Seattle, WA: Startup looking for an experienced (2-4 years) Ph.D. polymer chemist.
Menlo Park. CA: The SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory's SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis is searching for 2 Ph.D.-level associate staff scientists; looks to be computational in nature.
The person who takes this position is so screwed: Whoever is writing copy for Polysciences' (Warrington, PA) is completely different than before, I feel. A new opening for a Technical Services Manager (B.S., 3-5 years experience desired), with this gem:
This is a newly created position and we’re looking for someone who is a fearless critical thinker with an entrepreneurial sense. We want a rock star who is ready to take this position and make it their own![Insert Paula Abdul clapping here.]
Columbus, OH: First time I've seen one of these process formulations positions with Scotts Miracle-Gro. Looks like a good position for the right B.S.-level chemist.
A vague description: Not typical for a R&D consulting position to be posted. Huh.
The vaguest description you will see today: From Affinity Research Chemicals (Wilmington, DE):
We are seeking highly motivated synthetic chemists at MS/Ph.D level to join our dynamic team. The main job responsibilities include, but not limited to: deesign and execute scientific work such that there is a timely delivery of project objectives; solve complex synthetic problems relating to assigned projects using scientific and technical expertise.Huh, dunno what to think of that.
