Daily Pump Trap: 10/8/13 edition

Good morning! Between October 3 and October 7, there were 82 new positions posted on C&EN Jobs. Of these, 25 (30%) are academically connected and 50 (61%) are from Kelly Scientific Resources. 

Hopes and dreams: PNA Innovations is a startup in Pittsburgh, PA; they're looking for a synthetic peptide chemist:
Synthetic chemist needed for biotechnology startup company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Candidates should have experience in manual and automated solid phase synthesis, liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry as applied to peptides or peptide-like compounds. Prior industry experience is preferred. Salary commensurate with experience. Great opportunity for a creative, energetic scientist to get in on the ground floor of a new high-ceiling venture. 
I like the "high-ceiling venture" bit -- very buzzwordy.

Moorestown, NJ: American Biltrite's tape division is looking for an adhesives product development scientist; 2-5 years experience with "coating pressure sensitive adhesives" manufacturing desired.

Vague: I don't usually post on Kelly positions for obvious reasons, but this one in Houston is so vague that I wanted to point it out:
Kelly Scientific Resources is currently recruiting candidates for a PhD Organic Chemist position for a specialty chemical company in Texas. Qualified candidates will have a PhD in Organic Chemistry with 2-5 years of industrial experience in organic synthesis with a broad range of synthetic reactions. The overall responsibility of this role is to discover and develop new, innovative, and profitable performance chemistry for our customer’s growing business.  
Understanding the technology and process of scaling up a product is essential to the success of this position. An innovative spirit with the ability to communicate your ideas and yet consider the ideas of others at the same time is crucial to this role. This is a direct hire opportunity for an individual that is open to collaborating with a diverse group of technical personalities to achieve the objectives of the company on a demanding schedule.
What in the hell? I mean, give us a vague stab as to what you want. Best of all, it's titled "Ph.D. organic chemist."
