Ivory Filter Flask: 12/15/15 edition

A few of the academic positions posted on C&EN Jobs this past week:

Hempstead, NY: It is interesting to see the trend away from larger universities to smaller schools. Hofstra posted an inorganic/physical position and an organic position.

That said...: The University of Maine (Orono*, ME) is looking for an assistant professor of organic chemistry.

Johnson City, TN: Posting from the Quillen College of Medicine at East Tennessee State University for a synthetic carbohydrate chemistry postdoc. I once heard a rumor that it is closer to Canada from Johnson City than it is to Memphis.

Anaheim, CA: Chemistry instructor position at Fullerton College in the North Orange County Community College District.

Oberlin, OH: Oberlin College looking for a visiting assistant professor of bioorganic chemistry.

  1. Re: Johnson City, TN: apparently not by road, but as the crow flies

  2. Several of the teaching-intensive colleges posted here and on the CB site state in their adverts that official transcripts are needed to apply in the first place. My reaction is halfway between surprise and annoyance. Especially since one of them stated that a doctorate wasn't necessary, since they would consider filling the position at the "instructor" level.
