Daily Pump Trap: 10/14/10 edition

Good morning! Between October 12 and October 13,  there were 17 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 7 (41%) are academically connected and 1 (6%) is from Kelly Scientific.

Yeah, you're the guy/gal, sure: FMC is looking for a principal process engineer (B.S. ChemE). This is one of those positions that I'd be really suspicious of: "This position offers you the unique opportunity to "keep your hand in the game" and also play a leadership role in a global S&P 500 corporation." Look, if you're looking to keep your hand in a game as complex as chemical engineering, you're out of the game!

New Jersey: Jacobus Pharmaceutical is looking for a Ph.D. medicinal chemist with experience in small library work; the company is working on anti-malarials and anti-tuberculosis compounds.

Carlsbad: Regulus Therapeutics is searching for a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist (3+ years experience) to perform HPLC and LC/MS on oligonucleotides, peptides and small molecules. Carlsbad is a pretty lovely place, so far as I could tell from the freeway.

Santa Clara, CA: Abbott desires a B.S./M.S./Ph.D. senior stability scientist (6+ years experience) to act as principal investigator into drug stability studies. Be sure to set your oven temps correctly!
