medicinal chemistry with minimum 3 years of postdoctoral experience. The candidate will be expected to design and synthesize Near Infra Red (NIR) dyes, photodynamic therapeutic agents, and small molecular ligands to target cancer and inflammatory diseases. Experience in total synthesis of natural products, gram scale synthesis, drug discovery techniques such as SAR studies, purification and analytical techniques (HPLC, LC/MS, NMR, fluorometer, UV-Vis, etc.), in vitro studies, in vitro assays, and in vivo (imaging and efficacy) studies are plus.
I'm going to assume you guys mean 3 years experience after you graduated, right? Right?
