Postdoctoral Position! Fun! Excitement! ...and science...

Sue and the flow community:

Theoretically, (with some exceptions of course) according to your
description, all companies who have products and services to offer would
qualify to post advertisements for their products and services as one could
say that the flow community as well as the company would benefit. There are
many companies that offer "hard to find" products and services that would
benefit this community but this would open the door for all vendors to then
advertise on the site, and I for one, do not want that!  There should not be
special privileges given to one company over the other, so it should be all
or none. I vote for none. I have suggested before that if this is something
that others would like to have that it should be a separate list and then
those that choose to monitor the commercial list could do so.

My 2 cents-

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Anyone seeking positions in flow,  Please send a current CV and your
position desires to Sue DeMaggio at FloCyte at - NO CHARGE to
candidates - and I might be able to help you find a position you'll love.

The list should also be aware that Educational opportunities are not allowed
to be advertised unless they come from certain not for profit entities, even
educational opportunities which offer Continuing Education credits in flow
cytometry, necessary for clinical flow personnel holding a QCym from ASCP -
a HARD thing to find. ....  Even if ISAC and CCS members receive a discount
when they sign up .....   
These are for the benefit of the flow community as well - 
If you think they should be allowed to post all flow courses offered, say
so!   Currently they can not even be posted at the ISAC site - and are not
sited on the Purdue site either....   you can only find them at  <> 

DISCLAIMER.... My company would benefit from such announcements - but the
flow community would benefit as well.  And don't we all benefit from flow?
How many of you work FREE??  anyone here NOT profit from working in this
technology???  Just wondering.....

I'm not sure that's such a good thing.	Okay, force job seekers to look
at a bulletin board.  However, what of those who might like to know of
these positions via the Flow mailing list and don't regularly go out of
their way to connect to and check a separate forum?  I'm speaking of
those who may see a job posting on the Flow mailing list and know
someone who is right for that job.  It strikes me that the separate
forum dilutes the target audience and hence is not such a good deal for
the advertisers. (?zers?)

Very good point!

One of the great advantages of this list is the broad spectrum of topics
covered. We probably all find every day some messages on the list, which are
not directly related to our field of interest. But WE decide for ourselves,
if we want to read them for general interest or to skip them.
I don't like the idea, of someone else deciding for me what I am supposed to
read on this list or not.

And job postings are also useful for those, who are not actually looking for
a job, but want to be aware of what is going on in the field beyond pure
scientific exchange.

You also would (hopefully) not stop posting local meeting announcements,
although they concern only a very small fraction of the list-members or
create specific sub-lists: Clinical, Research, Image, Flow.....

I would be glad, if you gave it a second thought.

Best regards
