Nothing could be worse. our context than what just happened.

A new faculty that we hired told us TODAY, the week before classes begin, that (s)he would not be joining us. Their entire teaching load must now instantly be redistributed and we must scramble for adjuncts. Since we don't live in a booming metropolis swimming with hungry recent science Ph.D.s, we are really stuck.

Anybody wanna teach Chemistry in a cute college town? Send a message.

  1. OH DEAR. You have all my sympathies. That is... pretty much the worst. I mean, if someone drops dead or something (which happened while I was in grad school) at least it's an unpreventable disaster, but that's just unprofessional and/or highly unfortunate. I doubt your tiny town is anywhere near my tiny town so... good luck.
