Daily Pump Trap: 7/2/15 edition
It's the summer, which means that it's the slow season for C&EN Jobs. Since Tuesday, it appears there have been no positions posted there. So instead:
Boston: The Boston Craiglist has a sci/biotech page; it lists a whole 6 positions for the search term "chemist." (Boston/Cambridge folks, what is your favorite online job hunting resource?)
SFO: Not much more for the San Francisco sci/biotech category, but this M.S. chemist/software position sounds interesting.
A random survey of pharma companies for the search term "chemist" in North America:
Gilead: 0 open positions.
Pfizer: 5 open positions.
Merck: 10 open positions.
A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) 985, 637, 9537 and 17 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 743 positions for the title "chemist", with 26 for "research chemist", 74 for "analytical chemist", 11 for "organic chemist", 1 for "synthetic chemist" and 3 for "medicinal chemist."
