Daily Pump Trap: 5/28/15 edition

Good morning! A look through a few of the positions posted at C&EN Jobs:

North Chicago, IL: AbbVie continues its hiring spree with a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemistry position. (6-12 years of experience.)

Natick, MA: Sigma-Aldrich looking to hire two M.S./Ph.D. organic chemists.

Sparks, GA: BASF is looking for a site chemist. (Never heard of such a position!)

East Bay Area, CA:  Hexcel Corporation desires a B.S. chemist to work on polymers for the aerospace industry.

"Central New Jersey": Orthobond Corporation is looking for a director of chemistry; M.S./Ph.D. in chemistry or material science desired, "fluency in English" a must.

Ahhh, you again: Organix is looking for folks, but this time, they're not calling it a postdoc. 6 month contract position - interesting.

Dubuque, IA: Packers Chemical appears to be a cleaning products formulating company - they're looking for a chemist.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) "1000+", 1293, 10,074 and 24 positions for the search term "chemist." Interestingly, Indeed's number of chemistry jobs has jumped significantly from ~6000. I don't think that's a sign of market change as much as it is a sign of better search algorithms. LinkedIn shows 683 positions for the job title "chemist", "98" for "analytical chemist", 35 for "research chemist", 7 for "organic chemist", 6 for "polymer chemist", 5 for "medicinal chemist" and 3 for "synthetic chemist."
