I applied for a job today which told me not to use PhD supervisors as referees. I haven't seen that before.

@twsh Yeah that sounds weird

I wonder what the rationale for that is

@bgcarlisle They don't say. They did also say that it would be good if the majority of my referees were from outside my institution. So maybe they want to hear from people who aren't my colleagues. But surely those people are best placed to recommend me (or not)?
