Just a note to let you know that SciWeb, a new web site at: will list meeting announcements on the site to the
Life Science community - announcements go up for free. We also list post
doc and technician openings for free and faculty positions for
$50/posting. We keep the ad up for two months unless requested

If you are interested, just write to: eddyjake at and send the 
text of the post and the contact information. We will get it up within a
day for you.

SciWeb is a central repository of information and communication services
to the life science industry. SciWeb offers free access to useful
databases, employment listings, web directories, public discussion
groups and data services aiding the life sciences, the pharmaceutical,
medical diagnostics and the biotechnology industries. SciWeb provides
services for the design of web sites for interested groups and offers
low cost computer hosting facilities for secure web sites.
