The OSE Graduate Student Organization is organizing a 5k run/walk this month to honor John Spencer, and to have an opportunity to come together to remember our friend and colleague.
The run will take place Sunday, January 15th, starting at 9:00 a.m. (end time 10:30 a.m.). The race will start at the S16 parking lot adjacent to the Coverdell Building (~552 DW Brooks Drive, Athens), and the course will wind through the UGA campus. See the 5k Run Flyer with Map for more details.
As this is an informal, community 5k, there is no entry fee. However, we recommend a participant donation of $10. Funds raised will be donated to the Upper Oconee Watershed Network in John’s name to promote the protection of urban streams that he was passionate about.
The tentative program for GSS 2017 scheduled for January 27th and 28th now available!

Today at Peanut Butter club, Sarah Budischak discussed the transition from lowly graduate student to research postdoc. It was really informative, and she has shared some materials from the discussion. So check out this sweet spreadsheet of potential postdoc funding sources.
This is the first post on our new domain. I was lazy, and just manually transferred the little content we had from the other page over. As such, I didn’t bring any of the old posts with me, so this is the first post. Hopefully having the official `ecology.uga.edu` address will help make this page more used.
