But now the date was approaching—and the thesis and the defense weren't the only things weighing on her mind. She was also thinking, “What next?” Until recently, Keren had assumed she’d pursue a postdoctoral position, work hard, and eventually land a tenure-track position at a research university.

Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation - Vienna University of Technology: Job opportunity for PhD-student, TU Wien The Remote Sensing Research Group at the Department of Geodesy of the Vienna University of Technology invites applications for a PhD-student in Earth Observation of Water and Vegetation The candidate will work within the EO-WAVE project ( which aims at improving our understanding of the role of soil moisture in driving global vegetation and carbon cycle dynamics. The project will use novel long-term remote sensing datasets of the water cycle, land, atmosphere, climate, and vegetation to 1) assess the impacts of climate change on the global water cycle and 2) quantify the effects of changes in the global water cycle, in particular changes in drought occurrence and severity, on vegetation and carbon sequestration.

Oxford University to appoint first female vice-chancellor The University of Oxford is to appoint its first female vice-chancellor since its records began nearly 800 years ago, after Prof Louise Richardson was nominated for the university’s most senior office. Richardson, currently the principal and vice-chancellor of St Andrews University, is an expert on the growth of terrorist movements. She held a succession of high-profile positions at Harvard until she was appointed to lead St Andrews in 2009. Students and staff hailed the nomination as a momentous event in Oxford’s history. Richardson, 56, told the Guardian she hoped her nomination would inspire current and potential female undergraduates. “I look forward to the day when a woman being appointed isn’t in itself news,” Richardson said.

Introduction: Communications Tech in the Lab It's a virtuous cycle: Science enables new technology, which then facilitates new science. The result is a society—and laboratories—that scarcely resemble those from only a few years ago. But some would argue that one kind of technology has had less impact on academic laboratories than it should have: communications technology. The Internet, the World Wide Web, smartphones, and social networks have transformed culture. In the laboratory, scientists perform cutting-edge experiments on highly automated instruments—but then record the results with paper and pen, or print them and paste them in old-fashioned lab notebooks with a glue stick.

Graduate Development Programme The British Horseracing Graduate Development Programme has been running for over 20 years, providing an invaluable source of talent to the sport and its supporting industry. Around 300 graduates have completed the Programme and many are now key figures in racing. Graduates from previous years work in management positions in racecourses, bookmakers, the trade press, trainer’s yards, studs, bloodstock sales and the British Horseracing Authority to name a few. A passion for horseracing is a must but experience is not essential. If a career in an exciting, high-profile and challenging industry sounds appealing, then the Graduate Development Programme may be of interest to you. The Programme is intended for degree students in their final year of University or those who have recently graduated.

The unseen women scientists behind Tim Hunt’s Nobel prize This week, Professor Tim Hunt shocked the scientific community, and pretty much everyone else, with his outrageous comments about his “trouble with girls” and his backwards endorsement of gender-segregated laboratories, which are apparently needed because women are impossibly attracted to him. Understandably, commenters have slammed both his sexist comments and his apology. But the most important people in the story have been drowned out: the women scientists who are living proof of just how wrong Hunt is. The field Hunt partly created, as well as his own scientific career, have both flourished due to his intellectual collaborations with women, as well as countless other academic partnerships between men and women, notably in the lab of Sir Paul Nurse.

Work Placement & Under 16s Work Experience Every year we offer a limited number of work placements throughout the zoo. Internships We offer two internship options, the 3 Month Internship Programme and the 1 Year Internship Programme, both of which involve working with our Animal Keeping sections on a voluntary basis. All those doing work placement with the Animal Sections must be at least 18 years old so our internships are best suited to those taking a gap-year between ‘A’-Levels/National Diploma and further studies, sandwich placements or those who have already graduated from University/College, preferably having studied in a related subject. Please note that all placements are voluntary and unpaid.
