Well!: It's the first one-pager in a while, with Genentech coming in strong with one of their old "BECAUSE" ads. Gilead and Grace post a nice set of positions, too. 

Good luck with that: Novartis is looking for a senior EH&S manager for their Shanghai, China site. Not to get too overly cynical, but can you imagine what that job's going to be like? You're basically going to be the senior EH&S manager in China for Novartis, too. Um, no thanks.  

I don't believe you: Gilead's rather lovely ad has the tagline "Careers for Life." Well, yes, but, well, no, I think you're trying to fool me.  

So as I was sayin': W.R. Grace is looking for a R&D scientist in their batteries program. Desired traits? Ph.D. with 1 to 5 years experience in inorganic chemistry with battery experience.  

Small college of the week: Southern Connecticut State University (New Haven, CT, student population: 7002 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for an assistant professor for physical chemistry. So if you want to be a professor at the other school in town (which has some serious football alumni!), this might be the job for you! 


  1. SCSU

    Now THERE is a party school. And the neighborhood, was nice for a while, and now it sucks.

    And the best part, it's NOT at Yale!

    Yale employees have some of the lowest morale I have ever witnessed, from top to bottom.

  2. eFarms, LLC is a start up company in Holland Michigan. We manufacture an on-site ethanol processing system for use on farms and at produce processing companies and at food & beverage companies or any other business that generates organic waste. The organic substrate is placed in the processing system with enzymes and yeast for sacchrafication and fermentation into ethanol.

    eFarms is currently looking to hire a full time chemist to be responsible for all laboratory procedures at our lab which is located at the MSU Bioeconomy Institute in Holland Michigan. The chemist will establish all lab policies and procedures and conduct yeast counting procedures and perform tests and experiments to create 'recipes' for yeast and enzyme use with various substrates.

    Salary is negotiable with an eye to future company ownership interest as the business ramps up. health care is negotiable. If interested please email Richard Edmonds at: phone: (616)395-8975
