A few of the jobs posted on C&EN Jobs in the last week:
This "senior research scientist"
position at BMS is interesting, in that it seems aimed at a B.S./M.S. chemist that's spent 10-15 years at the bench. Anyone know what it is about?
Shanghai, China: This position with the USP is pretty interesting:
The person in this role will be responsible for the management, leadership and execution of the strategy for USP's operations in China including all laboratory activities supporting USP's monograph and reference standard needs, monograph modernization, and other allied compendial programs.
250-325k. Wow. Ph.D., 10-15 years experience in pharmaceutical analytical chemistry, etc., needed.
KaMin is a kaolin clay manufacturer -- they're looking for a lab tech.
They're offering $19.90 - 25.76, which is pretty good, I'm guessing. (Are they really going to pay that?)
East Syracuse, NY:
This "product marketing chemist"
for a GC instrumentation company is interesting; claiming 25-30% travel time. Considering your clients are in petrochemicals, I'm guessing it's more like 50% or higher.
