This fall, I applied for what seemed like the perfect postdoc, but two months later got a letter informing me that the advisor had turned down the entire pool of applicants. Which stings: it's one thing to be beaten out by qualified people with known good qualities, but quite another to be beaten by absolutely no one.

Now the advisor has sent the notice of the postdoc twice to the professional society mailing list, and the second time urged people to send their students to come talk to her about her fantastic postdoc at an upcoming conference.
