Analytical Chemistry Jobs Market – 23rd May 2016

Each week, CK Science is providing a snapshot of the analytical chemistry jobs market. Over time, we aim to give you a picture of how it changes and evolves, and most importantly, how this may impact on you depending on overall demand and seasonal changes. So whether you are an Analyst looking for a new science job or an employer seeking new Chemist to join your team, we hope that this market snapshot helps you with your decision making.

Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many analytical chemistry jobs have been advertised within the previous week.

This summary was completed on Monday 23rd May and relates to adverts posted for Analytical Chemists on:

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV Library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs.

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 477 Chemistry jobs were published last week, with:

  • 363 permanent roles
  • 114 temporary or contract roles

This week we have tracked a small uplift in the number of scientific jobs being advertised. These roles are predominantly contract and temporary positions, which implies that science recruitment is following the same trend CK is tracking in its other divisions.

We have identified a pattern of behaviour that we are attributing to the upcoming Brexit Referendum and the uncertainty around the UK’s future. As such, CK clients are opting to recruit contract staff rather than commit to permanent expansion of their workforce, thereby safe guarding them against whatever decision comes from the vote. As the results are not due until 23-24 June, we foresee this continuing for the coming weeks.

Pfizer Separate Divisions to Allow Growth

Pharmaceutical company Pfizer’s decision to separate certain divisions could lead to a larger break up in order for further growth, including in employment, reports forbes.com.

The splitting of the animal health and baby formula businesses from the main company is the beginning of a process to unlock value within the company. Two other sectors will be kept in order to raise their value to $46 billion combined, though investors had hoped the company would split into five distinct divisions.

The two that have broken off were the obvious choices; the animal health business is worth nearly $4 billion so can stand on its own, and the nutrition side is the one that investors were most eager to see separate.

Though some investors may be disappointed that Pfizer hasn’t split all its divisions at once, it means that sectors that could not currently compete on their own have time to grow to the point where they can be world leaders in their own right, potentially creating a large number of jobs worldwide.

£100m Waste-to-Chemicals Site to Open in Teeside

iStock_000006963239Medium[1]As reported by The Engineer, Solvert Ltd, a renewable chemical sector entrepreneur, have announced their exciting plans to develop the ‘UK’s first manufacturing facility’.

The new facility will be producing industrial chemicals from domestic and commercial waste, on Teeside. This will involve advanced biological fermentation processes to produce renewable n-butanol, acetone, hydrogen and electricity from wet biodegradable waste.

The chemicals manufacturer has managed to secure an impressive £200,000 of funding to help develop the project which includes a £100,000 investment from the Finance for Business North East Proof Concept (POC) Fund, along with support from Business Link and the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC).

CEO of Solvert stated,  “The current drive within the UK is to divert waste away from landfill sites into, more productive uses – such as feedstocks for other processes.”

“Organic waste, such as spoilage from supermarkets or the leftover food from our kitchens at home and in restaurants, holds immense potential for conversion into valuable chemicals to replace those produced from crude oil.

“At the moment, hydrogen, acetone and n-butanol come from non-renewable petrochemical sources and there are no UK producers.  N-butanol and acetone are currently imported into the UK from Western Europe and the US.

“A significant market for these chemicals already exists in the North East as well as other parts of the UK, and more customers from further afield are also looking for a greener alternative to products derived from crude oil.  These products form part of our daily lives as they are used extensively to produce paint or plastics such as Perspex.”

In addition, an experienced Chemical Engineer stated, “The fact that we are producing them in the UK and reducing imports is also a huge bonus.”

University Science Jobs to Face Cuts

Process_Development_ChemistAs reported on the Financial Times website, science departments will be hardest hit by cuts in academic science jobs as universities are forced to react to the squeeze in public funding. This has sparked concern that the UK economy will face a shortage of scientific expertise.

A recent survey conducted by the Financial Times of over 40 universities revealed that there is plans to make cuts in science, technology, engineering and mathematics departments in universities across the country. A total of 99 of 131 academic institutions will face a cut in funding in the year 2011, according to the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

The cuts in university science jobs reflect the difficulties in maintaining subjects which require extensive facilities. Richard Lambert, Director General of the CBI stated “Science subjects are more expensive to teach than arts subjects, but they are of huge value to the economy.”

The results of the survey have brought about fears among business leaders and scientists that Britain could have insufficient science experts in its future scientific workforce to drive economic growth forward. Gail Cardew, head of programmes at the Royal Institution, one of Britain’s most renowned scientific bodies, said: “By 2014 there will be more than 2m extra jobs which need Stem skills. Where are these people going to come from if universities are going to make cuts in science teaching?”

GSK Offers to Share Scientific Data to Wipe Out Tropical Diseases

Mosquito

In recent years, pharmaceutical companies have come under increasing pressure to change their approach to providing cheap drugs to people in the developing world. Many have faced fierce criticism for their failure to drop prices for HIV drugs while millions died in Africa and Asia, for defending patents. However, it seems the Chief Executive of GSK, Andrew Witty has a plan to fix this problem.

As reported in the Daily Telegraph, GSK is planning to share scientific data and laboratories in a bid to wipe out tropical diseases, such as malaria.  Andrew Witty, the Chief Executive of GSK who recently spent time in some of the world’s poorest continents, including Africa, said the global pharmaceutical company has a “genuine appetite to change the landscape of healthcare for the world’s poorest people”. In fact, it is estimated that Africa carries 70% of the world’s healthcare burden, but only receives 3% of healthcare resources.

In 2009, GSK announced it would create a patent pool for some of its existing products and not-for-profit-pricing on a variety of drugs for the developing world. In addition, the pharmaceutical giant plans to release 13,500 of its compounds that are believed to have the potential to be developed into new malaria treatments.

GSK will also operate an ‘Open Lab’ scheme whereby the company will open one of its laboratories in Tres Santocs, Spain, for non-GSK scientists to use to investigate treatments for other tropical diseases. The lab will accommodate 60 scientists who will benefit from £4.9m of funding from GSK to help with their research.  Speaking of this innovative ‘Open Lab’ scheme, Witty stated, Speaking before leaving for New York, Mr. Witty said: “Malaria is a dreadful disease which stalks the fields and villages of many parts of the least developed world. It has been an intractable problem for decades. Enormous progress has been made through bed net programmes, for example, but a really effective treatment has been somewhat elusive. We need to enlist the help of scientists around the world and to make it as easy as possible for that brilliant scientist, wherever they are, to find that initial spark that could be the breakthrough.”
