For those that don’t fancy a career in organic chemistry...
A synthetic and materials chemist is sought to carry out R&D focusing on cadmium-free quantum dots, for a nanomaterials company in the North West. Experience in the synthesis of nanomaterials and colloid chemistry desired.
In what can only be the same company, a vacancy is also advertised for a nanomaterials surface chemist, to develop formulations of colloidal systems and nanomaterials. Strengths must be demonstrated in polymer science and experience in colloid/emulsion formation.
Two waste management companies require chemists with experience in the industry. One is in Staffordshire, looking for a field-based chemist to work on the storage and treatment of wastes (£26-28k). The other is in Norfolk, seeking a chemist to assess hazardous waste and prepare consignment notes (£20-30k).
A 6-month contract is available for a shift chemist/analytical chemist to do sample prep/analysis at a manufacturing company in Dartford. Atomic Absorption ICP experience required. £30k.
A 3-month contract is offered in Wales by a chemical contract manufacturer for a process chemist to carry out process development for active pharmaceutical ingredients and fine chemicals.
A near-identical advert – also from Reed Scientific - promises a 3-month contract in the North East for an organic chemist.
