Daily Pump Trap: 3/10/11 edition

Good morning! Between March 8 and March 9, there were 44 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 6 (14%) are academically connected.

Avon calling!: Yes, that Avon. They're looking for a Ph.D. program manager for acquiring new cosmetic compounds into their collection. A degree in organic, medicinal or natural products chemistry is desired (?), along with 4 years of compound evaluation experience. They want the materials to be bioactive. (Really?)

Princeton is a lovely town: Firmenich is looking for a Ph.D. organic chemist with a yen to be an analytical chemist. HPLC and LC/MS experience desired. You'll be "[a]nalyz[ing] natural and synthetic materials, fractions and extracts to identify and quantify volatile and non-volatile molecules." Sounds like fun. There's an interesting  little note at the bottom: "Open to temporarily transfer to other affiliate during career." Wanna go to Switzerland?

Now here's an opportunity: Goodyear is looking for a Ph.D. polymer chemist or materials scientist (with organic synthesis experience) to perform research into "compounding studies on the use of natural oils in tire elastomers. Experience in chemical transformation and analysis of natural oils is preferred." Also, must be " open minded, optimistic and collaborative with a sense of urgency." Yeah, that.

Tarrytown, NY: ARMGO Pharma is a "privately held biopharmaceutical company dedicated to applying original, targeted science to the discovery and development of novel small-molecule therapeutics to treat debilitating cardiac, muscular, and neurological disorders." They're looking for a M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist to perform run their LC/MS and NMR analyses. Sounds like fun.

Lights: Cyalume is a maker of "chem-lights"; they're looking for a M.S. chemist (2+ years experience) to perform Q.C. on their processes. "Prefer experience with dye formulations, analytical instrumentation, and organic synthesis."

Merrrrrrrrrrrrrck!: 24 positions new, including a very nice intern position for some young chemical engineering student. Oh, by the way, are you a member of the American Chemical Society? Do you like chemistry? Merck wants to know if you wanna be a health economics intern or an information security intern. (Thanks to beloved commenter See Arr Oh for the reminder.)
