Ivory Filter Flask: 3/13/2012 edition

Good morning! Between March 6 and March 12, there have been 24 academically connected ads posted on the ACS Careers website. The numbers:

Total number of ads: 24
- Postdocs: 1
- Tenure-track faculty: 15
- Temporary faculty: 7
- Lecturer positions: 2
- Staff positions: 1
- Ratio of US/non-US positions: 20/6

Casper, WY: Casper College is looking for a M.S. chemist to become a chemistry instructor. The ad mentions online classes too, which is a first for a faculty position (that I've seen.)

New York, NY: New York University desires an administrator and teacher for their organic chemistry laboratories. I'd like to think this is a nice position, but I dunno.

Wheeling, WV: Wheeling Jesuit University is looking for two professors of chemistry: an assistant professor of inorganic chemistry and an assistant professor of physical chemistry. ABD ok for these positions.

Hazleton, PA: Penn State University - Hazleton is looking for an assistant professor of chemistry; they would like you to be able to teach organic occasionally as well.

Jacksonville, IL: Illinois College is looking for a temporary 1-semester professor of general chemistry. That's an awfully short tenure.

Salem, OR: Willamette University is looking for a temporary assistant professor of organic chemistry. Wikipedia tells me that they are the Bearcats -- what in the heck is a Bearcat?


  1. According to David Wilcox, the bearcat is something you do.

    And if you don't know that song, please go look it up.

  2. Sounds like a couple bad weekends I had in college. Alcohol is one hell of a drug.

  3. Thing with the Casper position is that then you'd have to live in Wyoming! Want to be a 5-6 hour drive from the nearest semi-decent mall (in South Dakota)?
