Goodbye postdoc

I'm happy to announce that after a great deal of thought and many conversations with my fiance Lisa [1], I've accepted a tenure-track faculty position in the Computer Science Department at the University of Colorado, Boulder. This position is part of the Colorado Initiative in Molecular Biotechnology, which means I'll be hanging out a lot more with molecular biologists and other people who love to study things that go squish. The CIMB is a great initiative that I think will suit me well: one of it's stated purposes is to bring together scientists from a wide variety of disciplines, including computer science, applied math, physics, chemistry, biology and ecology, and I like the inclusion of technology in its focus. Plus, Boulder seems like a great place to live.

The appointment starts in the Fall of 2010, which gives me another year to finish out my postdoc at the Santa Fe Institute, and, more importantly, to finish up a lot of the projects that I've started here on topics like macroevolution and the mathematics of terrorism. So, come Summer 2010, it'll be goodbye postdoc, and hello responsibility! Wish me luck!


[1] Oh yeah. I'm getting married, too!
