Hi all! Just came across this community/magazine and I'm just tickled to meet other people who love cute squishy sucky invertebrates! WHEE I am particularly fond of cephalopods, nudibranchs, and cnidarians.

I recently graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelors degree in zoology, and one in biology. However Oregon's job market [tonmo edit: "sucks" will do :) ], so I remain unemployed. I've decided to go to graduate school for a PhD. Anyone have any good recommendations of west coast grad programs in biology, marine biology, or zoology?? I looked up some today but word of mouth is always good too.

Welcome Paige, and good luck! There are graduate research proposals in the science forums, and that would give you an idea of what's desirable to at least one academic scientist....

:welcome: indeedy; afraid I'm at the other end of the world to the US folk, so it would be a major move/relocation to study cephs.

Hajimemashite!

My name is John, and I too would like to say hello and that not all is lost in the world of marine biology/ zoology. Good luck, and you may want to apply around the country. I look forward to reading your posts.

Welcome to TONMO, where the past, present, and future is Cephalopods!

Sushi and Sake, (Gochiso-sama)!

Nah. :twisted: need not worry, Sir Dr. ummmmm... is quite monogummous.
Well thank :cthulhu: for that... would hate to see Paige summarily frightened off by casually visiting TONMO and discovering a Photoshop of herself starring in The Paige of Innocence or something similar. :roll:

Anyway - :welcome:

"The Page of Innocence"?

Just what are you reading in your spare time, Kat? :lol:

Is this like the time I photoshopped a friend's head onto a squid and sold it to the FOX network?
