This week I'll be at the Santa Fe Institute for a working group that Dr. Lauren Shoemaker and I have organized, bringing together JSMF and SFI Postdoctoral fellows to talk about different theories for how & why species coexist. Read more about it in the SFI January newsletter, Parallax!
Last year I served as a scientific expert for a project to summarize and visualize the latest scientific research on the effect of ocean acidification in California coastal ecosystems. Now, the infographic is out! Check out the full infographic here from the California Ocean Science Trust and Ocean Protection Council (see also: summary of project).
This work was made possible by grants from: the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center Mamie Markham Research Award, the National Science Foundation, the US EPA, the Kingfisher Foundation, the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
Mark your calendars: I'll be hosting the @RealScientists Twitter feed for the week of January 14 - 20th! For those of you who don't know, Real Scientists is a rotational Twitter account, featuring a different scientist each week, reaching an audience of almost 60k followers. I'm quite excited to host - get ready to talk community ecology, fieldwork and theory, academic life, and, of course, rocky intertidal fieldwork!
"Not everyone has peered into clear rock pools at the hour of dawn, when the tide is at its lowest ebb, and recognized in the dusky shadowy forms of the young kelps, living creatures belonging to a far distant past. Only the fortunate can know the true meaning of the Greek word phaios and fully appreciate its beauty."

Please check out this list of postdoctoral fellowships that I have been gathering for a year & sharing over Twitter. There are many great lists of postdoc jobs in ecology, but I started this spreadsheet of fellowships as a way to help those for whom fellowships can 1) alleviate financial insecurity, and 2) provide flexibility in job location. Please share widely and get in touch if you have opportunities to add. As of October 2016, there are 128 fellowships with active deadlines! I'm currently expanding this database to include teaching postdoctoral opportunities.
