Daily Pump Trap: 11/23/10 edition

Good morning! Between November 18 and November 22, there were 45 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of them, 26 (58%) are academically connected.

Outsource yourself: Albany Molecular is hiring for their international locations; if you're a B.S. through Ph.D., there's work in Hungary, Hyderabad and Singapore. (That last one's sort of tempting. Sort of.)

Pigments: Sun Chemical is searching for a M.S./Ph.D. chemist with more than 5 years experience in pigment technology for a group leader position. "The Leader of Effect Pigments Technology proposes, initiates, and manages the development from ideation through product launch of new effect pigment products and processes." Ideation? Sounds, um, fancified.

Bioseparations: Dionex is searching for a M.S./Ph.D. chemist with experience in separations of proteins and nucleic acids. "Substantial knowledge of set-ups and operation of liquid chromatography systems, including hardware, software and consumables."

Spectroscopy: Total Petrochemicals (the French one, I think) is looking for a chemist to perform FTIR and NMR spectroscopy in support of their research functions.


  1. I think it's Hungary that's sort of tempting.

  2. @Tumbler: Right on! Goulash, Chicken Paprikash, Poppyseed rolls, and Dobos cake are delicious! Plus, Budapest is far more affordable and down-to-earh than most cities in Western Europe. Singapore is supposed to be super-clean and have awesome food too, but I heard the professional folks there are Uber-Type-A and humorless.

  3. there is also Solvo Biotechnology in Szeged, Hungary(they are hiring only biologists right now)
