Readers will have to excuse any deficiencies in the content or presentation of this week’s digest. Jane is enjoying a well-deserved week off, so this week the Opps Digest comes to you from the keyboard of Chris. He isn’t quite as awesome as Jane, nor as Norwegian.
Things have picked up this week, but as ever we invite one and all to contribute to the Opportunities Digest: If you receive calls for papers, notifications about conferences and events, relevant job opportunities or online resources, we’d love to hear about them!
Soon, we won’t have any more (ish) football to watch, and can all get back to our research. As if…
Anyway – thanks for reading (and listening!)
