Didn't Princeton post this position last year?  I seem to remember
looking at the criteria when we were updating our campus position
descriptions.

A heads up amongst the RIM community that we have a pending position in
sunny southern California that will be published soon.  I hope to share
the opportunity by the 22nd.  Just a note to whet the interest of those
trying to stay warm in other parts of the country!
