Indianapolis, IN: Kelly Scientific posts a position for what can only be Dow Agrosciences; they desire a very specific kind of synthetic organic chemist:
Kelly Services is in need of Synthetic Organic Chemist to join the team at a top-tier agricultural company, located in the Indianapolis area.Most of the time, posting B.S./M.S. or "senior research associate" would be enough to stave off the Ph.D. resumes.

Prefer experience with Discovery Chemistry, or heterocyclic chemistry.
