Graduate Opportunities in EEB at Houston

| 7 Comments

Last summer, I began working as a postdoc at the University of Houston. I was initially unsure about the move, but I am pleasantly surprised with the city and the university. There is a strong, core group in ecology and evolutionary biology here. Thus I pass on this student recruitment letter, with the mention that if you attend school here, you will get to hang out with Prof. Steve Steve.


The Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Houston (UH) welcomes applications for its graduate program in Evolutionary Biology and Ecology for Fall 2010. The following faculty in the area of Evolutionary Biology and Ecology are seeking graduate students for their labs:

Blaine Cole ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Evolution and social behavior
Dan Graur ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Theoretical molecular evolution
Diane Wiernasz ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Ecological genetics
George Fox ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Experimental evolution and origin of life
Gregg Roman ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Evolution of behavior
Rebecca Zufall ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Genome and molecular evolution
Ricardo Azevedo ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Evolution
Steve Pennings ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Community ecology
Tim Cooper ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Experimental evolution
Tony Frankino ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Evolution of complex traits
Yuriy Fofanov ([Enable javascript to see this email address.]) — Evolutionary bioinformatics

So the Texas education system is evolving?

Crap and I just moved to Austin. Dang.

BTW: In spite of what you might have heard about Texas education, the colleges and universities aren’t like that. They are very good schools.

The problems are with the k-12 school boards… and most of the people here are too stupid to realize they are being lied too.

Weird. That makes about 5 people who post here from Austin. And here I figured I was the only one in all of Texas.

Yeah, but we still do a pretty crappy job on higher education here in Texas. The Austin-American Statesman pointed out the other day that Texas has 3 level-1 universities.

California, with about about a quarter more people, has 30.

Here’s another one, sending out feeble bleats from Collin County, TX, where your vote only counts in the Republican primary (to the extent that it counts at all), and where nearly every City Council, School Board or other public deliberative body regularly puts big muddy footprints all over Amendment I of the Constitution.

Marginally OT:

The Texas Republican candidates for governor will be debating Jan 29. As of now, they include Rick “I appointed McClendon” Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, and Debra Medina. TV station KHOU’s web site has a slot that allows TX citizens to submit questions to the candidates. I sent the following:

Do you believe there is any scientific (not political, religious or personal) controversy regarding the Theory of Evolution? If so, do you plan to stack the Texas State Board of Education with persons who share that belief, and make Texas, like Kansas from 1999-2006, and Dover, Pennsylvania in 2005, a laughingstock for the scientifically literate worldwide?

Will the question be asked of the candidates? I hope so, but I doubt it. Their answers would be revealing. Anyway, I lit a candle, now I’ll curse the darkness.

Anyone claiming that European trend socialism is not a goal of the current left wing in America is either clueless to the point of stupidity or an unconditional prevaricator. Socialism is a system that attempts to put both industry and money dominance subordinate to a focal office for “fair” or “equitable” dispersion under central planners. When the administration buy a major stake in GM, that IS Socialism! When the regime seeks to command the Health Care system, that IS Socialism! When the government hands billions to Wall Street to distribute their danger throughout the whole population, that IS Socialism!

If your alternative is Limbaugh, Beck, Coulter–or Boehner, DeMint, and Inhofe, then yes, color me socialist!

Did this have something to do with graduate programs at UH, or are you just a spamslinger?
