What types of job are you looking for? How's the market there?


Awesome! Sam is a love-bug. And Sis made a good point about the BSL. If you live in the suburbs, you'll most likely be cool.
I'm going to do a post-doc in industry and I should be done with my dissertation by April. The market out here is awesome for PhDs. There is so many biotech and pharmaceutical companies it's not even funny-Astra Zeneca, Millenium, Wyeth, Novartis, and Genzyme to name a few. Cambridge and Waltham are just a couple of the towns that are loaded with them. If you want a post-doc in academia there's of course Harvard and all the major Boston schools, plust Tufts and UMass Medical which is near me in Worcester.

Bug is actually his nickname (because he had so many when I found him!).

I'm going the academia route. My 'interview' is at Harvard; a prof at their eye institute would like to collaborate with our lab and has offered a post-doc position so unlike typical interviews I will get to work at the bench for a week in their lab...I think this will give me a good indication whether I will like it or not.

I hadn't considered a post-doc in industry. I'd bet you get much better pay and benefits.
