Better: Exxon is looking for one fuel researcher, Gilead is looking for one research associate in process chemistry. There's a sales position and then there's...

Millenium?: I never quite know what to think of Millenium's ads in C&EN, especially considering how often they're posted in the pages of C&EN and their online reputation about those ads. 

Like the Energizer Bunny: Tenure-track positions continue to be strong, at all levels. A remarkable run, but I should be comparing last year with this year...

Small college of the week: Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, NY, student population: 2,550, SA-LUTE!) is looking for a visiting assistant professor in biochemistry. "Enthusiasm for teaching and working with undergraduate students in a liberal arts setting is essential." (Too obvious?) On your downtime, you could attend the National College Comedy Festival - hilarious!

  1. While hobknobbing, I met an assistant Prof from Skidmore. He was looking for another job. According to him, when he was recruited, they were not so straightforward about the opportunities for developing an independent research program. It's a teaching mill.
