Daily Pump Trap: 12/13/12 edition

Good morning! Between December 11 and December 12, there were 21 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 5 (24%) are academically connected and 15 (71%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.

A lone position: Consumer Reports (Westchester, NY) is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist to be a food scientist to run a project tracking metals in food. Looks to be a contract position for 2 years.

And that's about it: Other than Kelly positions, there was just that one position. The holidays suck for hiring -- sigh.

What is Merck looking for?: For the search term "chemist", there are 28 US positions listed at Merck's Careers site.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs show 219, 595, 2493 and 14 positions (respectively.)
