One (still) is the loneliest number: Other than a "director of regulatory affairs" position (and what bench chemist wouldn't want to be one of those?!?), there's nothing here. 


Faculty, too: The faculty positions have really petered out. Well, there's gotta be a slow season sometime.

Small college of the week:  Florida A&M University (Tallahassee, FL, student population: 11,800, SA-LUTE!) is looking for a computation medicinal chemistry postdoc.  "Preference will be given to candidates with an earned Ph.D. in Computational/Medicinal Chemistry with experience in molecular modeling, particularly the area of comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA)." Well, there you are. Sounds like fun, and you get to watch a great marching band.
