One is the loneliest number: One industrial ad, from Varian. Looks like they're looking for an sales-type in analytical. 

Your stimulus dollars at work: If you were the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, why in the world would you advertise in C&EN for electrical engineers?

Academic positions: Still lots of 'em. Probably on the down slope for this academic year. 

Small college of the week: Westminster College (New Wilmington, PA, student population: 1,650 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for a tenure-track professor in biochemistry. If you wish to be "within one hour of both Pittsburgh and Cleveland" (emphasis from the ad), this may be for you. Hope you like AFC North football.
