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

Des Moines, IA: Not every day you see an IP law position located in the Hawkeye State.

Dayton, OH: I would really like to know what this position is about:
UES is seeking a Chemical Biologist to lead the toxicology-high content analysis effort in support of USAFSAM at the Air Force Research Laboratory – Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH. The successful candidate will focus on automation and cell culture screening for toxicants and genetic/phenotypic markers as well as high-throughput analysis. Some of the primary functions of the role will include:
  • Development of cell culture screening system
  • Development of high-content analysis pipeline
  • Attending and presenting at lab meetings, conferences and workshops
  • Provide broad technical support to the HCA team

  1. The Air Force has always had an interest in high-energy materials, particularly for things that are expected to exceed escape velocity once. They aren't exempt from regulations about brownfields and industrial exposure however, so they have a fairly active program that concerns itself with the toxicology of some rather unusual compounds. I thought that calling the people who ran screening programs chemical biologists was somewhat mainstream these days, though I could certainly be wrong about that.
