Chemistry Bumper Cars, 2014-2015

ChemBark's fantastic 2012-2013 roundup .
For earlier faculty moves, click here.

'Tis the season for chemistry faculty to pack up their U-Hauls, distribute plane tickets to the post-docs, then relocate their labs halfway across the country. 2014's shaping up to be not much different than previous cycles.

For this year's moves, I'm adopting the ChemBark format, picking up roughly where he left off.

    can corroborate the Ritter move. he's not moving for a year though.

    also saghatelian to Salk's been a done deal for a while. he'll be moving this year.

    2. I have heard that the Ritter move is a very likely possibility, but not 100% and it won't happen until summer 2015.

    2. I wonder if Andy will be happy at any places. First at University of Colorado then Yale for few years now to Broad Institute.

    3. I was getting my PhD when he was at Colorado. Seemed pretty happy there and he bike-raced too. After his sabbatical at Brod he said it was his dream job. Why not leave Yale?

  25. Small correction: Neil Tomson is the correct spelling.

  27. I could elaborate the Koehler case more. Koehler's former position in Broad is not tenure-track. She is now a tenure-track assistant professor at MIT and only keeps an affiliated position in Broad. Her lab space moved to the MIT side earlier this year.

  28. Andy McNally is going to Colorado state. Also Martin McCullagh from Voth's group at Chiacgo is also going to Colorado State.

    1. Anon - What I mean by "confirm" is to see Colorado State put out a news blurb confirming both hires. Perhaps those readers in the know could make that request to their webmaster? : )
