Ivory Filter Flask: 6/23/16 edition

A few of the academically-oriented positions posted on C&EN Jobs:

San Francisco, CA: UCSF is looking for a tenure-track nuclear chemistry (PET-related) position.

Auburn, AL: Auburn, looking for a research assistant professor in quantum chemistry.

Philadelphia, PA: Temple University is looking for a non-tenure track organic chemistry laboratory coordinator.

Madison, WI: A biomedical engineering group is looking for two physical chemists to be postdoctoral fellows. Looks like it's going to be paying overtime, since the position is offering 43-45k.

Last Minute Lecturer: Whitworth University (Spokane, WA) is looking for a lecturer in chemistry. Start date: August 1, 2016. M.S./ABD acceptable. I hear Spokane is nice; arid climate?

Last Minute Lecturer #2: Wofford College (Spartanburg, SC) is searching for a one-year contract faculty position to teach general chemistry, to begin September 2016.

Never too early for next year: The Claremont Colleges (the "Keck Science Department") is looking for a tenure-track professor of bioanalytical chemistry to begin in June 2017. 


  1. A note for the "skills" needed for the job in Spokane:

    A personal commitment to the Christian faith and to the integration of faith and learning.
    A commitment to the educational mission of Whitworth as a Christian liberal arts university affiliated with the Presbyterian church.

    1. There are some very nutty places out there, a certain institution in South Carolina asks on their application form how the applicant has been saved. But Whitworth is actually tame, the Presbyterian Church is a mainline denomination.

  2. UCSF: "o this end, we are assembling a cadre of young, independent investigators ...
    The successful candidate will possess a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in Chemistry or related field with 7 minimum years of experience in medicinal or nuclear chemistry. S/he must have a minimum of 3 successful grant applications to NIH. ...Both junior-level and established scientists are encouraged to apply. "

    That sounds like a lot of requirements for a "young" "junior" scientist.
