Anyone know what's going on at Hamilton College? They advertised a tenure-track Neuroscience position but just posted a one-year Neuroscience adjunct job. Seems odd that a small college would need two people in that field. My guesses:
1) Hamilton really DOES need two neuroscience people—one permanent, and one to replace someone who's going on sabbatical;
2) The funding is falling through for the tenure-track position, and they're trying to get an adjunct as a stopgap measure;
3) The person they've hired/are going to hire has effectively "deferred" for a year, and they're looking to fill the gap.
