If you ever want to see what other jobs descriptions I've captured from an organisation (remember @ScicommJobs has been running since October 2009) then you can use mildly advanced Googling to do so. Search for site:scicommjobs.posterous.com keyword (obviously 'keyword' would be Wellcome Trust, or "Wellcome Trust" in this case) and see what's there. This is much better than using the search option on Posterous itself.Wellcome Trust
