Hey everyone...I've added some info on positions in Earth Science, Geology, Environmental Science, and Civil and Environmental Engineering. Some are one's I've applied to and some are second hand from friends...So, don't be shy about adding more and updating because I might not hear more about many of these. Good luck with your searches!

Maybe we can get an idea of how many people use/edit this site
Users/Editors: 27

Lurkers: 2

Many thanks to whoever alphabetized the listings. You rock.

Feel free to add post-docs and research searches to the list too.


Search canceled (?)

Virginia Tech (Energy, Envi't, Earth Systems). Letter stated that although five highly-qualified candidates were discovered, that was not enough to have a " robust, independent competition." Bizarre.

University of Alaska at Anchorage- this is a mystery, but we think the search failed for unknown reasons.
