Ivory Filter Flask: 6/3/14 edition

A few academic positions from C&EN Jobs over the past week (since May 29 through June 2): 

Ottawa, Canada: The University of Ottawa is hiring up to 5 faculty in chemical biology at the assistant professor level (higher ranks considered.) 

Collegeville, MN: The College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University is hiring a one year chemistry instructor to start in August 2014. When is mosquito season up there, anyway? 

Atlanta, GA: Georgia Tech is hiring an assistant professor in chemistry, with a focus towards renewable feedstocks: 
Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, functional biomaterials, catalysis, energy harvesting and storage, efficient syntheses and processes, and plant bioengineering and synthetic biology. Opportunities for significant interaction with and support from the Institute for Paper Science and Technology at Georgia Tech (ipst.gatech.edu) will be available. 
Sounds interesting.

Albuquerque, NM: The University of New Mexico is searching for a manager for its nanofabrication facility. Sounds fancy, you could have some green chile stew along the way.

Winston-Salem, NC: Wake Forest University is hiring a "Teacher-Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow"* to teach and collaborate in mass spectrometry research. I find this to be an interesting sentence:
This position will provide excellent professional development opportunities for talented candidates interested in pursuing a career in instrumentation management.
I'd like to know how true that is. (I suspect that it is actually true, but at the same time, I am a bit wary. Readers?)

*I'm sad there's not a 'deputy' or an 'associate' in that title.

  1. Time to brush up on my french.

    The University of Ottawa is proud of its 160-year tradition of bilingualism. At the time of tenure, professors are expected to have the ability to function in a bilingual setting.
