A Lady Scientist - Brand New Postdoc

It’s a new year and a fine new time for me to resume blogging here at LabSpaces. 2010 was a good year for me in more ways than one. I finished my Ph.D. and graduated (I plan on blogging here about my defense). But 2011 promises to be even better.  I started my brand new postdoc yesterday in an entirely different field than my graduate work and that...

A Lady Scientist - What I wish I knew before I started writing

From Superbug's Zazzle store. I'm beginning to think I should pick up about a half dozen of them to wear at all times.Since my entire life right now revolves around dissertating, it takes too much energy to write or think about anything else. Ergo, that is what I’m going to write about.What I wish I knew before I started writing...(1) How lonely it...

A Lady Scientist - Help! I've fallen (into my dissertation) and can't get out!

The radio silence around these parts can be easily accounted for: I’m writing my dissertation. Prior to this time, I always laughed at people who said that this was the most painful part of the graduate school process. I mean, how painful could it be? All you were doing was writing up what you had done over the past N years. It couldn’t be as bad...

A Lady Scientist - 10 words

When I started blogging, I felt like a loser. My lab was small and the other grad student in my lab was nearing the end of his graduate student career. That meant that he was having great success in the lab. As I had just passed my quals and just started the meat of my project, I was not having such great success. I was working very hard, but hardly...

A Lady Scientist - Two Places at Once

In case you’re just joining me, I’m looking for a postdoc position. One of the key factors, for me, in looking for a postdoc position is if my husband, Dr. Man, can find a job there too. We did the living a part thing for a year, which was awful (but was why I started blogging), and I never want to do that again. In a job where work-life balance is...

A Lady Scientist - Tooting Horns

One day when I was, oh, about six I was at church with my family. After the service, we had donuts and the kids could play on the playground. There was this boy who kept bugging me about things he could do that I could not. Those were things like hang upside down on the monkey bars (I had on a dress and had reached that point of modesty) and reach...

A Lady Scientist - A Proper Introduction

The life of a grad student is never calm. I just finished playing bridesmaid for LabFriend. Currently I am preparing for a job interview in a few days, writing a paper, writing a chapter for my dissertation, and last, but certainly not least, I’m settling into my new digs here at Lab Spaces. And I think it's time for me to properly introduce myself.I’m...
