Chemistry Bumper Cars, 2015-2016

In the age of  Google and Glassdoor, hiring has become a year-round activity. Postdocs and grads alike should keep their ears to the wall, since nowadays any group meeting could list "Relocation" on the agenda...

From June 2014 - December 2014, comments, search engines, rumours, and tweets noted 50 faculty moves and 119 new faculty starts for academic chemists. I've started another page simply because the flow hasn't stopped; perhaps I should start up a database for next year?

    1. What's so dramatic about that? As far as I can tell, the ~top 5 schools (say, Harvard, Caltech, MIT, Berkeley, Stanford. Substitute as you see fit) interview widely almost every year, but only make an offer when they are really blown away.

    3. The only reason I'd guess is that he had overlap with John Wood when they both worked for Schreiber way back in the day. I'd guess John came to Baylor to take advantage of CPRIT funding, but Romo had access to CPRIT funding (ideally) at TA&M because it's in Texas. It's a step down that's for sure
