Guest Post: Being a Hired Researcher

I’ve written a quick guest post in a series on what it’s like to be a researcher on someone else’s project, a position which come with its own particular struggles and pleasures. You can find it on Pat Thomson’s blog here. I recommend reading the whole series: it includes a bunch of different but helpful perspectives.

I tried to pass on what I’ve learned in the past few months about tactics to make some of the struggles easier, but I also wanted to talk a little about some of the advantages of the kind of postdoctoral position I have—advantages which I think sometimes might not be fully appreciated by the kind of late- or post-PhD people who could be applying for these.
