Don't forget to send jobs to @JoBrodie and not @ScicommJobs as otherwise I'm unlikely to see them (the Sci account is just an automated feed from the blog and is not monitored). I do occasionally remember to take a look at the @mentions but it might be too late by then…!

I have to say I'm quite tempted by this one-day-a-week job myself. I like plants and approve of fighting their pathogens 🙂
