Daily Pump Trap: 8/22/13 edition

Between August 20 and August 21, there were 39 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 8 (21%) were academically connected and 24 (62%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Lansing, MI: MBI is looking for an experienced analytical chemist to direct analytical chemistry research towards biological systems; Ph.D. with 2+ years experience or B.S./M.S. with 8+ years experience desired. 

Zeroes!: Vertex (Cambridge, MA) is looking for a formulations specialist; B.S. in PharmSci, materials science, 0-4 years experience desired. Also, JRF America (Philadelphia, PA) is looking for a B.S. chemist with 0-2 years experience in analytical chemistry.

This is sort of weird: Houghton International has posted the following ad:
Looking for new PhD students or MS students with 5 years or more experience in either tribology or emulsion chemistry to help develop metal working and metal rolling fluid products. Positions are available in Valley Forge, PA, Shanghai, China and Pune, India. Tribology experience can be with any metal. Emulsion experience in both oil in water or water in oil would be suitable.  Applicant needs excellent communication skills and must be willing to travel to customer sites.
I would really love to hear an expert tribologist's opinion on this ad. The "students" comment, combined with the required amounts of experience, seems incongruous somehow.
