What’s the Answer? (career path)

This week’s highlighted discussion doesn’t actually have an answer. Yet. The idea is you provide the information, if you are or have been a postdoc in bioinformatics.


Biostars is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the Biostars_logo community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at Biostars that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Thursdays we will be highlighting one of those items or discussions here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at Biostars.


Forum: Quick four-question survey on bioinformatics postdoc career path

If you are in or have been in a bioinformatics postdoc, how did you get there:

There is a related biostars question C: Change career path.

I answered, despite the fact that my late 1990s postdoc may not be all that relevant to current students. It was well before there were any formal programs and educational tracks. It is a question I see over and over on all these forums that I read, and a little data collection might be illuminating. Anyway, go look at the short survey and help out if you have experience.
