Hi all! Juan and my picnic sadly looks like it will be rained out – so we will try the pub and then can make plans for dinner from there (either eating there or going elsewhere).
We will head to Doctors Orders (the old West End) after work (5-5.30ish).
See you all soon!

The department will be having a digital photo board installed in the near future. Please pop along and have your photo taken by the Faculty photographer, Ron Adams, in the Common Room at the following times:
Tuesday 28th July 11:00-12:00
or last chance =
Thursday 30th July 11:00-12:00
We will leave a list of names in the Common Room and it will be most helpful if you could tick your name off when you have had your photograph taken or add it if missing, and if you are a Facility visitor please put “NBAF visitor” after your name.
Hi all! Juan and I will both be in Sheffield early next week and we thought it would be awesome to catch up with everyone for a picnic after work on Tuesday 28th (thanks Jess for the outdoor idea!).
We really hope you can all make it (also, if someone could please pre-order some sunshine that would be much appreciated)!

I’ve got spare (unused) broad beans from my aphid sampling. I don’t need them any longer and thus wonder if anybody would like to take them/some for their gardening rather that I throw them away.
They are of course aphid free (well for the moment, as long as they are not in a real garden) and are of the ‘Sutton’ dwarf variety.
Please let me know by Thursday if you want some as I’ll throw them away on Friday (email@example.com).
Interested in helping this project? Or maybe thinking about crowdfunding your own research? www.experiment.com/tequilabats
due to some leftover funding being available at our University, I have an opening for a PhD position in my “group” (it’s just me for now), and a great project: to work on phylogeography and population structure of Apodemus flavicolis and sylvaticus (yellow-necked and wood mice) using high-throughput genotyping, in collaboration with Dr Karol Zub in the Mammal Research Institute in Bia?owie?a, Poland.
This is a fully-funded 3-year PhD project with extra money for research and is co-supervised by Dr Dougie Clarke and embedded in the Evolutionary Genetics Research Group here at Huddersfield. The funding is only available to EU students.
I would be very grateful if you could spread the news far and wide, as there is not much time left: deadline is July 10th.

Thanks a lot!
