High paying postdoc in a cool lab
Postdoc positions suck. They are supposed to. But we all (with very very few exceptions) have to do them if we're dumb enough to do a Ph.D. And if you are dumb enough to try to do phosphoproteomics on a signaling cascade where all of the active serines are surrounded by lysines (like me!) you may get to do a second Postdoc.
We have to do them because they are pretty much essential to prove that we know what we're doing and to get good publications and grant money and that our success (or lack thereof) during our grad school days were the results of us and not our PIs. They suck because the pay is often bad, you may not get benefits, you might end up with a bad project, and you might end up stuck working for a psycho...or two...
So when a good friend of mine asked me to spread word about a postdoc that doesn't have any of the bad things, I figured I might as well put it up. I've been busy doing server things all day and haven't read anything anyway.
This position is one where you would work for someone who isn't a psycho, has great toys (Elite, QE Plus, and some nice Q-things) has cool projects, and pays about twice your average postdoc salary. You can check it out here.
