Just a quick reminder here that the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation put out a call this summer for proposals from post-docs working on the microbiology of the built environment. The proposals are due this Sunday, September 1st. See our previous post with the details here. The very short description of the call: Research Area of Interest Applications most likely to be of interest should describe innovative fundamental research in the microbiology of the built environment, very broadly defined.
