Still waiting: for a rising trend in industrial jobs... It's up a little, though. Thanks to ExxonMobil for this week's panel ad -- they're looking for a computational chemist.

Still strong: Not as many as last week, but the fall hiring season for academic faculty continues apace. I think we're slowing, but it's nice to see positions being posted. 

Small college of the week: Washburn University (Topeka, KS, student population: 7,300 - SA-LUTE!) is looking for a tenure-track assistant professor of analytical chemistry. You know, everyone says that Kansas is flat, but I've found it pretty. Now Nebraska -- that's flat.
