Daily Pump Trap: 7/14/15 edition

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

Newark, DE: Air Liquide is looking for an experienced M.S./Ph.D. chemist for a senior analytical chemist position. Amused at the italicized "industrial" in the experience requirement.

Piscataway, NJ: Colgate Palmolive has a postdoctoral opening; sounds pretty interesting and the experience (oral care formulations) would certainly be unique. But why is this a "post doctor" position and not an entry-level senior scientist position?

SSSSSSmmmmokin!: RJ Reynolds Tobacco is looking for a B.S. chemist for a "Scientist III - Flavor Scientist" position. Interesting comment:
This position requires smoking to assess the sensory characteristics of cigarettes; therefore, is open to current users of tobacco products only. 
I dunno, for the right job, I might be willing to take up smoking. (That's a joke, folks.)

Huh: This Bay Area position at a small company is looking for a "research associate" on C&EN Jobs, but doesn't ask for a chemistry degree.

You're back: Been a while since I've seen an Anichem ad - they're looking for B.S./M.S./Ph.D. synthetic organic chemists.

 ACS Boston Career Fair Watch: 14 positions so far, including 4 at Unilever in Connecticut. 


  1. I do very much appreciate your Jim Carrey reference, above.

    1. It strikes me this might be a mask for something else... ;)

    2. ...but perhaps I'm just getting Carrey'd away.
