Ivory Filter Flask: 7/14/15 edition

A few of the academically-related positions at C&EN Jobs:

Fall 2016 search begins: Creighton University (Omaha, NE) is looking for an assistant professor of analytical chemistry.

Bellingham, WA: This instrument specialist position at Western Washington University requires only a B.S. in chemistry; that said, it sounds like an awful lot of work for $38,748.

Middlebury, VT: Middlebury College looking for a laboratory instructor (M.S./Ph.D.) for January 2016.

Newark, DE: The University of Delaware is looking for a chemical hygiene officer. B.S., 4 years of experience desired.

Last minute lecturer: UT-San Antonio is looking for a visiting assistant professor; biological mass spectrometry experience desired. Paying 60-70k - not bad! 


  1. Bellingham's a pretty nice area, and you're not far away from Vancouver or Victoria. I can't speak on the college environment there. The ad doesn't mention the kitchen sink but I'll bet it's in there somewhere.

    Middlebury is also very nice - it's a small college town, hours away from just about "everything." Mostly Middlebury is known for its foreign language schools (departments) which are run in the summer - these are the best in the nation. It might get to be a bit claustrophobic in winter, esp. if you're used to large cities.

    1. Ah, yes, this is a very cute video about their language schools: https://youtu.be/woL38FrlRHo
