Daily Pump Trap: 12/12/13 edition

Good morning! Between December 10 and December 11, there were 36 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 19 (53%) were academically connected and 14 (38) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Not much, really: Kelly positions and academic slots. Sigh.

Blacklight Power!: Blacklight Power will post jobs everyonce in a while; they're looking for a senior mechanical engineer. For more information on this rather dubious organization, see Derek Lowe's posts.

Huh: I'm probably going to cover this in next week's IFF, but Shenzhen University is hiring a crap ton of professors (30 openings), some for chemistry. Shenzhen isn't a very nice part of China, but it likely is very exciting to be there.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) 206, 700, 2593 and 19 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 149 positions for the job title "chemist", with 12 for "research chemist", 19 for "analytical chemist", 3 for "organic chemist" and 1 for "synthetic chemist."
