I help senior Ph.D students and postdoctoral fellows all over the world work as Consultants for University and Pharmaceutical industries. It pays well by the hour and helps companies and Lab chiefs save money too.

How does it work? Not many can afford a PhD for a long term- yet a senior experienced person is always needed to troubleshoot problems that a lab might be facing. The labchief does not have money to hire you full time but will gladly pay you for a day, 2-days, a week or say 15 days to help students out in the lab.

You can consult by phone, exchange emails or go visit depending on geographic convenience and your own regular work schedule.

You see, life is short. As a married post-doc, you need a life, a family and your kids need your time. You have worked hard for your degree, now put it to work- CONSULT.

If you find my mail intriguing enough, write me a note, tell me about yourself, mail me a resume. Don't bother to format it, don't bother to type it even- just handwrite it. You don't have to tell me about your problems and frustrations though- because I understand what you are going through right now. Let me help you make some money using a degree you worked so hard to get.

Email me at : frustrated@mad.scientist.com or send me a letter at TheFallGuy, 5701 S Broadway, Littleton, CO 80121.

I find a particularly rich set of talent among 3rd to 4th year PhD students who have failed many times in their projects and have gained tremendous technique experience. I also find post doctoral scientists doing many projects at the same time particularly useful as consultants.

Publications are not needed or required for you to be a BioConsultant. I just need to see the need within you to use the vast knowledge you have gathered in that doctoral brain of yours. The ship that we call a PhD is a slow leaky boat only if we let it be. It takes a lot of intelligence and patience to get where you are today- now lets use that to make some money that will pay bills and restore your self respect.

Write to me. Use the message above to find my address.

For every frustrated PhD out there, there is a lab chief looking for him or her. Willing to pay any amount of money to get just a few hours of your time.

Not to sound too harsh or anything TheFallGuy but what would you get out of this?

Are you on a commission basis? Is it possible to be a post-doc and still work as a consultant?

Cheers

Nick

Nick - You are not being harsh. It is a legitimate question. We have a fee for the Lab or Group that needs your services. Yes- current post-docs are more than welcome to jump in.

Consultation assignments can last from 2 days to 2 weeks- maybe more. As a post-doc on 'active duty' you may wish to pick and choose your assignments. Some jobs may require only phone/email discussions- others may require you to be onsite. It will be upto you what to take up and what to refuse.

You can visit us on the web too. BioConsultant[/URL]http://www.tait-services.com . Just don't be distracted by the home page. The cover page is the way it is because I help post-docs and graduate students help buy homes while they are still in school. Just go to the services page or the contact us page and write to me from there

Note the dates of their postings! 2005 was a long time ago...

Even the website is dead. Looks like that career-move went well not.
