Midweek Job Roll: 2nd March

Continuing on from the job marathon yesterday...

This development chemist position in Hertfordshire sounds very much like the one advertised in the first LabMonkey Job Roll 2 months ago, but now with a much greater emphasis on the extended periods of time that will be spent in India. Experience working in a production/pharmaceutical environment, GMP and preparing documentation are required for this 12-month contract. £25-30k + up to 33% shift allowance when not working standard hours.

A computational scientist with experience in DFT, ab initio methods and modeling using quantum mechanical software is desired by a catalyst manufacturer in Berkshire. The 18-month contract will be looking into low temperature fuel cell catalysts. Salary “competitive”.

Corrocoat Ltd are advertising for an R&D chemist with some lab experience to test experimental formulations. Based in Leeds, experience in paints and coating is desirable but not essential – so redecorating that spare room may be enough to qualify. £18-21k.

If only as an eye-opener, it’s worth reading the job description for this scientific officer – risk management position with the European Chemicals Agency. If you have experience with REACH, know what IUCLID and CHESAR are, and are the type of person that would be happy writing documents akin to the advert – then you have 3 weeks to apply for “THE JOB”.

ChemistryWorldJobs (courtesy of the RSC) are back in fine form after weeding out the C++ jobs and returning to scientific recruitment. They have a swathe of chemist positions, including:

  • an inorganic development chemist role in the North that would suit a PhD/postdoc with catalyst experience. Working with academics and commerce, you’ll be developing new products and processes for the diesel catalysis market. £25-35k
  • a pharmaceutical process engineer role in the South for a qualified chemical engineer with strong pharmaceutical and GMP experience. Working with production and R&D teams to develop new and optimise current manufacturing processes. Includes managing projects and people. £40k
  • an assistant chemist role in Oxfordshire for a graduate chemist with some lab experience (preferably in characterising and testing catalysts). Working in a team developing heterogenous catalysts and evaluating their performance. £20-25k
  • and a job with Britest for an experienced chemist/chemical engineer to deliver innovations in process design through collaborations. Based in the North West (or potentially from home) but with significant international travel - £competitive.

It’s pleasing to say there are many more relevant positions on their revamped website that aren’t listed above, so it’s well worth a visit.

  1. Thanks for the mention LabMonkey. The site is now one month old and has been visited by over 7,800 users resulting in 528 job applications.

    We have high hopes and are very pleased so far. Hope you are too.
