A selection of jobs for graduates and postdocs:
A synthetic chemistry technician (£23.5-26.5k) is sought by the University of Bristol to provide technical support with chemical synthesis and support analytical instrumentation for the School of Chemistry. Sounds like a good position to potentially gain a wide variety of additional skills, including hydrogenation, EHS, vendor collaboration, procurement and supervision. BSc and GC, LCMS experience required.
The Royal Society of Chemistry is advertising their graduate training scheme– presumably getting exposure and training across a range of functions, including publishing, education, science policy and promoting chemistry. Location not specified, but would imagine it’ll be Cambridge and/or London – sounds like a great opportunity.
Johnson & Johnson appear not to like direct linking to their job adverts, so to find the next one, navigate to their career site, and search on Experienced Professional > EMEA > UK > English – somewhere there should be the science & engineering graduate programme based in Inverness (ID-1101075). This is a two-year rotational programme working in various groups across R&D functional and support areas.
Astra Zeneca has two 2-year postdoc positions available in Cheshire. The first is for a synthetic organic chemist at their Alderley Park site to work on drug discovery programmes in a medicinal chemistry role. The second is for an organic chemist at the Macclesfield site , investigating C-H insertion techniques to develop novel aromatic fluorination processes.
