These last two weeks have been a 'carpe diem' season in our lab. Leticia Paiva, one of our post-docs working in complex systems, has got a permanent position in the Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP). A week before, Paulo Cristaldo, our former PhD student working on inquilines, was hired by the State University of Minas Gerais (UEMG) as a lecturer. Well done you both! The list of lecturers among former members of the Lab of Termitology is growing steady!
