Moving, Jobs, and Such

Post by UncleBob » Thu Sep 11, 2014 8:39 am

Nancy and I are looking for jobs this year. That means we will most likely be moving this summer. Generally, an academic job search takes months and it is a real pain in the tuckas. Please remember us in prayer this year.

Here are the leading candidates so far (no particular order):

Oregon State
Iowa State
Michigan Tech
Auburn
Texas A&M
Kansas State
Michigan
Northern Arizona University

Thank you.

Praying. Job search and moving. Two difficult things!

I started to make some comment about Silo Tech (K-State) but I remembered that would put him just a short distance out of our way to either Wichita to visit the in-laws or Western Kansas to visit the wheat fields and oil wells... :-)

Anyplace else would be a great loss to our state.

If you don't have allergies yet, you will if this is your destination. Summers here in the PacNW are better than anywhere else. Early Spring in the Willamette Valley is terrible for allergy sufferers.

If you do move here, assuming you move to Corvallis, I'll be ~30 minutes away from raiding your mead.

Praying!

Start what? It's customary to announce your presence. Then they may reply.
