Berkeley, CA: Lawrence Berkeley is looking for a Ph.D. staff scientist for its synthetic actinides program.
Richmond, VA: Evonik is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. chemist to be an agrochemical formulations specialist; 3+ years industrial experience, preferably related to "formulation of actives and surfactants for agrochemical pesticides or organic surfactants or silicon surfactants."
Birmingham, AL: The Southern Research Institute is looking for senior medicinal chemists:
The Drug Discovery Division of Southern Research Institute (SR) invites applications from senior organic/medicinal chemists with experience in drug discovery and lead optimization to join the Medicinal Chemistry Department... To be in a position to exploit these projects, as well as support several internal projects, we are looking to hire experienced medicinal chemists interested in participating in collaborative drug discovery projects.
To be considered, applicants must possess a Ph.D. in organic or medicinal chemistry and should have an externally funded, grant-based research program or have demonstrated the ability to obtain external funding.First, it would seem to me that this would be a great set of opportunities for senior industrial medicinal chemists -- but then there's the "external funding" requirement (SBIRs, maybe?)
I wonder how these fishing expeditions by Southern Research Institute have been, especially considering there's been about one advertisement a year. Hmmm.
Hercules, CA: Evans Analytical Group is looking for a chemist to conduct pesticide residue studies. GC/MS, LC/MS experience desired.
