Post doc interview tomorrow…

Sorry for the absence guys, but I got an invite to an interview with a really big player in the academic area I would want to continue in, one of the only ones I would consider personally interesting enough to stay in Academia for actually, but with less than a week to prepare and two of those days occupied by professional development courses it has been tiring.

I give a seminar to the institute, or as much of it as will attend, and then spend the day with the lab group talking about their current and future research, and basically convincing them I am not an idiot and am actually in fact also cool to hang out with 9 hours a day. I am surprisingly nervous, but hope that will fade tomorrow, but all in all, this whole application process is getting really exhausting….

So well, if you think of it, tomorrow cross your fingers and think ‘she is smart! she knows her stuff! you DO want to work with her!’ for me and that would be rad¨


About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
