Daily Pump Trap: 4/17/12 edition

Good morning! Between April 12 and April 16, there were 50 new positions posted on the ACS Careers website. Of these, 5 (10%) were academically connected and 21 (42%) were positions from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Location unknown: Life Technologies would like to hire a Ph.D. analytical chemist with expertise in LC/MS for a staff scientist position.

West Deptford, NJ: Johnson Matthey is looking for a Ph.D. organometallic chemist for a research and scale-up position; sounds like you'll be coordinating overseas research as well.

A big move: Shimadzu has posted 8 positions throughout the US in all fields (sales, technical support, etc.), such as this LC/MS position in Pleasanton, CA.

Fragments: Have experience in fragment-based lead generation-based drug discovery? AstraZeneca would like to hire you as an associate director at its Waltham, MA site. 


  1. I find it beyond tasteless that AstraZeneca would post a fake ad this quickly after sweeping layoffs. What a bunch of buffoons.

  2. Frequent travel required for the Johnson Matthey job- not my cup of tea, but someone will enjoy this!

    I wonder how current and/or former employees rate Johnson Matthey as a company? Seems like the intarwebs declares it's "meh" with the biggest complaint being work/life balance is skewed towards work.

    1. Who cares? It's a job.
