Daily Pump Trap: 11/22/11 edition

Good morning! Between November 17 and November 22, there were 42 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 25 (60%) are academically connected.

Miracles of Science!: DuPont has 3 positions posted, including a Ph.D. chemist position with 3+ years experience with industrial use of gas chromatography. 

Los Alamos, NM: Los Alamos National Laboratories is looking for a Ph.D. synthetic chemist for a postdoctoral position; experience with polymer synthesis would be helpful. Also, an inorganic Ph.D. postdoctoral position is available. 

Lincoln, NE: LNK Chemsolutions is hiring a B.S./M.S./Ph.D. biochemist for a "junior biochemist" position. 3 years experience required for a bachelors, descending to zero for the Ph.D. 

New York, NY: MSKCC is looking for a Ph.D. synthetic chemist for a "full time" position in a multidisciplinary group looking at chaperone molecules. I'm curious if this is a real position or a gussied-up postdoc. Heterocyclic synthesis experience desired. 

Birmingham, AL: Southern Research Institute is looking for a Ph.D. synthetic chemist for a postdoctoral position in a metastasis biology laboratory. 

Huh: Tutor.com is looking for online math and science tutors; 100 (!) openings, $10-15/hour (ugh.) 


  1. I'm curious what MSKCC would pay for a chemist. Pretty tough to live well even in outer boroughs on <$200K/year.

  2. "Southern Research Institute"

    Do they have an engineering department?

  3. How awesome is this? MSKCC just (an hour ago) clarified that it was a postdoc. Ohsigh.
