The Postdoc

When we started this blog, the majority of the contributors were graduate students. Now, everyone has moved onto other stages in their careers (good job! go team!). But as I was the youngest when we started, I am the only one who remains pre-PhD (but finishing up this spring!).

And as a result, I am thinking about/applying to postdoctoral positions. I have written a bit about the postdoctoral position in the grand scheme of academia (here and here(especially the second post, Jeremy really summed it up excellently)).

And adding to the stack of interesting reading, this post about how a new PI views postdocs and how their plight is viewed from someone recently on the other side.
