Wilmington, MA: Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry is hiring junior and senior-level chemists; anyone out there know what it's like to work here?
Baton Rouge, LA: I love this description in this Albemarle posting for a senior R&D chemist:
The successful candidate will support our R&D activities directed toward the identification, development and commercialization of New Fine Chemical products. This will involve literature searches, construction of complex lab apparatus designed to safely manipulate hazardous chemicals under potentially extreme conditions, designing and conducting experiments directed toward new product development, synthesizing samples for customer testing/qualification, writing technical packages and reports and collecting data to be used in the development of detailed cost estimates.Nothing like "potentially extreme conditions" to get the blood flowing. (No education level specified.)
Huh: This is an interesting way to post a high school teaching position in New York City:
$125,000 Salary for Science Teachers
Earn a $125,000 salary and join a team of master teachers at The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School, recently featured on the front page of the New York Times.I've not talked a lot about high school teaching, but suffice it to say that between the pay and the actual job (crowd control/teaching of teenagers), it doesn't appeal to me. $125k? Might be worth another think. [Of course, that is exactly why I shouldn't be teaching high school, potentially at any price.]
Sheffield, UK: A Ph.D. clinical pharmacology position has been posted for Simcyp (a Certara company), which is not an organization that I'm familiar with. The posted salary is 40-55k GBP (which currently is equivalent to 66-91k USD.) Is that high or low? Seems a little low. Also titled "research assistant/scientist", which seems a little low.
What the heck does that mean?: An odd statement in a medical technology lab posting:
Special features of this position: If you love improving processes, enhancing workflow, and "Leaning out a lab", this could be a great next step for you.I suppose this has to do with Lean (the process improvement tool) and not "Lean In", the Sheryl Sandberg book.
Zeroes!: AbbVie posting another B.S./M.S. DMPK position, 3+ years for the B.S. chemist, zero experience needed for the M.S. candidate.
