Postdoc position available - Brodie Lab at UVA. Now hoping for a start by January 2020. Initial project involves analysis of spatial data on phenotypic and genetic variation in a predator-prey arms race, but lots of other possibilities too.

Not to be an advisor who likes to hassle their students or anything...should we call it a colubrid (dipsadine) or dipsadid?

First up for is Philodryas baroni. This South American snake is an opisthoglyphous colubrid, meaning it has grooved, rear-fangs that can deliver a mild venom. Despite this, it has still made it well into the pet-trade! Original photo: Tokyo 🐍 Center

I love my whiteboard! And I give one to each student or postdoc in my lab so they can have lists of things they never get to as well. It’s part of my training program.
