A few positions from the job boards that require little or no experience post-degree or PhD.
The Royal Society of Chemistry is seeking applicants for the position of publishing editor in Cambridge. Duties include contributing to the daily operation of peer review, editing and publication, and helping to build information databases to support the chemical community. Applications open all year round, but apply by 15th July for the August assessment centre.
A Gloucestershire-based firm specialising in precious metal development and manufacture is looking for a graduate production chemist (£18-24k). The role entails developing and testing trial formulations, manufacturing products and providing technical support to the production team. Previous experience is beneficial but not essential.
A not-for-profit organisation that develops software for the pharmaceutical sector is recruiting a graduate sales executive (£24k basic + £4-6k OTE). Based in Birmingham, with European travel, responsibilities will include business development, account management and technical support. Six month's commercial/lab experience is required – presumably an industrial placement would be eligible.
A development scientist is sought by BBInternational, a partner for assay development and immunoassay contract manufacture based in Dundee. The advert is scarce in details, but the position covers all phases of R&D, and involves improvement activities. Minimum 2:2 required, experience working in a cGMP/ISO9001 lab is advantageous.
Syngenta is hiring physical organic chemists (£26-40k) at their Jealott’s Hill site in Berkshire. Working in the Process Science Group, the successful applicants will “translate cutting-edge thinking into new process and product technology” to deliver improved manufacturing processes. PhD and/or process research experience required.
