Daily Pump Trap: 4/27/10 edition

Good morning! From April 21 to April 26, there were 29 new positions posted on the ACS Careers database. Of these, 11 (38%) were academically connected and 1 (3%) were from our friends at Kelly Scientific Resources.

Avon calling...: Avon Products, Inc. is looking for a Ph.D. analytical chemist to work on R&D into cosmetic formulations. Previous experience with analysis of cosmetics is desired.

Vertex!: Our heroes of the last year are at it again, although with a temporary contract. Vertex is looking for a B.S./M.S. chemist to work in formulation development for 3 months -- good luck!

Like the name, anyways: Wildcat Discovery Technology seems to be looking at combinatorial approaches to developing new battery technology. They're looking for Ph.D. bench chemists with experience in electrochemistry and other energy-related fields.

Um, good luck?: The Transportation Security Administration is looking for a chemical engineer to serve as the Chief Scientist for the Office of Operational Process and Technology (OPT). Basically, it sounds like you'll be the scientific advisor for all the testing of screening equipment. Good luck with that -- hope that you can figure out a way that I can stop taking off my shoes. Please?
