C'mon already: Good gracious, this is rough for the chemist. One med chem job in Shanghai -- nice! 

Kelly Scientific and ACS are lame!: No, I'm not counting the stupid ad from ACS and Kelly Scientific Resources. It leads to a stupid page where they say: Hey, nicetameetcha and check out our regular page! "Now, the world’s largest scientific society has partnered with the world’s leading authority on scientific careers to bring you more options." Snort. The freakin' world's largest scientific society hasn't even manage to extort any perks out of silly Kelly Scientific. Yeah, I'll get right on that weekend lab tech job. (no offense to all the hard-workin' weekend lab techs out there...)

Oslo, anyone?: The University of Oslo has a lovely half-page ad this week for a postdoc in nuclear chemistry. Interested, Mitch ?

Small college of the week: South Dakota State University (Brookings, SD, student population: 11,995 -- SA-LUTE!) is looking for an organic visiting professor. Sounds fun to me! Oh, wait, what's that you say? The average temperature in January is around 10°F? Um, well... No, I don't have any other offers -- South Dakota it is!
