In the fight between grazing the job boards and making the most of an unseasonably sunny weekend in the UK, I’m afraid the former lost out. Here is the belated weekend job roll:
These two positions sound very similar – both being an opportunity for a graduate/post-doc to train as a technical/scientific writer for an international company in the south east. Good interpersonal and observational skills are required, as the writing output will be from direct observation or shadowing of people. The second advert also mentions experience of Operations in the oil/gas industry being an advantage.
Almac have vacancies for chemists to work at their Craigavon (synthetic chemistry) and Belfast (biocatalytic chemistry) sites. Working at this CRO, the role will involve everything from screening and optimization up to process development and production. Looks like a great opportunity, with the added bonus of 6.8 weeks holiday.
DSTL (Defence Science and Technology Laboratories) was profiled here last month as part of a series on civil service science employers. They now have 11 (count them, eleven!) two-year contracts open for graduate analysts/engineers (vacancy 23275-2) in Portsmouth, with some duties in Sevenoaks. Entrants to this graduate scheme will work in a number of teams in the Land Battlespace Systems Department. Suitable for graduates of a numerate degree subject - £23k. There’s also still time to apply for the trainee trials conducting office role detailed in the original post (Porton Down, £26.5k)
Degree in chemistry/biology/food science? Experience of food/beverage manufacture and change management? Heineken in Herefordshire needs you to be their Head of Department – Cider Production.
Finally, an agency is seeking PhDs and graduates with a 1st/2.1 for a company in the south east to fill a number of roles: a development chemist (kilo-lab experience), an analytical chemist (recent graduate) and multiple organic chemists (various experience levels, to carry out multi-gram synthesis).
