These awards are for young scientists (including students) to attend the ESEB meeting in Tubingen in August 2011 (www.eseb2011.de).
The award will cover:
1. Support toward travel and living expenses.
2. ESEB Registration fees (based on early member registration fees).
Eligibility: Applications can be submitted by young scientists at various stages of their professional career that do not yet have a permanent position (e.g., Master and PhD students, postdocs).
Applicants must be ESEB members (for becoming a member of ESEB, see http://www.eseb.org/). Proposals can be submitted several times, but winners are not eligible for a second award for a period of 5 years. They must submit an oral communication or a poster to be eligible for the award.
How to apply: send you application by email to the ESEB Travel Award Committee, c/o Dr. Martijn Egas <C.J.M.Egas@uva.nl>. The application should be no more than 2 pages long and include: name of the applicant; budget, including sources of additional support; an explanation of how attendance to the meeting will further their professional goals; and a CV (preferably as a single PDF-file). A support letter from the applicant advisor/mentor is also required. Support letters should be sent to the same email address (C.J.M.Egas@uva.nl) by the applicant’s mentor or senior colleague.
Deadline: 11 February 2011 24:00 GMT.

Hi all- just to remind you all that we are having a freezer clearout (we are drastically running out of space). At the moment we are doing a ‘stocktake’ of the -20 room (I now have a 90% completed list). Do you have anything that can defo. be thrown out?
-80’s these will be defrosted (stuff taken to -20 overnight). Do you have anything to throw? (or stuff that cannot go up to -20 temp.?). Please let me know.
Coldroom? -20 freezers? anything to throw out? PCR products?
Accommodation needed from Jan 23rd for Lyndsey Holland (for about 1 month? and then maybe a little more time) Please email Lyndsey directly on email@example.com
…just a quick note to warn you Ammonium Acetate- 96-well plate-extraction people that you need to ensure that your total ethanol should be at or above 64% to allow DNA to precipitate fully (one adaptation of the method has the ethanol at 50% which doesn’t work as well!). Our normal tube method uses 2x volume ethanol (66% final).
Apologies to those who may have already received this message via Sue. We’d love a few more bods to get involved 😉
Hi as you know the Dept. is taking part in Green Impact again this year (see http://sheffield.greenimpact.org.uk/ for more details).
We now have an action plan to achieve at least the Silver Award for this

would like to be actively involved in Green Impact and become part of
the GI Team 2010/11 then please contact Andy (A.firstname.lastname@example.org)
or Anna (A.Santure@sheffield.ac.uk) (ideally in the next few days) and
we’ll get back to you with further details.
Andy and Anna 🙂
