I'm not sure you'll remember me, but we met on a pygywyg away weekend
in the Peaks about 4 (?) years ago. We spent alot of time talking as
we walked up the hill to those lovely crags. It's great to know you're
still so involved in it all.
I've just seen an advert for a post-doc at Aberystwyth and wondered if
you had any thoughts/advice on it? (I've copied in the advert below)
I'm assuming you love the place seeing as you've stayed on there??
Having taken time off in the last 3 years to have kids, I'm just
looking for work now and would love to do a post-doc, although there's
not so many around and this one loks particularly interesting.
N.B. I work Tuesdays and Fridays
