Hello!  Welcome back to the Penny University blog.  I hope that everyone had a great Summer.  I wanted to update everyone on the progress of our launch.  You have probably noticed that is has been delayed (since it is most definitely Autumn 2012 right now).  This is due to a current biological botheration, where I am unable to hear everything all of the time, which makes audio recording and editing rather difficult!  As it seems this slight complication is going to persist for a while longer, we thought it was time that we officially launch Penny University with a slightly altered format, henceforth known as Launch: Stage 1.  Once this issue has been resolved, the podcast can start in earnest, with Launch: Stage 2.  I mean, Penny University is going to be so good, it really deserves two official launches anyway, right?

Call for researchers: If you are PhD student or post-doc, no matter whether you’ve just started a new research project or you already have some exciting results, then now is the time to get in touch with Penny University!  We’re looking for people to get involved with Launch: Stage 1 and Launch: Stage 2 – so even if you are really busy at the moment you can register your interest to get involved in the future.  It will only take a few minutes of your time, so head on over to our contact section and get in touch for more details – we can’t wait to hear from you!

Now, until our next thrilling update, when we’ll announce the date of Launch: Stage 1, remember: “Every honest researcher I know admits he’s just a professional amateur.  He’s doing whatever he’s doing for the first time.  That makes him an amateur.  He has sense enough to know that he’s going to have a lost of trouble, so that makes him a professional.” – Charles Franklin Kettering
