Ivory Filter Flask: 6/12/12 edition

Good morning! Bertween June 5 and June 11, there were 8 new academic positions posted on the ACS Careers website. The numbers:

Total number of ads: 8
- Postdocs: 2
- Tenure-track faculty:  3
- Temporary faculty: 1  
- Lecturer positions:  1
- Staff positions:  1
- Ratio of US/non-US positions: 6 / 2

Chapel Hill, NC: The Structural Genomics Consortium at UNC-Chapel Hill would like to hire synthetic organic chemistry postdocs for a multidisciplinary chemical biology program; some of the positions are aimed at chromatin regulation research.

Baltimore, MD: The Johns Hopkins University would like to hire a Ph.D. organic chemist for its undergraduate laboratories; this appears to a be a postdoctoral teaching appointment.

Jacksonville, AL: Jacksonville State University is looking for an assistant professor of organic chemistry; they'd like a candidate who would maintain an active research program for undergraduate. Video conferencing might be a part of the job, apparently. (Hmmm.) Starts at 45k. (Hmmmm.)

Tacoma,  WA: Pacific Lutheran University is seeking a visiting assistant professor of chemistry; biochemistry and analytical chemistry interests desired, but not necessary.

The Bronx, New York: Albert Einstein College of Medicine is looking for a director for its translational medicine program. "The program will support all pre-clinical stages including computational drug design, fragment-based discovery, chemical elaboration, animal disease model testing, PK/PD and toxicology, medicinal chemistry, drug candidate stability, and local IND approval. The successful candidate will have experience in managing several of these elements and will have demonstrated achievements in the drug development pipeline in an academic and/or pharmaceutical environment." Got that? Sounds interesting.

University, MS: The University of Mississippi desires an "instructional assistant professor" of lower-division chemistry, which is apparently a "permanent non-tenure-track position." Oooh, where do I sign?

  1. Being my alma mater I find the PLU postings concerning. I hope all is well with the profs who have those positions.
