Don't call it a comeback: Lo and behold, a few industry ads. Just a handful, including...

What's your title again?: Novartis is looking for a "Scientific Education Manager" for both Cambridge and Basel. Your job, should you choose to accept it, would be to "catalyze a collaborative culture of learning and training that fosters scientific innovation and interdisciplinary research... [and] to evaluate and develop scientific learning opportunities for NIBR employees at all levels." Fascinating. While I was initially confused by it, it actually sounds like a cool position. Good luck out there. 

Still going strong: Lots of universities hiring, including R1 schools. Good luck to the ~200 or so postdocs who actually have a shot at these positions. 

Small college of the week: Presbyterian College (Clinton, SC, student population 1300, SA-LUTE!) is looking for a tenure-track professor in biochemistry. If you wish to teach at a school that has the largest bronze statue of a Scotsman in the world, this position may be for you!
