i think that if you can get a PhD in science, then you can do practically anything BECAUSE IT'S SO DARN HARD!

i just finished myself, and was FREAKING OUT for the majority of it. but i am glad i finished. and to my surprise i got offered 4 jobs without having to apply for anything! and no, i havent actually managed to publish anything yet so it's got nothing to do with publication record.

i'm thinking of trying out my current post-doc for a year or two, then heading off (i'm in australia). probably to europe. then coming back to sun, sand, and surf and doing a masters in pharmacy at university!

but stick with it julie - it'll be over before you know it. i think as a student you lose perspective and think that it has to be the most important thing in your life. but it's not!

it's much easier to quit a post-doc and do something else than it is to bring yourself to quit a PhD! a post-doc is JUST A JOB!

I am currently in your situation too Julie, although I have to finish up by April and then I am not too sure what to do after that. I have been offered a job here in Aus. I understand it is really tough. I decided to do a PhD because I am fascinated by biology and knowing how things works. If I was in it for the money I wouldn't be doing a PhD!!!!!

Ros where abouts are you from?
