Overall positions (
Summary: Sparse interface. Links for application pretty standard. Lots of UK recruiter positions for chemists, a healthy number of recruited positions for the US, as well. (YOH seems to like to post there.) I note that it appears that Nature Jobs allows free postings by employers -- interestingly, there doesn't seem to be any seriously weird positions posted, even with that barrier to entry dropped. There's a surprising number of US pharma positions, some of which haven't been advertised at C&EN. This Pfizer process chemistry senior scientist position out of Groton hasn't been posted at C&EN; neither (I believe) has this Lilly biomolecules research advisor position. I wonder why?
It's also interesting to see industrial chemistry jobs in Europe (like this plastics position in France); those rarely make it into C&EN Jobs.
tl;dr Science Jobs has a paltry amount of industrial positions for chemists. Nature Jobs has a lot more, especially for non-US positions. Both have interfaces that are spare, functional.
