We hope the new semester is treating you well, and we also want to congratulate these C-DEBIers who have started new positions: Jackie Goordial (Postdoctoral Fellow at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University), Cara Magnabosco (Assistant Professor at ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich)), Gus Ramirez (Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill), Stephanie Schroeder (STEM Director at Carleton College), Elizabeth Trembath-Reichert (Assistant Professor at Arizona State University), and Katrina Twing (Assistant Professor at Tennessee Tech University). We also congratulate C-DEBI Senior Scientist Beth Orcutt (Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences) to be awarded the 2019 Asahiko Taira International Scientific Ocean Drilling Research Prize “for outstanding transdisciplinary research accomplishment in ocean drilling” at the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting Honors Ceremony (11 December in San Francisco).

And don’t forget we have two more Networked Speaker Series talks coming up this year! This Thursday, Dr. Jessica Labonté (Texas A&M Galveston) presents “You are what you eat: a geochemical and microbial study of a 3000-year old stratigraphic sediment succession” at 12:30PM Pacific Time. The series ends with  Dr. James Bradley (Queen Mary University of London) on November 7 with “The power of microbial life in marine sediments.” Talks from Dr. Jeanine Ash (Rice University) and Taylor Royalty (University of Tennessee) earlier this year are archived on the NSS website.
