Daily Pump Trap: 11/15/16 edition

A few of the positions posted at C&EN Jobs recently: 

Baltimore, MD: So here's an interesting one: "Rapafusyn Research and Development" is looking for experienced M.S./Ph.D. medicinal chemists with 10 openings. Stemming from Johns Hopkins natural products research.

Wilmington, DE: Incyte Corporation is looking for a Ph.D. medicinal chemist, with 0-2 years experience. (Zeroes!) "Post-doctoral experience is highly desired though not required."

(Friends, are we there? Are we through with asking people to do postdocs? Please?)

"Cambridge, UK or Boston, USA": AstraZeneca is looking for a senior medicinal chemist - looks like a fascinating role:
We are currently seeking a senior medicinal chemist with pre-clinical / clinical drug discovery experience to join us as a chemical toxicologist within the Predictive Compound Safety Group, a division of our Drug Safety and Metabolism (DSM) unit at AstraZeneca. Drug Safety and Metabolism (DSM) partners across the Innovative Medicine therapeutic area units for the optimization and selection of small molecules and new modalities as novel candidate drugs. 
As a medicinal chemist in the Predictive Compound Safety Group you will operate at the interface between medicinal chemistry design and drug safety, working alongside multiple project teams in the Oncology therapeutic area. In this role you will develop and apply your knowledge of medicinal chemistry in the toxicology arena to influence the quality and progress of drug discovery projects. You will develop a deep scientific understanding of mechanisms leading to compound-related toxicity through collaborations with AstraZeneca colleagues, as well as key external stakeholders.
So this is someone with a Ph.D., probably 5-10 years experience?

Washington, D.C.: One of the occasional test-writing positions that the American Institutes for Research posts. M.S., 1 year of experience desired.

  1. With regards to the AIR position, it seems the pay may be quite low for the DC area.
