Daily Pump Trap: 9/4/14 edition

Good morning! A few of the positions posted on C&EN Jobs in the last week:

Skokie, IL: It isn't often that you see corporate lab manager positions, but this appears to be one from LanzaTech. They want a B.S. in chemistry (advanced degree preferred) and 10+ years experience in the laboratory. I think this could be a great position for the right person.

Cambridge, MA: I think this is the first time that I've seen the term "Data Scientist" show up for a pharmaceutical company - Novartis, in this case:
Seeking experienced Data Scientist with a PhD in life/health sciences, computational biology, or closely related field, and at least five years of experience performing computational research in a pharmaceutical setting. The candidate will be expected to apply state of the art computational approaches to elucidate the biological profile of small molecules regarding their targets, off-targets, and phenotypic outcome.
Best wishes!

Pleasanton, CA: Here's a director-level position at Roche; they're looking for a leader for their nucleic acid group.

Geismar, LA: This analytical team lead position at BASF is very interesting:
This is an opportunity for you to further develop your managerial and technical skills in a highly visible position. This position ensures a safe, efficient, and high paced work environment while developing the talent within the lab. You will be a team member within the Analytical Services Department, which is responsible for all analytical testing completed with the Geismar Site. The laboratory operates 24/7.
Check out the education requirements:
BS degree preferably in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering and minimum 2+ years of chemical manufacturing/laboratory experience OR High School Diploma/GED and minimum 8+ years if experience in a chemical manufacturing/laboratory environment is required. Experience with direct supervision of a group or department is a plus. 
Personally, I think it's great that they're willing to consider someone that's trained "on the job" for this position, but it's certainly unusual to see.

Ste. Genevieve, MO: It's the diversity of the chemical job marketplace on display today with this Senior Applications Technologist position with a lime company. Who knew? (B.S. required, M.S./Ph.D. desired.)

Cincinnati, OH: LyondellBasell looking for an experienced Ph.D. analytical chemist; looks to be polymer chemistry-oriented.

Chicago, IL: Here's an entry-level B.S. chemist position for Carus. (Does anyone have any idea what the "“Edison” stage gate guidelines." might be referring to?)

Menlo Park, CA: Pacific Biosciences is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. surface chemist with 5+ years experience. Is the desire for experience with "JMP, MatLab, MySQL, Visual Studio" typical?
