Four new workstations installed in the Past Environmental Change microscope lab
Excitement in February saw the arrival of a
new research grant within the PCRG, to look at pollen and spore chemistry from Lake Bosumtwi ( ), and (just in time) the expansion of benches in the microscope lab which will ensure that the new people will have spaces to sit in! In addition, we had a paper published with watch this space for new post-doc and PhD studentship positions long time friends and collaborators at the University of Leeds; Roucoux et al. (2013).
Despite the disruption of the lab refit Hayley and Frazer have been cracking on with pollen and chironomid analysis. Encarni and Frazer returned from
field work in Ecuador and half the samples have so far made it back to The Open University; we now wait with anticipation for customs to release the other box!
Four shiny new workstations from the other side – woo
Meanwhile I have been working on exam questions for the
Geological Record of Environmental Change module (S369), interviewing prospective PhD candidates for the October 2013 start projects and have been on a training course to learn about the Vitae support for research student training.
