Dear Dr. Worsaee,

After receiving your announcement from a few different lists and each time
lamenting that I already am finishing my PhD and thus not really eligible
for those scholarships, I thought it was worth to ask you whether there are
(or will be) postdoctoral positions for that project, as working doing
microscopic studies of meiofaunal lophotrochozoan and bioinformatics is
very close to my dream postdoc.

Sincerely yours,

  -Lic. Eduardo Zattara-

"Only in silence the word,
only in dark the light,
only in dying life :
bright the hawk's flight on the empty sky"

Lic. Eduardo E. Zattara
PhD Candidate
BEES Graduate Program
Department of Biology
