Daily Pump Trap: 2/20/17 edition

A (very) few of the positions posted at C&EN Jobs:

Foster City, CA: Gilead is hiring a senior EH&S program manager and also a senior EH&S specialist.

"AdvanSix, previously Honeywell": A listing in Colonial Heights, Virginia for a senior research scientist. It's a M.S./Ph.D. position, with these basic qualifications:
  • MSc organic or physical organic chemistry with 5 – 10 years experience
  • Ph.D in organic or physical organic chemistry 0 – 5 years experience – highly preferred
  • Ph.D Chemical Engineer with 5-10 years extensive experience in Organic and Analytical chemistry 
  • 5 or more years of developing and testing new chemical products and finding applications for them preferred, experience optimizing and commercializing chemical processes a plus. 
That "highly preferred" is very interesting. 

Somerville, MA: Voxel8 is searching for a senior polymer chemist; no education requirements, 6+ years experience. Listed salary is 85-100k.

  1. "5 or more years of developing and testing new chemical products and finding applications for them preferred" seems kind of ambiguous.

  2. "AdvanSix, previously Honeywell" - I need to get a job with one of those consulting outfits that dream up cute names for chemical industry spin-offs. Lanxess, Atofina/Arkema, Innovene, Evonik, Covestro, Versum, Hexion, Momentive, Cognis, etc. Seems like pretty much any chemical company you've never heard of is a divested division of some well-known firm.

    1. I particularly enjoy Actelion's new spinoff name after the JnJ purchase: "R&D NewCo"
