We are very happy to announce that Victor was awarded an EMBO long term fellowship. The fellowship will support his postdoctoral work over the next two years. Congratulations!
We are happy to welcome Victor Jones as a new Postdoc to the lab. Victor finished his PhD at Oxford University working on the evolution of rooting cells in land plants using the emerging model plant, the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha.
We are happy to have Diana as a new lab member. Diana joined the team to help to make our anemone care more efficient and professional. The anemones love her and so do we. In addition, we have Desiree back and Sebastian Baumgarten for a short term visit. It´s starting to get cosy in lab:-)
Sebastian Baumgarten from the Voolstra lab at KAUST has arrived to spend some weeks with us in the lab. It´s going to be great science and lots of fun:-)
Philipp joins the Guse lab to start his PhD as a member the new Graduate Research Training Group: Evolutionary Novelty & Adaptation – from Molecules to Organisms. This Graduate Training Group is funded by the Baden-Württemberg Landesgraduiertenförderung and unites nine diverse research groups at Heidelberg University and Karlsruhe Institute of Science and Technology (KIT) with a common interest in evolutionary, developmental and cell biology as well as ecology. Together with Philipp, eight new PhD students will start their PhD projects in 2015 within this program.
Liz Hambleton has decided to join our team as a new Postdoctoral Fellow. Welcome Liz, we are happy to have you back in Heidelberg!
Recently, Madeline Bucher and Iliona Wolfowicz have joined the Guse Lab. Madeline has spend her summer on a boat in Iceland doing some whale research and will now start her PhD work on Aiptasia development. Iliona has come all the way from sunny Portugal to work on coral symbiosis in Heidelberg, which will hopefully be sunny again by next summer… Madeline and Iliona are both part of two prestigious PhD programs. Madeline has been selected into the Heidelberg “Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology” (HBIGS) and Iliona is a member of the Graduate Program in Basic and Applied Biology (GABBA) of the University of Porto. Congratulations & Welcome!
