Daily Pump Trap: 12/2/14 edition

Just a few positions posted on C&EN Jobs this past week, not a whole bunch: 

Houston, TX: Aramco is looking for a lab tech with "Minimum two (2) years of college or an Associate Degree in related-science major required; Bachelor degree in related science discipline preferred. Nine (9) years industrial research lab experience"

Super specific -- H-1b related position? 

Morristown, NJ: Honeywell is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist to be a lead analytical chemist. Organic and polymer-directed research, looks like. 

Las Vegas, NV: MM Labs is a medicinal marijuana testing laboratory and they're looking for a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist for a senior analytical chemist position. "5 years of postgraduate experience focusing in one or more of the following techniques: LC/MS, GC/MS, GC, HPLC. Additional experience in elemental analysis (ICP/MS) and molecular biology (PCR) is desirable." 

Not that it means much, but I suspect that "analytical chemistry towards cannabis products" is the single fastest growing (by absolute percentage) subfield of actual posted laboratory position (in the sense that in 2012, it was probably 0-1 and now it's 3-5.)

  1. Super specific with an associate degree. I would bet it is one of hundreds of thousands white American citizen perma-temps. Wouldn't be a H1-b -> they often need to stay for PhD to get education visas now. Love American government and big corporate box checkers... Imports bosses who then rely on citizens to do the actual work. Discourage citizens to get PhD with low pay and high education costs.
