This blog

With the successful completion of my first postdoctoral fellowship in academia in sight, I've decided to pursue a second fellowship in the private sector.  My goal is to explore as much of science as I can, in order to see if my goal of being a professor is still the best route for me.  I have three job interviews scheduled for the coming month, one with a pharmaceutical company, one with a government lab, and one with a private company contracting at a government facility.  All three of these jobs will involve working with applying my skills to new chemotherapy agents.  Since these will be patented drugs, very little of my work will be published.
The goal of this blog is to show that although I am not publishing, I am still keeping current on newest advances in my field -- both at the level of machines and software, and with the current literature.  It also keeps me writing, which is something that I don't want to get out of the habit of doing.
