Sorry for the cross-post... Please feel free to also use this special interest group for Bioconductor-ish postings. The only requirement is that the job description mentions the need/desire for R skills.

I'm now the admin for the new special interest group for R related job postings: https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-jobs Please send appropriate emails to this list. There are some simple rules for postings (e.g. no attachments etc).

Out of curiosity, I went to the Google employment web site (I'm not looking, but just curious). In perusing their job posts for statisticians, preference is given to those who use R and python. Other languages, S-Plus and something called SAS were listed as lower priorities. When I started using Python, I noted they have a portion of the web site with job postings. CRAN does not have something similar, but think it might be useful. I think R is becoming more widely used in industry and I wonder if helping it move along a bit, the maintainer of CRAN could create a section of the web site devoted to jobs where R is a requirement. Hence, we could have our own little "monster.com" kind of thing going on. Of the multitude of ways the gospel can be spread, this is small. But, I think every small step forward is good. Anyone think this is useful? Harold ---------------------------------------------------------------------- LEGAL NOTICE\ Unless expressly stated otherwise, this\ messa...{{dropped}}
