A colleague emailed me the following question
“A good friend of mine is looking for a position as a research fellow or instructor in microbiology with an emphasis on teaching. While she’s exploring options herself I figured it couldn’t hurt asking; I usually know who is hiring in [my area of expertise] but this is way outside my usual networks, and from what I’ve been learning positions with an emphasis on teaching are surprisingly rare. Any pointers to departments or groups that might be hiring would be highly appreciated (as are tips on how to find such a position).”
And alas I did not have a good answer. So, with this person’s permission I am reaching out to the blogosphere to see if anyone has suggestions for good places/sources of information about job openings in teaching and/or research fellow positions in microbiology.
