A few water chemistry positions: Denver Water has a water quality laboratory manager position (pays $7,125.73 monthly (min) to $10,689.47 monthly (max)).

    3. Having worked as a chemist in Belgium, I can assure you that you will be appalled at the amount you will have to pay in taxes.

  2. the difficulty is that pay scale for chemists in Western Europe is only about one half of what it is in US, and the income taxes and car-related expenses are significantly higher. It would make a better sense to postdoc in a good synthetic group in Europe, for one year.
