Ivory Filter Flask: 1/20/15 edition
A few of the academic positions posted this past week on C&EN Jobs:
Goodbye, assistant professorships: We seem to be transitioning into "visiting assistant professorship" season.
Sherman, TX: Austin College looking for a visiting assistant professor for fall 2015 to teach general chemistry.
Gettysburg, PA: Gettysburg College looking for two VAPs in biochemistry and physical chemistry.
Qatar: I can't tell what this "teaching specialist - organic chemist" position in Qatar is about, but hey, maybe you want to do it?
(Should we think of taking teaching positions in wealthy Gulf oil states like an organic chemist going to work in Shanghai at WuXi, or should we think of it like college kids going to Alaska for a season of crab fishing?)
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: The Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation is looking for a M.D./Ph.D. director of radiopharmaceutical chemistry -- looks lucrative: $125,000-$175,000. (CAN)
Wellesley, MA: Wellesley College looking for a M.S./Ph.D. instrumentation specialist.
