Compactus shelving systems available

January 15, 2018 By: Karen Chance Category: Admin Notices Print This Post Print This Post

We are in the process of changing 2 of our Seed Stores to Growth Rooms, as a result we have two Compactus Shelving systems that we are looking to dispose of and wondered if they would be of any use to someone on campus.

The systems comprise of 8 racks of shelving which run on floor mounted rails, the dimensions of the system are 4.5M long x 2M wide and 2.2M high. I have attached a couple of photos.

If anyone wants this equipment, please contact me by phone or email.

We do need to dispose of it before the end of February.

VOLUNTEER MENTORS FOR UNDERGRADUATE CLASS WANTED!

January 08, 2018 By: Karen Chance Category: Admin Notices, General Print This Post Print This Post

I am looking for volunteers to mentor second year undergraduate students during their discovery learning (a.k.a. research project) in Foundations in Plant Science on the occasional Tuesday in Semester 1 2018 for between 6 and 15 hours in total.

I am looking for the following:

  • Anyone with an interest in any aspect of science related to plants and their growth
  • Individual mentors and mentor teams are both welcome but being part of a team gives our mentors greater flexibility if someone can’t attend class (eg a team of a PhD student with their supervisor seems to work well).

This is a great opportunity to partake in undergraduate teaching (especially if you are an ECR), which always looks good on your CV. We will also be providing a professional development workshop (2 hours) for mentors before classes start.

If interested please contact me at amanda.able@adelaide.edu.au

Adelaide Microscopy Christmas Update

January 08, 2018 By: Karen Chance Category: Admin Notices Print This Post Print This Post

Dear Prof Keller

On behalf of the team at Adelaide Microscopy I would like to express my thanks for the support of all the research students, supervisors and users of the centre this year. We are very grateful, especially to the Research group leaders who have helped us recently in bringing up-to-date our user records and project details.

Next year we see changes to our charging structure, which has remained unchanged for the past three years. The major change is a slight increase in the student rate and the removal of the staff rate for major equipment use. Moving to a single rate, the lowest rate nationally, brings the centre in line with all other Australian Microscopy core facilities. The new rates will be posted on our website by the end of December 2017.

Renovations to the Adelaide Microscopy Reception area on the ground floor of Helen Mayo Building North (formerly Medical School North) are now complete. The entrance to our Frome Road laboratory and new Reception area from the front of the building has resumed.  Thank you to the many users of the Centre who patiently accessed the laboratory during the time of the building works.  A new AM meeting room on the ground floor will be completed by early January in time for a number events in 2018.

I wish you all a great Christmas and New Year break.

Many thanks

Angus
