Big Pharma are recruiting! Albeit in a senior and somewhat specific role. GSK are looking for a senior development scientist in Weybridge in the New Product Development group - a formulation/analytical role with technology development. If you pass the 350-word essential and desired qualifications bill – including already being an NPD expert - then apply by 22nd Jan.
Emigrate! Earn the Aussie equivalent of £50-70k for developing and carrying out research on uranium leaching at the Australian Minerals Research Centre (AMRC) in Perth. If you have a PhD, research background in uranium and preferably uranium processing, you have 1 month to change your life.
Big it up! An overly keen recruitment agency wants this job to be seen. Apparently there’s an Awesome, European, Chief Chemist, Management position available in Surrey, UK. One hopes the finder’s fee commission on this £35-40k job more than pays for the 6 near-identical adverts placed for it.
Pyrotechnics! Hope for graduates in the form of this entry-level position as a development chemist for a cool-sounding “High tech manufacturer of defence countermeasures”. First class degree or 2:1, some industrial placement experience probably preferred.
Finally, if you’ve spent 3 years studying for your BSc, have already had a job with experience in GLP and tech transfer to manufacturing, and still don’t mind earning £21-23k, there’s a permanent R&D chemist role available in the northeast.
