Daily Pump Trap: 10/28/10 edition

Good morning! Between October 26 and October 27, there were 44 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 6 (14%) were academically connected and 1 (2%) was from Kelly Scientific.

Nice work, if you can get it: Cubist Pharmaceuticals is looking for a Ph.D. chemist to be director of medicinal chemistry. "The primary responsibilities for this scientist will include the direct management and supervision of a medicinal chemistry group of 6-8 chemists..." Wait -- Cubist can't have only 6 to 8 med chemists, can it? Probably not.

This seems important: Cryolife desires a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist to run its analytical chemistry lab. They are a "leader in the processing and distribution of implantable living human tissues for use in cardiac and vascular surgeries throughout the U.S. and Canada." Huh.

HT Purification: Abbott is looking for a new Ph.D. chemist to work in its purification group; experience with both analytical and organic chemistry is desired.

The sky is your laboratory: CO2Mer wants 2 Ph.D. organic chemists to work on its proprietary research; lots of expertise in synthetic chemistry and experience in "synthetic methodologies employing carbon dioxide (including supercritical carbon dioxide) " is desired.

ACS Virtual Career Fair: Nov. 2 and 3 -- don't forget.


  1. Isn't Cubist the company that fires all their med chemists every time they get a drug candidate?

  2. Isn't Mr Rudy Baum the journalist who refuses to look the unemployment issues of chemists in the eye?
