Not a good week to be looking for an industry job: De nada.

But if you're looking for a faculty position: There's 42 new positions posted this week, including the University of Miyazaki's ten assistant professor positions. Good Lord, that's a lot of professorships. Best of luck, folks. (That Wikipedia entry explains it -- they've been a chartered university for 5 years. Nothing like getting in on the ground floor!)

Small college of the week: The University of Southern Maine (Portland, ME, student population: 10,974 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for a tenure-track assistant professor in biochemistry. Like lobster? This position might be for you!
