  1. I feel bad for the applicants, the students, but also the instrumentation!

    Hiring someone for one year to take on lab courses is the surest way to end up purchasing new lab equipment next year.

    1. Maybe that is the goal, gotta increase tuition and lab fees for new instruments.

    2. The same thing happens in industry labs when the only person who knew an instrument needed some kind of routine maintenance, or even how to operate the damn thing, suddenly gets laid off or quits.
