Daily Pump Trap: 12/13/11 edition

Good morning! Between December 8 and December 12, there were 27 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 9 (33%) were academically connected.

Andover, MA: Cambridge Isotopes is hiring B.S. chemists with 2-4 years of experience for batch synthesis of isotopically-labeled compounds. Not exactly a growth field, but nice to hear. GMP experience desirable.

And in other news: Cambridge Isotopes is hiring a Ph.D. analytical/organic chemist for a senior QC chemist position.

Similarly named...: Cambridge Major Laboratories (in Germantown, WI, I believe) is hiring B.S./M.S. analytical chemists and a Ph.D. analytical chemist for a senior regulatory position. (Scroll down, past the 2nd shift operator position.)

Cheese: The Hilmar Cheese Company (Hilmar, CA) is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. research chemist for research and quality control work. Apart from the typical chemist requirements, you need a "[b]asic knowledge of dairy chemistry, specifically in the field of dairy protein and lactose chemistry."

Zeroes!: Agrium Agriculure Technologies (Sycalauga, AL) is looking for a Ph.D. chemist (0-5 years experience) to become a product development chemist; the company appears to make fertilizers and other products for agriculture.

Saskatchewan!: For my readers north of the border, the government of Saskatchewan would like to hire a B.S. chemist to be a hazardous materials/spill Environmental Project Officer; you will be based in Regina, Saskatoon or Prince Albert. I'm going to guess that this is a pretty thankless position, really, considering that you're going to be trying to keep the potash industry from doing the wrong environmental thing.

Ann Arbor, MI: Wacker Chemicals is looking for a M.S./Ph.D. chemist to be a production manager for their silicone/silica-based business. 5+ years experience.

Albuquerque, NM: Sandia National Laboratories is looking for a B.S. chemist to be an electrochemical technologist. Curious what the pay level for this is.


  1. Hey, a chem job in CA's Central Valley. Those are far and few (admittedly I have one now, but just temporarily).

  2. Really? Do tell. E-mail me if desired.
