Daily (?) Pump Trap: 2/19/10 edition

Good morning! Including February 11 through 18, there were 36 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of those, 20 (56%) are academically associated and just 1 (3%) is from our friends at Kelly Scientific Resources.

W.R. Grace: They have 2 postdoctoral positions open (adhesives and polymer chemistry) and one full-time Ph.D. formulations chemist.

Bet you're a skilled beer craftsman: Novozymes Biologicals is looking for a Ph.D. scientist to work on fermentation processes. Don't know why you're looking through the ACS, but there you are.

Interesting...: Sappi Fine Paper in Portland, Maine is looking for a research scientist with "experience in the area of polymer science and radiation curable materials." Huh. That's not something you hear every day. 

Organix: Organix is a synthesis CRO that's been around a while. Each year (I think), they advertise for synthetic postdocs; this year is no exception. Any alumni want to comment? 


  1. "Huh. That's not something you hear every day."

    Please tell me you are joking. More and more polymeric coatings are being UV/EB processed all the time. The other options are to disperse the polymer from solvent (i.e., generate green house gases) or water (long drying times in a oven). Optical coatings, floor coatings, pressure-sensitve and other adhesives, ... the list is endless.

    The RSC just introduced their new journal - "Polymer Chemistry", and lookie lookie, the first article in it is about a "click" reaction. No, not the Cu-mediated Huisgen reaction, but a UV-cured thiol-ene.

    Look at if you need more applications.

  2. I'm not joking, but now I'm educated! I was thinking ionizing radiation, not UV. Duh.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Whenever I here radiation I think of ionizing radiation. Definitely not UV, IR, radio waves.
