Good luck to everyone again this year! I'm hoping to put very broad geography positions here, so please feel free to include physical and human geography and everything in between. I know some environmental science positions are posted on biology, but let's try to add them here, too, since environmental science and geography are often paired. Thanks!

You can add positions to this page or edit positions that are already posted clicking the above "Edit Page" link. The purpose of this page is for job applicants to anonymously inform others of the status of positions for which they have applied, interviewed or been offered.

This should be for positions that begin Fall 2011 (maybe Spring 2011 if those happen to come up).
