So honored to receive an Emmy for Nanette. My gratitude to the Television Academy for recognizing my work, to Netflix for the embrace of my vision & to my team for their humbling faith in me. If you found strength in Nanette, know that our stories matter; our humanity matters.
Wow. Those are some amazingly heinous plots. Well done, @biogeobiochem’s reproducible data analysis class. You’ve outdone yourselves. https://twitter.com/biogeobiochem/status/1172547846479831040
Oh, to be a student in this field at this moment in time must be incredibly exciting.

I'm hiring a postdoc to create geochemical models of thawing permafrost for a new DOE-funded project. Start date is flexible, project duration is ~2.5 years depending on start date.
Come work with us! https://adsteen.github.io/project/permafrost/
If you’re in DC in October, come see me tell a mortifying story about how I once thought the scientific establishment was trying to destroy my career only to discover that actually there are a lot of good people in science and it can be a really nice place to work. :) https://twitter.com/deepcarb/status/1170051958503280640
Hey y'all, Fumio Inagaki @mantle_life is on Twitter now. Thought y'all might want to know!
A very warm congrats to 2019 @theAGU Union Medal, Award, and Prize Recipients - their science makes humanity better! https://eos.org/agu-news/2019-agu-union-medal-award-and-prize-recipients-announced
We have a limited number of spaces available at Deep Carbon 2019: Launching the Next Decade of Deep Carbon Science on 24-26 October 2019 in Washington, DC. Contact DeepCarbon2019@carnegiescience.edu by 12 September 2019 for more information: https://deepcarbon.net/deep-carbon-2019
Heading to @marum_de for an invited talk. If you are in the area tomorrow come listen! I'll speak about our latest work with @archaearama @pbarry10 and @MaartendeMoor @mustyucel and others on the @deepcarb funded "Biology meets Subduction" https://www.marum.de/en/Dates-events/Donato-Giovannelli.html
@UTKnoxville #microbiologist @archaearama travels to the world’s most #inhospitable environments, like #volcanoes, the #Arctic and the #Andes, in search of microbes. Karen Lloyd might just be the Indiana Jones of science! Read more about her adventures: https://fcld.ly/914hqet
Two archaea walk into a cow. The first one says "It's pretty crowded in here." The second one says: "Is there rumen here for us?"
I have a new postdoc position open in my lab: https://jobs.uc.edu/job/Cincinnati-Post-Doctoral-Fellow,-Biology-OH-45201/582604000/ Working on mechanisms of electron uptake in Shewanella and beyond....
Seriously. Greengenes was once quite useful, but now it’s Iike trying to use the Rosetta Stone to translate Spanish to English. Please switch to Silva for 16S taxonomic classifications. I will not pick a side about whether you choose a post-@PhilHugenholtz RED release or not. https://twitter.com/phantomBugs/status/1161777088803692545
Creativity during your #PhD goes a long way, however ridiculous your ideas may seem! Turns out Hamster Balls 🐹can legitimately be used to deploy gas sensors at @OlDoinyoLengaiV. Unorthodox but they survived being rolled into an active volcanic crater! @deepcarb @UCLHC @EmmaLiu31
Microbes have adapted to live on food that is hundreds of years old @biogeobiochem https://phys.org/news/2019-08-microbes-food-hundreds-years.html
Have thermodynamics calculations ever frustrated you? Check out this new mini-review/tutorial (mostly aimed at microbiologists). Nice work from @dugdammit @amend_lab. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/1462-2920.14778
