Daily Pump Trap: 10/8/15 edition

Good morning! A few of the positions posted at C&EN Jobs this past week:

Bartlesville, OK: Chevron Phillips is looking for a Ph.D. polymer chemist for a position as a "Polyethylene Stabilization Chemist." Who knew such a position existed?

Alpharetta, GA: Lonza looking to hire an experienced (3-5 years) M.S./Ph.D. analytical chemist.

Berkeley, CA: Looks like Paul Alivisatos is looking for a B.S. chemist for a research technician position; probably a real plum, even if it is a one-year contract with an option (?) to extend.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) "1000+", 643, 10,362 (whoa!) and 13 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 1504 positions for the job title "chemist", with 108 for "analytical chemist", 26 for "research chemist", 14 for "organic chemist", 6 for "synthetic chemist" and 2 for "medicinal chemist."
