Woburn, MA: Organix is looking for M.S./Ph.D. synthetic chemists.
(Organix is looking for a M.S. chemist? Is that new?)
La Jolla, CA: Calibr is looking for synthetic/medicinal chemists for postdoctoral positions.
(Is anyone else noticing the plethora of small non-academic institutions calling entry-level Ph.D. chemists "postdoctoral fellows"? (Needed caveat: this really isn't about Calibr, that's just something that reminded me about my feelings about it.) Does anyone else think this contributes to the devaluing of entry-level Ph.D. chemists? Senior graduate students, I urge you to think about taking these positions, and asking potential employers:
- You're calling this a postdoctoral position - what kinds of unique training am I going to get?
- What is the fate of your postdocs? Where do they go?
- Will I be the first postdoc at your company? How can we assure that I get the training and mentorship implied in the title?
- Will I be allowed to publish my work?)
