Start-up land: A confidential Silicon Valley start-up would like "an exceptional hands-on chemist, chemical engineer, or materials scientist experienced in inorganic chemistry with strong capabilities in precursor synthesis, thin-film sol gel, and/or transition metal oxide." M.S./Ph.D. desired with experience in electrochemistry and thin film characterization.
Work from home: Nerac is a Connecticut-based company; they're looking for M.S./Ph.D. scientists who wish to be, well, business consultants, I think. Working from home is okay.
Giveth and taketh away: Novartis (Bay Area) is looking to hire ten Ph.D. chemists to be medicinal chemistry investigators. 2+ years in the industry desired, 10 openings. 10 openings! Wow. What about the 2,000 folks in Switzerland?
MMMEEERRRCCCKKK: 43 positions posted (51%), including a position for "Chef, Comptabilité Générale", which I really hope translates to "Generally Compatible Chef." That's like mid-American fare, right? Or Tex-Mex? Everyone likes Tex-Mex.
You again: KaMin, LLC is back, this time looking for a B.S. chemical engineer. Paints and coatings experience desired; duties include technical presentations on kaolin. Fun!
