Daily Pump Trap: 12/4/14 edition

A few of the positions posted on C&EN Jobs this past week:

New York City, NY: Looks like D.E. Shaw is hiring computational chemists and postdoctoral fellows again. Interesting stuff -- I wonder what their interview process is like? (on the hedge fund side, don't they have to take a higher-level math test?)

Chicago, IL: AbbVie is continuing its strong hiring trend, with the posting of a B.S./M.S. bench organic chemist position as well as a Ph.D. process chemist (experienced) position.

Irvine, CA: Allergan has posted an interesting M.S./Ph.D. polymer chemist position:
This position develops new biomaterials for use in Dermal Fillers and Drug Delivery systems via synthesis, formulation, fabrication, and characterization with aim of achieving targeted bulk and surface properties.
Definitely not your usual sort of thing...

Cambridge, MA: Interesting bioprocess development engineering position posted by Moderna Therapeutics -- definitely for an experienced engineer/biochemist.

???, ???: S.C. Johnson is looking for a M.S. organic/analytical chemist. Can't quite tell where the position is, though. 


  1. I did a phone interview with DE Shaw a while back and know some people who interviewed there. Since it's more like academia, the interview process is the standard all day, meet everyone and explain your research interview.

  2. Wonder if you wish to comment on Washington States STEM Skill Gap?
