Um, well: One job posting in the US, another (bigger) ad for a company in China. Big sigh, especially since the company is not even in the traditional Shanghai-area biotech/scientific hotbed. This is getting tough.
Academic jobs, though: Tenure-track positions continue to be strong, at all levels.
Fascinating academic positions: Virginia Tech's Chemical Engineering department is trying to fill a visiting professorship in chemicals distribution management. I didn't know such a specialty existed, but I'll bet there's an Aldrich employee who qualifies...
Department of Out-of-Control Acronyms (DoOoCA): The University of South Florida is searching for an assistant professor for the Center for Smart Metal-Organic Materials Advanced Research and Technology Transfer. For the not-so-detailed amongst you, this institution is abbreviated SMMARTT. I am not kidding.
Small college of the week: Hendrix College (Conway, AR, student population: 1,350, SA-LUTE!) is looking for a tenure-track assistant professor in organic chemistry. Considering this is the alma mater of chemblogosphere eminence grise Derek Lowe, this week's pick is a no brainer.
