Fairly slim pickings from the jobsites so far this week – but here are a couple of the highlights:
Commission a power station! Energy company seeks a chemist for an 18-month contract on a negotiable salary – in a number of locations. Duties to include looking after the water treatment plant, checking chemical-related paperwork, and detecting chemical risks. Just have to fight off all the other competition from those with experience in the construction, commission and operation of power stations.
Parallels are often drawn between cooking and chemistry – here’s an opportunity to make the switch. A food company in Berkshire is looking for a permanent associate principal scientist to carry out process research to improve capacity and capability. Sounds like a good six sigma opportunity. £42-50k.
Three businesses are advertising for multiple positions. Biopharmaceuticals company Vernalis are looking for medicinal chemists with 1 years experience (can include industrial placement) to be based in Cambridge (£22k). Quotient BioResearch in Cardiff recently acquired Amersham Radiolabelling Services from GE Healthcare – and are recruiting 3 permanent chemists to carry out radiolabelled synthesis. Finally, a paints and coatings specialist in the Northeast are seeking chemists with some lab experience to develop new coatings and identify new technology platforms. Opportunities to develop in a technical or commercial role.
