A Poetic Interpretation of my Plan to Apply for Christian Chemistry College Teaching Jobs on the Appalachian Trail

John Muir Project: A Path to the End of Suffering Lies in Learning how to Consciously Reduce my Heart Rate Rapidly through Meditation and Prayer.

John Muir Project: Learning Zen, Day One.

#‎DrWKayaErbilChristianChemistry‬  I am starting to apply for chemistry teaching positions at American Christian colleges. Please pray for me.

A Radio Interview at Princeton University Radio (WPRB 103.3FM Broadcast) with Akiva David.

#‎JohnMuirProject‬ I am going to hike to Princeton this fall and apply for chemistry jobs on the Appalachian trail.

#‎JohnMuirProject‬ AT job hunt. Write good resume, cover letter, and teaching statement in August. Hike and apply on the trail from September.

#‎JohnMuirProject‬ AT job hunt.  I need time to practice Zazen and pray freely away from civilization while I apply for chemistry jobs.

#‎ATjobhunt‬ I can use a solar iPhone charger, my iPhone 5, and an ultralight bluetooth keyboard to blog and apply for jobs on the AT.

#‎JohnMuirProject‬ ‪#‎ATjobhunt‬ I would rather not apply for jobs while hiking, but I would rather hike while I apply for jobs.

#‎ATjobhunt‬ The singular goal for my job hunt it to find a balance between remoteness and connectivity on a mountain for days at a time.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
