Qu est les boulot dans l'industrie?: Dude -- where are the freakin' industry jobs? There is one senior scientist position position at Honeywell in Virginia, one experienced physical chemist job in Nampa, Idaho (outside of Boise -- hope you like potatoes, dude) and the freakin' executive director position at IUPAC. Yeah, that's attainable -- maybe when you're tired of running ACS or something. 

The Efficiency in Advertising Award goes to: Gonzaga University, which advertised a tenure-track HHMI-funded assistant professorship in biochemistry with a mere 7.3 square centimeters and about 23 words. Way to save on the ad budget there, guys. The US government could learn something from you. 

Love Minnesota? Here's your chance: Four visiting professor-type positions in small-town Minnesota (up to three at St. Olaf's College and one at Gustavus Adolphus College) are up for grabs this year. Snow's fun. 

Small college of the week: Christian Brothers University in Memphis, TN (student population 1779, SA-LUTE!) is looking for two (count 'em, TWO) full-time tenure-track assistant professor positions in analytical, inorganic, engineering and/or forensic chemistry. Barbecue and Beale Street -- could be worse things in this world.
