An opportunity that might appeal to appropriately qualified readers to try and steer NIAID towards more productive areas of research than circumcision-as-an-AIDS-preventative.

If anyone should happen to be successful in landing a job or contract they first saw on these forums, it would be greatly appreciated if they could donate a certain percentage of net income (maybe 5%-10%) to an anti-circumcision organisation/s in the U.S. (or if you're not confident in donating the money, invest a similar amount in your own anti-circumcision activities).
