Daily Pump Trap: 2/23/16 edition

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

Elkton, MD: Orbital ATK is looking for a genuine (solid) rocket (fuel) scientist; Ph.D. in chemistry. I'm going to take a wild stab and say there are 50-200 people in the United States who have the qualifications they're looking for.

Cambridge, MA: Moderna is looking for a lot of folks.

Fremont, CA:  So is Verseon. (C&EN Jobs is not where I'd be looking for a mathematician, though.)

Shanghai, China: Symrise is looking for a director of QA/QC.

San Francisco, CA: Nurix is looking for a cheminformatician; Ph.D. desired. (You can get a Ph.D. in cheminformatics?)

Frederick, MD: Leidos Biomedical Research is looking for a B.S. analytical chemist with experience in the characterization of nanoparticles. 


  1. There are a couple programs where your declared emphasis can be cheminformatics or chemical informatics. There are several more labs in other programs where your de facto doctoral program is cheminformatics. (This was the case for me)

  2. IIRC, you can get training in cheminformatics at UIndiana - Bloomington.
