I am now applying for postdoc positions and faculty positions at teaching colleges, all through mathjobs. I have a location constraint, and so am applying to universities all within a single metropolitan area. There are many colleges and universities in this area, but not all of them have positions listed on mathjobs.org.
If a college has not listed a position, does this mean that they will not hire under any circumstances, or might they be able to hire if given the right opportunity? i.e. is it worth contacting department chairs at these colleges and inquiring? I am graduating from a top school and might perhaps be a "catch" for some of the smaller teaching colleges.
