Hi folks- I am running a MolEcol course on Monday-Thursday (22nd-25th). I will be wanting to book the lab analysis computers on Wednesday (probably 1+ hour in the morning) and also on Thursday 9.45- 1pm. I will probably take 3 computers at one end so you will be able to use them (if you are very quiet!).
It would really help me if you could keep noise levels down near where the course is situated- it can be quite distracting for all when an excited gaggle descends nearby 😉
The School of Biological Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position as Lecturer in Behavioural Ecology. Applicants should have a strong record of research and teaching, with interests both in theoretical and applied aspects of behavioural ecology.
You will be expected to collaborate with other researchers within and outside the university as well as establishing your own research portfolio that attracts funding and graduate students. Any area of behavioural ecology will be considered and ideally it will relate to contemporary issues relevant to New Zealand. You will also be expected to teach in The School’s academic programme at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
The School of Biological Sciences currently employs 180 staff and supervises 120 PhD students. The School has modern laboratories and facilities (see SBS web site: http://www.sbs.auckland.ac.nz/), and the appointee will have ready access to a wide range of New Zealand’s unique biota and habitats. Applications for this position will close on the 31st July 2009.
Hi folks- the University is now recycling all ‘normal’ bin waste off site. So for the time being can you dispose of all cardboard in the ‘normal’ bin route rather than stacking it in the corner of the lab (the environmental benefits will be the same but less hassle for me!). In the next few months there will be some specific bins for cardboard and paper .
