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.)
