I have recently been selected as one of three graduate students at the University of Washington to receive a Boeing International Fellowship for the 2015-’16 school year! This fellowship is available to all graduate students at the UW and will provide salary for one quarter while I perform fieldwork in Argentina for my dissertation research. I am ready to tackle the remainder of my dissertation research, armed with my recently acquired DDIG and this fellowship. Stoked!
I was recently notified that I made Molecular Ecology‘s top 300 reviewers for the past year! Three hundred sounds like a lot, but this is the top cream 8% of all reviewers over the past year. One becomes a “top reviewer” based on “an index that included the number of reviews completed, the proportion of accepted review requests that led to a review being returned (excluding unassignments before the two week deadline), and the average time taken per review if this was over two weeks”. It’s good to know that your anonymous efforts get noticed by someone!
