While most job sites had 10-20% more positions advertised than last week, the pickings appeared fairly slim. Here are the highlights:
Disillusioned with outsourced IT support? Improve things with this 12-month temporary contract in scientific & desktop systems support. Rather than training an IT professional how to use scientific software, this role is aimed at scientists (preferably from pharma) with good IT skills to provide 2nd line support to 400 users. £25-30k, based in Horsham but occasional travel to Europe to train helpdesk staff.
Temporary role advertised for an R&D organic chemist to work on API and scale-up in the North East. £20-25k.
PhD-qualified research scientist sought to design and evaluate heterogeneous, homogeneous and asymmetric (both chemo- and bio-) catalytic processes for the Pharmaceutical and Fine Chemical Market. Postdoc preferable. £28-33k, based in Cambridge.
Further PhD-qualified chemists are wanted in Oxford to work on the development of organic/inorganic functionalised materials as a synthetic organic chemist. £22-25k.
GrowHow – a UK fertilizer and chemicals company – is advertising for a day chemist to work at their head office near Chester. This will involve sampling and analytical testing, maintenance of equipment and improvement of analytical techniques. Experience in an ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 environment is advantageous. Salary up to £30k.
The nicely revamped RSC job board – ChemistryWorldJobs – appears to have been unfortunately spammed by at least one agency that's posting the same positions in duplicate adverts, multiple times per week. If, however, you are a software engineer with experience in C, then one of these adverts for positions in Liverpool, Cambridge, Glasgow, Kingston or Surbiton may be of interest. And yes, this is the same keen agency as last month.
If you’d like to join the fun, a scientific recruitment consultant is being sought in Leeds for £20-30k.
