Julie,
   Thanks for this notice. I appreciate how you are looking out for me. I have given you name on all my geoed applications and have unashamedly dropped you name in my research statement.  That's one thing I love about this field, it is very easy to become a colleague with the core group of people.
   CWU is in my home town, so of course I am making that application a priority. I was fortunate enough to learn about this opening at GSA and was able to talk to a couple of the faculty members. Still, I appreciate your announcements, I sometimes wonder if I have found all of the openings, so it is helpful to know that people like you "have my back".  Thanks.
