No comment: Insert whining about relative lack of industry jobs in C&EN here. Shanghai Medicilon is still looking for a VP of MedChem (wait, that's actually someone with "7+ years medi chem industry experience". If you're a VP candidate who likes Shanghai (who wouldn't -- really, I've heard it's great) and can stand typos, put in your CV! 

Wanted: secret agent polymer chemist: Something called the "National Institute of Aerospace " is looking for a M.S. or Ph.D. polymer chemist to work on something secret -- you need a "secret security clearance". You also need to be able to do Schlenk chemistry and use a glovebox. Good luck, Dr. 007. 

Wanted: copy editor: Someone at Los Angeles Sothwest [sic] Community College is looking to hire a chemistry instructor -- smart to use C&E News! They are also looking for an anthropology instructor, a computer science IT instructor, an English instructor, a learning disability specialist, a music instructor (I am not kidding - CJ) and two nursing instructors. Not smart! 

Small college (not so) of the week: The University of Auckland in New Zealand (student population: 47,510 -- SA-LUTE!) is looking for a lecturer in biophysical or biological chemistry. Even though they're not particularly small, I couldn't resist, especially with their Maori name (Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau) in the logo. It's worth noting that a lecturer position, elsewhere in the Anglosphere, is more like an assistant professorship in the US.
