JOBS: Research and Science

A little back round. There once was a Huge Linen Factory, called Cannon than Pillow Tex {sp?}, than something else after I moved here of which the name eludes me. Well they closed it down a few years ago with thousands of job loses not only within but the supporting small companies. It was one of the biggest, if not thee biggest, collective job loss numbers in North Carolina.

They finally tore down the old factory and rearranged the whole area it stood on and around it. In it's place they've now got three goodsize buildings and a parking garage, more is to come but because of the economic situation expansion has stopped. What they are putting in place of this once thriving factory is the North Carolina Research Campus {NCRC}

I'm posting this up, just this one time, as I realize there may be someone, or a few, who might have already lost their jobs or they fear that's coming, and so far I have No Qualifications for any positions they are seeking, so why not help others with the information.

This is the new position posted on the NC Research Campus Job Board
Metabolomics Lab Analyst, David H. Murdock Research Institute - PDF

Another place where you will find listings, though the numbers have gone down some, is here at the UNCCharlotte Employment Opportunities where you can place your resume than visit and apply for many varied positions as they list them.

Now just one new little bennie if you're hired to work at the Campus and happen to end up living in town. The city, they like to call it that though it's more in line as a village except in land size, has just passed a new ordinance: Kannapolis votes to allow hunting within city limits, so if you are a hunter as well and you happen to see a deer, I've rarely seen one and I'm not far from 'the village' but still in the city limits, you can get a number of dinners, main course, when you walk out your front or back door.



If you're secure in your jobs, own a home and aren't having mortgage problems, aren't much of a handyman or woman, live anywhere in this country, and still have a few bucks.


Look around and see if your home needs repairs, before they get out of hand, or the need might be more space, or just an update, especially as you're now probably thinking of staying settled longer than you might have before.


Call in a small contractor, some still haven't gone bust yet, and put them and their small crews and subs to work, giving you the satisfaction now that it won't cost you huge amounts later if you wait!!!
