Daily Pump Trap: 4/9/15 edition

Good morning! A few of the positions posted on C&EN Jobs recently:

Richmond, VA: So I'd really like to know what this "Senior Scientist Postdoc" position with Eurofins is about. They'd like industry experience as well.

What the hell? Bluntly put, if it's a postdoctoral fellowship, it sure as hell isn't a "senior scientist" position.

Mansfield, TX: Tyco Fire Protection hiring a B.S./M.S. analytical chemist - something tells me that'd be a pretty interesting position.

Stanhope, NJ: This "senior research scientist" position with Isolatek (what do they do? fireproofing, it seems) looks lucrative at 100-120k.

Watsonville, CA: Driscoll's is looking for a senior scientist for "managing and leading plant metabolomics research at Driscoll’s main research facility." I'm going to guess that finding someone who can do this is going to be pretty tough?

Oregon, OH: Toledo Refining Company looking for a senior chemist; B.S. + 5-10 years experience.

Interesting: Rarely see paint companies around these parts, but Benjamin Moore posted three jobs recently.

    Looks to me that it's an example of what happens in a labor market when supply exceeds demand. Sadly, they'll have no shortage of applicants.

  2. A temp job in disguise. Except that it isn't being advertised by Aerotek and the like.

  3. Eurofins is a high-tech sweatshop just like Evans Analytical Group or Lancaster Labs.
