Following several requests I’ve received, from now on, through the ES/PE blog will be also distributed practical and relevant academic updates such as calls for papers for conferences and workshops, graduate and post-doc fellowships, grants and job openings announcements. Up to now this kind of information was posted only on our social media networks. I hope this new feature will be of great help and interest for you. Feel free to share this post with your colleagues and students. Good luck, Oleg Komlik
