( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I agree with what the others have said, but I wanted to add that maybe, if industry is out of the picture and the post-doc padder doesn't appeal, then you could look at support roles.

Many institutes (even groups) have dedicated bioinfo departments or sub-groups, which are really involved with the science and offer great opportunities to get on papers etc... but also provide a great opportunity to learn new skills, especially if you have a good background in biology - many groups prefer to teach biologists computers, rather than CS people biology...

Related to this is hospital / medical genomics work... maybe a bit "conveyor belt" for you!?

Overall I would say look for genomics work, and if you can retain you biology skills, that will only make you more desirable (in the employment sense, I am yet to meet a girl impressed by my PCR / perl skills...)

I don't know what other people think, but htis is at least my impression and the sort of thing I am going for. SO in fact don't do this, I could do without the competition.

Just a something something...
