Good morning! Between July 23 and July 29, there were 13 new academically related positions posted in C&EN Jobs. The numbers:

Postdocs: 1
Tenure-track: 8
Temporary faculty: 1
Lecturers: 0
Staff: 3
US/non-US: 13/0

And the 2014 season is upon us!: Lots of assistant professor gigs being advertised for Fall 2014 now. It's still July, but it might as well be September, seems like.

San Luis Obispo, CA: Cal Poly SLO advertising for an assistant professor of organic chemistry position. Also, tenure-track positions in biochemistry.

Wellesley, MA: Wellesley College, looking for an assistant professor of inorganic chemistry.

Towson, MD: Towson University, looking for an assistant professor of organic chemistry.

Chicago, IL: The University of Chicago, broadly looking for an assistant prof.

And to round out the 2014 stuff: University of Florida, looking for an organic chemistry prof. Also, Middlebury College.

Today in random postdocs: Here's one studying nanotechnological pesticides in Corvallis, Oregon. Here's one in Carlsbad, New Mexico, studying volatile organic compounds. (31k-39k - wooo!)


  1. University of Floria, chemistry department is pathetic. They interviewed 7 candidates last year and did not take anybody.

    1. They picked up an associate professor rather than hire a fresh one last year.

    2. I thought that University of Florida looked familiar. I applied last year when I hardly had any papers from the postdoc. By the time I had the glamour magz pubz out, the hiring season was over and I got a rejection. I don't know if it's legit to apply again to the same place, maybe I can get another paper to pad the CV so they know I've got the skillz? Nah, I won't bother. I don't really want to live in North Florida anyways and I have a feeling its automatic rejection if you try again.

  2. They made someone an offer, though.
