Do you know of a current job opening or employer that might be hiring?

Nancy Jackson

If so, please post basic information about the position and employer to help your colleagues.   Also, please insert tags for the state (e.g. New Mexico) and field of science (e.g., pharmaceutical) to assist those searching.  THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PAYING IT FORWARD ON THIS CRITICAL SUBJECT!

    There are quite a few positions listed at www.dow.com/careers.   You can search the listing  by geography, location, or discipline; postings can weekly.  Examples of current postings are:    analytical chemist (Minnesota), R&D interns (several locations), polyurethanes scientist (Texas), and quality manager (Massachusetts, 10 yrs experience).     I recommend that job seekers don't restrict themselves to departments such as R&D but look at the entire listing for roles that suit their background and interests.

    Nancy, as a result of registering on www.job.com, I receive periodic alerts of job openings.  I strongly sugges that anyone seeking employment explore this site and follow up on the job openings.  Registrants are asked to complete form and share resume.  Evidently, this information is used to identify positions that are best fits.

    Other people have given you good adivce.

     

    I would also stress finding out about companies and checking for job openings tha may be listed on their websites. You might also want to use an Internet search engine to search by company name plus key words such as "job" or "job opening."

     

    Good luck!

    Job-hunting chemists would do well to periodically check the careers section of jobsites of major oilfield service companies such as Halliburton Services, Schlumberger and Weatherford. A survey reported in the “Houston Chronicle” indicated that U.S. demand for oilfield chemicals will increase more than 8% annually from now until 2015. Demand is forecast at $13.6 billion in 2015. A major reason for the growth is increased demand for hydraulic fracturing chemicals. Annual demand growth for these chemicals is predicted to be nearly 10%.

    There is a postdoctoral opening in my lab, which will involve functionalizing and characterizing single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs).  Functionalizations will include attaching groups to SWCNTs covalently and by complexation.  The characterization includes those techniques typically used in organic chemistry (such as NMR, IR, UV, etc) and others (such as Raman, TEM, etc.).

    The position is currently available, so I will be more interested in potential candidates who are located in the US.

    Please forward this to potential candidates who you think might be interested.

    Thanks in advance!
