Ivory Filter Flask: 12/10/13 edition

Between December 3 and December 9, there were 24 academic positions posted on the C&EN Jobs website. The numbers:

Postdocs: 2
Tenure-track: 13
Temporary faculty: 4
Lecturers: 5
Staff: 0
US/non-US: 22/2

Huh: I'm surprised that positions for tenure-track positions are still being posted.

Raleigh, NC: I confess I wasn't aware of a College of Textiles, but they're hiring an assistant professor of analytical chemistry for it.

Irvine, CA: Chapman University is setting up a School of Pharmacy; looks like they're looking for assistant professors to staff it. Pharmacy degrees desired, among others.

Ulsan Metropolitan City, South Korea: This sounds very futuristic (emphasis mine):
The Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) and the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) are proud to announce the establishment of “The Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials” (CMCM) in Ulsan, South Korea. A primary objective of the Center is to design and develop the next generation carbon materials, and a prominent chemist is needed to lead synthetic and characterization efforts. 
Multidimensional carbon! A clever scifi writer could come up with a good story around that.

Charlottesville, VA: An astrochemistry research scientist position is being offered at the University of Virginia. It sounds complicated, for sure. (Note that it requires an astrochemistry postdoc.) Another one of these formal-ads-that-aren't-really-ads? Probably.

  1. FYI, there were tenure track postings coming out in April of last year. For start in the fall. Typically non-research intensive schools, but they go on pretty late.
