The US Forest Service is currently accepting applications for a Plant Pathologist position, based in Pineville, LA. It doesn’t appear that a degree in plant pathology is necessary, so feel free to share this with people who have a related degree and at least ten hours of coursework in plant pathology. (See the announcement for more details.)
On December 15th, all the students came together to celebrate with our new Graduates: Carolina Avellaneda, Eduardo Chagas, Rebecca Melanson, Siruendra Osti and Bishnu Shrestha. At the party we enjoyed pizza and sweet treats. Everyone have the opportunity to express their creative sides by creating paper snow flakes, making paper chains and decorating ornaments. The faculty were pleasantly surprised by all the festive decorations for our departmental party the following day. Special thanks go to Rebecca Sweany and Brian Ward for organizing and Teddy Garcia and Eduardo Chagas for helping to setup the party. Everyone enjoyed the festive event!!!
