Daily Pump Trap: 6/13/13 edition

Good morning! Between June 11 and June 12, there were 24 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 5 (21%) were academically connected and 14 (58%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

It's the instrument people, really: A software position from Shimadzu, and a field sales engineer one, too.  A couple of Phenomenex product manager positions... and that's about it. Sigh.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) 217, 846, 2,632 and 17 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 115 positions for the job title "chemist", with 6 for "research chemist", 1 for "organic chemist" and 8 for "analytical chemist."
