First issue of the year! Nothing doin' for government positions. Not much either for industrial positions, but a fun position doing quality control in Shanghai at a agricultural facility. Good luck with that! (Actually, this is what the PRC needs, all snark aside.) Small school of the week is Georgia Perimeter College (student population 21,473, SA-LUTE!), which is looking for a chemistry lab supervisor. Academica Sinica went crazy with the ads this week, with 2 faculty postings and 1 for postdocs. Also, a nice article on page 27.

One of my mentors told me that the dead of winter was the beginning of 'the search season' -- while I believe him, I ain't seein' it so far. We'll see.
