Daily Pump Trap: 6/30/16

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

RTP, NC: AgBiome is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. formulation scientist. 

Non-profit process development?: About once or twice a year, there's a position like this one from the International Partnership for Microbicides; they're looking for an associate director of process chemistry to oversee CMO work on their commercial projects. Seems like that would be an interesting place for someone who had lots of pharma experience, and wanted to apply it to a different sector. 

Kennesaw, GA: Deerland Enzymes, Inc. is a leading specialty formulator and contract manufacturer of enzyme-based dietary supplements. They're looking for a M.S./Ph.D. research and development manager. 

(There are enzyme-based dietary supplements? How does that work?) 

New York City, NY: Not every day that you see two criminalist positions for the New York Medical Examiner's office. ($49k to $59k in New York City must not be easy; I wonder what that means, in terms of where you live and such.) 

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) "1000+", 415, 9004 and 25 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 2,174 positions for the job title "chemist", with 197 for "analytical chemist", 43 for "organic chemist", 31 for "research chemist", 33 for "medicinal chemist" and 7 for "synthetic chemist."

Beautiful Edmonton: Fair number of positions at Gilead in Edmonton in process development.

Pearl River, NY: I see Pfizer is hiring a Ph.D. analytical chemist to do nanoparticle/ADC research.

    1. Sorry, the "beautiful" thing must be subliminal messaging from some Gilead friends of the blog. I don't even remember writing it.

  3. ouff, $60K in NYC probably means you're living in Rochester.

    1. No, just in jersey. Which really isn't any better.

    2. Not really. I go to Columbia as a grad student and make $36k. I can live in Manhattan, go on vacations, and eat out for dinner at least 3-4 times a week. Also, I have money I've been able to invest. $60k would be quite enough for an individual.

    3. I don't save anything living on a post-doc salary, let alone invest and live it up like anon here. All money goes into rent, food and transport. I eat out only once a week, not that it's a particularly meaningful metric (you could be eating out at McDonalds or at Keens). Unless you have outside financial support (eg. trust fund kid), or have the food requirements of a pigeon, I am extremely surprised to hear you are prospering with $36k while I only scrape by with another $6k annually.

      @anon 1:37AM: Columbia provides you with guaranteed, subsidized housing; I really don't think that your experience is applicable to this situation.
