The focus of the new naturejobs.com, The Online Career Magazine for Scientists, will be to offer jobseekers from across the boundaries of discipline, geography and level a complete careers portal for scientific career news and information plus the most complete choices of the best jobs in science.
Those that love the long-standing features of the Naturejobs web site (such as the weekly must-read Prospects article, a section focusing on big science news and immediate career impacts) shouldnÂt worry. Most of the cornerstone sections will be incorporated into this new site.
ÂWe understand that career management is a hugely important issue and even more so among scientists. A huge commitment in the number years of formal education, thesis work, training time as a postdoc are spent getting oneÂs credentials in order,Â claimed Ben Crowe, the Publisher of Naturejobs. ÂA job for life is a relic of the 20th century. From recent focus groups and talking to students and researchers at our career fairs we determined that very little career management support is offered to scientists in the educational phases and little, if any, after.Â
NaturejobsÂ mission is to fill these gaps and demand answers to all the big career issues in science: Where is government money going? What new centers or initiatives are underway? After 2 years as a postdoc on one problem, what skills do you need to work in an emerging field?

More for advertisers and recruiters too.
Advertisers and Recruiters donÂt go unnoticed in the redesign. Come to our ÂAdvertisers and RecruitersÂ home page to learn more, whether it is advice on writing a good recruitment advertisement or interaction with other recruiters on our Forums.
Not that Naturejobs doesnÂt already deliver value to advertisers. It has by far the highest traffic (1.7 million page views month, and 445,000 unique users) of any science job board, and offers its groundbreaking Naturejobs Job Matching service that carefully matches jobs from Naturejobs to pages of relevant Nature content, essentially capturing 33 million page views per month. With the new Naturejobs we are certain more people will come for longer visits and become advocates of the site.
