    The USDA does the same thing with their research associate positions. PhD with fewer than 5 years experience. So in my case if you got a PhD in 2006 at 26 years old, in 2012 you can go fuck yourself and be unemployed at 32 :p

      Just to clarify, I should have said “continue to be unemployed”, meaning be ineligible to apply for positions they are listing.
