Here’s an opportunity: you could work with Reed Cartwright at Arizona State University!

    This is off-topic, and I apologize if this has been mentioned in a previous comment thread already, but I haven’t been seeing new Pharyngula entries in my Google Reader today. I tried accessing the RSS feed directly and it redirects to the SOPA/PIPA blackout page. I guess that needs to be fixed.

    FWIW, I’ve been to Arizona State and Northern Arizona State unis.

    good schools.

    Anyone could do far worse.

    bit on the warm side in the summer, though.

    …and let’s not mention the crazy folk that surround the uni.

    you’re fine so long as you stay on campus.

    :)

    seriously, working with Reed would be a great opportunity; he’s a smart cracker, in a field that’s still got some new funding coming its way, and he’ll have a lot to prove so will be doing a lot of handholding for new grad students.

    From what I hear, ASU isn’t too bad (for being smack in the middle of a Red State™) but UofA has problems with some fairly well-entrenched woo-woos. As evidence : http://lach.web.arizona.edu/human_energy_systems_laboratory_hesl

    who seems to actually be getting grants.

    Summers are not a problem. We just go to conferences in New Zealand and Europe during that time. The university is investing a lot of resources into translational research, and I’m part of a center that has a brand new building(s) and is expanding. We got lots of resources and administrative support. So I’m pretty sure it is a good opportunity to do some awesome science. (I’m so confident that I turned down a job in New Zealand for ASU.)

    Oh, and I share lab space with Prof. Steve Steve.

    you might regret that in 20 years.

    but right now?

    economically speaking, that was a good call.

    hell, I’ve spoken to several profs at Vic who think the uni might actually go bankrupt in a couple more years.

    still, I’d take NZ as a place over AZ any day.
