New, Free Job Board Launched by Protocol-Online

Quoted from the announcement in BioForum's website...
A sister site to Protocol-Online has just been launched at Bio-Job.ORG. We know that most job advertisements are not free, which is a big hassle to employers and PIs, as well as to job seekers. We believe that the scientific community should have access to free job listing and thus launched this new site. Besides offering free job listing, the site also allow job seekers to create their profiles and upload their CVs.

We would like to ask our members to spread the news and let your employer or PI know that free job listing is available at bio-job.org. When more and more people become aware of this site, there will be no need to pay to advertise a postdoc position.

A career discussion forum, as part of the bio-job.ORG site, has also been launched. Career related discussion in BioForum will be redirected to the new forum.
