I’m an n-th year post-doc, flirting with the tenure-track job market. Like everyone else I’m trying to find my footing in an exciting but highly competitive field with only murky knowledge about what comes next.
Why am I doing this?
- For some time I’ve been enjoying the discussion about transitioning to tenure-track, about women in science. I’ve learned a lot from the community of bloggers and I’m excited to join in these conversations.
- I want to discuss research outside my specialty. Research that is relevant to me - nutrition, exercise physiology and fitness (and why so much of this is of unclear relevance to women), and whatever else out there strikes my fancy.
- Writing helps me impose order on my thoughts, think through arguments, and (I hope) makes me a better communicator
So hello world! Why are you here?
