Daily Pump Trap: 12/17/13 edition

Good morning! Between December 12 and December 16, there were 65 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 15 (23%) were academically connected. 34 positions (52%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Lake Zurich, IL: Fenwal is looking for a B.S./M.S. analytical chemist with ICP experience.

Rolla, MO: Brewer Science is looking for a B.S.-level analytical chemist. At its Springfield, MO site, Brewer is also looking for a Ph.D.-level analytical chemist. 

Ridgefield, CT: Boehringer Ingelheim is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. process chemist. The list gets weirdly specific (emphasis mine):
Must possess graduate college coursework/project or work exp. with the following: Heterocyclic & esters/ethers containing organic compounds; using high technological instruments such as NMR, HPLC-MS, GC, GC-MS, HPLC-prep, LCMS & IR spectrometer; using pressurize reactor such as for hydrogenation; drug design & development; synthesis & purification of RNA linkers; design & development of solvent free environmentally friendly green chemical processes, e.g. one-pot synthesis of Acetaminophen, Tylenol®; design and synthesis of N-aminated heterocyclic compounds;

Newark, DE: Lightwave Logic is hiring an experienced organic chemist to synthesize new dye chromophores. 


  1. Good luck on Fenwal. Seems to be the "We only hire people we've worked with before" type of place.

  2. BI posting is giving me a headache, har har.

  3. Boehringer Ingelheim add is probably designed to fulfill Department of Labor certification for someone whom they want to sponsor a Green Card. It is tailored to prove to that they cannot find qualified applicant with these qualifications within US for an essential position, and thats why they want this guy to have the green card.
