Fellowships, Jobs and All That Jazz…

Several good things came to pass today.

Audrey received notification that her Graduate NASA/Nevada Space Grant was renewed for the 2005-2006 academic year. I believe this is the first time a Nevada graduate student’s grant has been continued. Way to go sweetie! 🙂 [edit: YA spelling error corrected]

I was offered and accepted a temporary position at the Desert Research Institute [addendum: doing archaeological GIS data verification and archive work]. I had worked there from 1991-1998, so there are a lot of familiar folk I will be reacquainting myself with. Several of them look older than when I last saw them. I’m sure they thought the same thing about me. The position will last until the end of the fiscal year (September 30), so this but a short-term solution.

This does mean that I will not be returning to Utah with Far Western, which I have mixed feelings about. Daron, Janie and the whole crew made me welcome in classic Archae fieldworker fashion and I would certainly like to see closure on that project. But, we all understand that people come and go from projects with great regularity. They are a great bunch to work with. I hope it happens again.
