caroleIt’s finally official after weeks of hints: Carole has won an EU Marie Curie fellowship!!!! These are highly competitive (the application rejection rate is about 85%), prestigious, and come with a nice chunk of research money too.

She’ll be moving to Bristol (sniff, Carole don’t go!!!) to work on rats with my old friend Mike Mendl on the role of memory in the negative cognitive biases shown by depressed people and animals with poor welfare. Good timing: her partner Matthieu flies from France tomorrow, and now he knows to bring champagne… (N.B. For Carole’s previous links to Marie Curie, click here).
