Hi all,

I came across this interesting blog post on nature jobs that I thought might be interesting for some of you:

In brief, it discusses the often untapped potential of your PhD dissertation committee, or PhD jury as it is sometimes called. While it mentions that this is mostly limited to the US, similar structures exist within other countries too.

It is also something that I can support, as I have my current post-doc position thanks to one of my PhD committee members.
