From the inbox: Novartis associate medchem position

From an astute reader, a position w/NIBR in Cambridge:
This position requires a B.S. or M.S. degree in Chemistry with at least 3 years experience in the synthesis and characterization of organic compounds. Experience with common spectroscopy (NMR, IR, UV, MS) and analytical techniques required. Experience with chromatography purification systems required. Good written and oral communication skills are required for effective drug discovery team participation. For faster consideration, please include your research summary as part of your resume.
Best of luck!  


  1. Sounds like the boilerplate position they've been posting for the last 5 years. But who knows, maybe this time it's real, and not just a resume-collecting exercise.

  2. Applied for this position as a qualified candidate yesterday. Rejected today. Apologies to HR for interrupting the Angry Birds marathon.
