That’s PROFESSOR Reed to you, baby

| 19 Comments

Well, it had to happen sometime. Yet another one of our own, veteran TO-poster, long-time PT contributor, hacker, and guru Reed Cartwright, has taken the academic plunge and accepted a tenure-track appointment. (As if it wasn’t enough being the current Huxley Faculty Fellow at Rice University!) Reed starts this coming January 2012 as an Assistant Professor with the Biodesign Institute (does that have the D-word in it?) at Arizona State University. He will be sharing his lab space with Prof. Steve Steve, of course.

Word also has it that, as all good geneticists should, Reed has successfully replicated himself (albeit quite imperfectly, only 50% genetic identity by descent). As you can plainly see above, these life-changing events have had quite an effect on the poor Reed.

Congratulations Prof Cartwright!

Congratulations Reed.

Good luck.

Does anyone else think Reed looks uncannily like a zombie panda?

Congrats!

This look would make for interesting freshmen exam proctoring.

Have you seen what his class looked like? Reed said he gave them extra points if they showed up as zombies that day. Apparently that was a substantial motivation for them.

Best Wishes Reed!

I can see it now; someone walking by his room, glancing in, and exclaiming, “Man, that is one tough professor!”

Congratulations. Aaaah, science moving purposefully onward; merit being rewarded, and what have you. However,’BioDESIGN Institute’? Couldn’t they change their name to the, ‘Biowhatlooks likesomeonedesigneditbutitsreallyRM&NSatwork Institute’.

Congratulations!

Congratulations, and welcome to Arizona, Reed!

Congrats !! If you get bored, roll on down the road to Tucson ( U of A ) and I’ll give you a tour.

My sincere congratulations! Hope you are happy in your new position.

Congratulations on both the job and the genetic replication.

I hope you replicated yourself as an adult, but I suspect you may have taken the easy way out and generated a replicant that is not only a mere 50% match, but also at the neonatal development stage, requiring years of maturation. But they are cute when they’re young.

Is Arizona close enough to Colorado for Dr Prof Cartwright to drop in and give Atheistoclast’s talk for him?

Is Arizona close enough to Colorado

Maybe if one of them is in the SW corner of Colorado, and the other in the NE corner of Arizona? :p

If Aclast does show up for his talk, he might end up looking like that picture after he faces questioning from the audience.

Imagine what Reed would look like if he was wearing a costume.

Was he designed that way? :p

Congratulations, and best wishes.
