Peter Westenskow from the Friedlander Laboratory at Scripps sends this rather excellent neovascular Santa tuft for everyone to enjoy for Christmas and the New Year. Thanks Peter!
Peter was a star graduate student here at the Moran Eye Center in Sabine Fuhrmann’s laboratory and has done amazing science in his post-doc at Scripps. He’s decided to start looking for his first faculty position, so if you have any spots, give him a shout.
These days it seems there are few jobs available in the ranks of professors in bioscience, so this one is notable not only for the position, but also for the group that this is with. The University of Louisville is currently looking for an Assistant/Associate Professor in the tenure track in Visual Neuroscience, Department of Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology.
