There is that time of the year when my e-mail starts getting flooded with questions about postdoc positions. Today marks the official beginning of postdoc 2009 season (marked by the first e-mail of the season).
At UCSB we get hundreds of applications for postdoc positions in high energy theory every year.
Postdoc hunting season can keep on going until sometime between February and April depending on your location.
I remember when I was a kid, there were always these funny cartoons with Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd about hunting season being open. Fortunately, it seems that many of these cherished images from my childhood are considered to be in the public domain nowadays.
