With apologies for cross-posting, I send you the following notice that
we are hiring a department chair. Our program is small but we are
strong, with faculty who get along and maintain high research
productivity, in an area with an incredibly low cost of living. We have
canoeing, camping, and hunting right here, and St Louis is only 100
miles away. We are eager to bring in a new leader and move our
department in a positive direction. Please circulate, and if I can
answer any questions, I will be happy to.
