Ahhh, the Pfizer onslaught continues: I think I've figured it out, which is that Pfizer is repeatedly posting (so far as I can tell) 72 positions weekly. This constitutes 56% of new C&EN Jobs positions for this time period, even as most of them seem to be repeats from before. There are some that are relevant, and many that are most certainly not.
Audubon, PA: I think this position is emblematic of the wage issues that young chemists face. Here's a position with JRF America (which is some sort of CRO?); they're looking for an analytical chemist with 3-5 years experience, B.S. degree. Salary (drumroll, please): $38,000-40,000. That is the $2000 more than the salary I was offered at a much smaller firm around the turn of the century (love that phrase.)
Latrobe, PA: Looks to be a B.S.-level metallurgy position with Latrobe Specialty Metals -- interesting.
Alexandria, VA: Now this is an interesting position:
The Operational Evaluation Division (OED) has an immediate career opening for an Analyst supporting the Department of Defense's assessments of the performance of personal protective equipment, vulnerability of military ground combat vehicles, and lethality of weapons/munitions.

Like swallows to Torrance: Phenomenex has posted its usual slots for organic surface chemists (2 years industry experience) and the like.
India: I see Piramal is advertising positions in India.
Upton, NY: Brookhaven National Laboratory is looking for a electron microscopy postdoc.
Grand Rapids, MI: Meijier is hiring a FIFRA/TSCA specialist; needs relevant experience.
The Irrelevants List: Are you a chemist? Do you wish to work in chemistry? C&EN Jobs would like to know if you might be an RN.
