  1. Unrelated to jobs, but I'm obligated to hate Florida Gulf Coast for destroying my bracket in March.

    1. Ha ha, I lurk nowadays. Have my nose against the grindstone lately, don't get to read/comment as much as I'd like.

  2. FGCU busted my bracket too, but man were they fun to watch! I'm not even mad.

    A side note (and probably more relevant to someone applying for the position): FGCU is a very young university, founded in 1991. I wonder how that might influence the current makeup of the faculty, and who they are trying to bring in. Also, a quick look at their wikipedia page shows several engineering programs, and FGCU's chemistry page shows that they are bundled as a department with mathematics. Perhaps these departments are largely focused on providing prereqs for the engineering student population?
