Well, this is a nice change:
Big, full pager from Merck, lots of positions.

"Belong to the European top": The Technical University of Denmark is opening the European Graduate School on Sustainable Energy Technology, with 6 postdocs. Not quite sure what I think of this, but it certainly is fashionable.

The trouble with articles: The University of Ottawa is looking for a catalysis chair, which is nice. Their motto is "l'universite canadienne", which is translated as "Canada's university." Wow -- how's that for a bold claim?

Small college of the week: The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (Socorro, NM, student population: 1846 -- SA-LUTE!) is looking for an assistant professor in organic chemistry. You'd be able to eat green chile stew on a regular basis, which is a treat.
