Still pretty quiet: Just two positions, this Genentech process chemistry (Ph.D., 0-3 years experience) position (thumbs up!) and this Indian (?) position ("research assistant executive" - a confusing title, for sure.)
Huh: Has anyone ever seen an explicit "reverse engineering" position in chemistry before?:
This Senior Research Scientist is a subject matter expert in polymer chemistry and reverse material engineering with a strong background in conducting sample analysis through various analytical techniques.A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show (respectively) "1000+", 378, 8,413, and 14 positions for the search term "chemist."
LinkedIn shows 1,997 positions for the search term "chemist" (no quotes) and 13,340 for the search term "chemistry" (no quotes).
