Torrance, CA: Phenomenex, once again, has posted 5 positions to C&EN Jobs; I wonder what's going on there?
Raleigh, NC: Agile Sciences has published an ad that's so specific that there must be something fishy going on there:
Required: PhD in Chemistry plus 3 years of experience in the job offered or as Researcher or closely related occupation. Special Skills required: Experience must include 3 years of postdoctoral research in organic synthesis. Must have experience synthesizing 2-aminoimidazole compounds and testing them for biofilm inhibition/dispersion activity. Must have experience with solution phase organic synthesis and molecular biology techniques. Must have published papers on the subjects of solid and solution phase organic reactions, performing circular dichroism in conjunction with 1- and 2-dimensional (COSY, TOCSY, ROESY) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and quenched molecular dynamics (QMD, using QUANTA/CHARMM) simulation.I mean, there are so many "must haves" there. What is this about?!?
Albuquerque, NM: Sandia National Laboratories is looking for what seems to be a postdoctoral fellow in materials science (quantum dot something-or-other); they call it a "limited-term research associate" for 1 year, plus a discretionary 1 year. Sounds like a postdoc to me.
Las Vegas, NV: Clark County Water District wants a B.S. chemist for a testing position; looks like they'd take a new graduate. Salary of $45k minimum.
