Daily Pump Trap: 12/18/14 edition

A few of this past week's postings on C&EN Jobs: 

Pasadena, TX: I would love, love, love to see the applications that come in for this B.S. QC chemist position for Total's Bayport plant. They're asking for 5 years experience -- how much does that cost in the rather hot Texas chemistry job market? I'd love to know. 

Arlington, VA: This is such a weird B.S./M.S. policy position -- it sure seems like a government thing, but there's no obvious "security clearance needed" marker: 
CRDF Global seeks a highly motivated project manager who can develop and implement complex international projects and who is capable to work in a challenging, fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate will have a strong academic or professional background in international relations or security studies, or chemistry as well as an interest in nonproliferation and chemical security. 
CRDF Global is a collaborative, team based environment; the Project Manager will implement projects in the Chemical Security Program (CSP) and/or on other teams as assigned. CSP establishes cooperative partnerships to raise chemical security awareness among the international scientific community and secure chemicals that may be misused, in support of common nonproliferation objectives. Projects are mostly implemented the Middle East, Turkey and Southeast Asia.
Boston, MA: Biotage looking for a technical sales rep. I'd think you'd be a busy person.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) 165, 1199, 6396 and 19 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 553 positions for the job title "chemist", with 29 for "research chemist", 77 for "analytical chemist", 6 for "organic chemist", 7 for "synthetic chemist" and 1 for "medicinal chemist."
