Daily Pump Trap: 1/16/14 edition

Good morning! Between January 14 and January 15, there were 71 new positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 39 (55%) were academically connected and 16 (23%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Ummmm: Not much there, really. Probably a tough week, what with the beginning of the year and all. Yeah, that's the ticket. Lots of random academic positions, not much else. 

Orlando, FL: A cheminformatician position has been posted for the Sanford-Burham site in Florida; B.S. to Ph.D., looks like lots of experience desired. 

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) 188, 733, 2624 and 15 positions for the search term "chemist." For LinkedIn, there were 140 positions for the job title "chemist", with 16 for "analytical chemist", 3 for "organic chemist", 1 for "synthetic chemist", 1 for "medicinal chemist" and 16 for "research chemist."

  1. Searching "chemistry" yields many more positions in the field. Especially on indeed.
