Daily Pump Trap: 3/25/13 edition

Hello! Between March 19 and March 21, there were 23 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 5 (22%) are academically connected.

Groton, CT: Pfizer wishes to hire a Ph.D. analytical chemist; UPLC, HPLC experience desired. 

Are you a sol-gel chemist?: Got a Ph.D., too? If so, do you want to work in Torrance, California for Phenomenex? No? How about PPG in Monroeville, PA?:
Interested candidates should have a strong background in sol-gel chemistry. Practical laboratory experience in the preparation, formulation, and application of sol-gel based materials is required. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the development of sol-gel based coatings. 
I would be very interested in knowing how many people this might apply to. 100? 200? 500?

St. Louis, MO: ICL Performance Products is looking for a Ph.D. inorganic chemist. Here's some unique qualifications:
Knowledge of the chemistry and industrial applications of elemental phosphorus and derivative compounds, phosphorus pentasulfide, phosphoric acid and phosphate salts preferred.
They'd like 2+ years of working experience outside academia, but it doesn't sound like a requirement.

You guys again: Anichem (North Brunswick, NJ) is hiring B.S./M.S./Ph.D. synthetic organic chemists. Their salaries don't look all that hot, that's for sure.

Now there's a range!: Sun Drilling products wishes to hire a QC/QA manager; they're a company that works on drilling fluids and other oilfield products. 1-5 years experience in manufacturing desired. 50-100k offered. I wonder what qualifications are needed for 100k?

UK postdocs interested?: AstraZeneca (ironically enough) has decided to post 4 postdoctoral positions in molecular biology or biochemistry in the UK area. All in Cheshire, actually. Hey, isn't that the site that just shut down? Yes, yes it is.


  1. NB: the Macclesfield AZ site is also in Cheshire!

  2. CJ: About that job posting @ Anichem-Chinese are preferred! That's what someone informed me when I was seriously looking for the job.
