Daily Pump Trap: 4/23/13 edition

Good morning! Between April 18 and April 22, there were 230 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 11 (5%) are academically connected and 203 (88%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Wyandotte, MI: BASF is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. polymer chemist for their High Temperature Polymerization group.

Fort Collins, CO: CHD Biosciences is looking for a formulation chemist for antimicrobial products, looks like. B.S. plus 6 years experience desired.

Warrington, PA: Polysciences is a C&EN Jobs regular -- they're back for more production folks and engineers.

Lexington, MA: Does anyone else feel a little weird when Kelly Scientific is posting an industrial postdoc position? Probably not.

Not Crissy: Titanium Cristal (Glen Burnie, MD) is looking for a sales representative for performance chemicals. 


  1. Since when did 'sales rep' become synonymous with pimp? You know its bad out there when chemists are selling themselves. Nice typo to put a smile on my face this morning.

  2. If chemists with 4-year degrees are expected to make $10 an hour through Kelly to run routine analyses, why can't people with PhD's get in on the fun too?

    1. Careful what you ask for. If the ACS keeps pushing to mint more and more PhDs you might just get your wish.

  3. That BASF job looks interesting, and I have more than a few friends who are with BASF (at different locations).

    What's the low down with Kelly Scientific Resources?
