Daily Pump Trap: 11/3/11 edition

Good morning! Between November 1 and November 2, there have been 23 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 14 (61%) are academically connected:

Gettin' crazy: Don't look now, but Pfizer has posted 4 positions in the last 2 days. 2 crystallography positions at the La Jolla site and 2 (?) biologic process technicians.

Danville, VA: A bona fide green job! HCL Cleantech is a cellulosic-to-biofuels company; they're looking for an A.A./B.S. chemist to be a process development technician:
Prefer a 2-4 Yr. Degree in a science and/or engineering related field to include, but not limited to, chemicals, electrical and electronics, and mechanical based fields of study and/or the equivalent work experience in laboratory, chemical, or biological operations as well as related work experience based from a military service background.
Interesting.

Santa Clara, CA: Agilent is looking for a R&D scientist / expert for their genomics division. Hard to say what that's about. (It says "expert" in the title -- is that awesome or is that more like "bagholder"?)

A broader look: Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com, Indeed and USAjobs.gov show 396, 804, 3,384 and 51 positions for the search term "chemist" respectively.
