    Not that I’m in any position, I don’t think, to be applying for these positions any time soon, but to have the listings here is really wonderful. A great resource. I hope that when I finish my PhD, and *am* ready to start looking for such positions, that maybe your listings will still be going 🙂

      Glad to hear you find these posts useful! We normally don’t get feedback on our job postings, so sometimes I wonder if posting so many is kind of spammy. 😉 But sometimes it’s hard to find where these things are up, so I figured it was always worth putting up. Hopefully I won’t get too busy and start slacking off on this kind of stuff once my own PhD starts to swallow me whole… 😛
