BioND lab congratulates its former members Sebastian Kuschner and Fanqi Zeng to their new jobs. Basti is moving on to do a PhD with Tiago Peixoto in Vienna following the completion of his master thesis. Fanqi is moving to a PostDoc position in Oxford to apply his agent-based modelling skills in Sociology.
The whole team had a lot of fun at the HIFMB retreat. After 2 years of virtual meetings it was good to meet in person. Due to the very close proximity most of the lab was able to travel to the retreat in a carbon neutral way, which is an added benefit.
An EU proposal in which we participate has been recommended for funding with a perfect 15/15 score and is now at contract negotiation stage. More soon.
The predocs of the lab presented their work at AWI PhD days last week, to much positive response from the audience.
