This past spring I got offered, more or less out of the blue, a post-doctoral position contingent on winning a fellowship.

Today I won the fellowship. 2 years, salary guaranteed. Technically I'll be a federal employee working for NIST, but the lab's on my university's campus. So, yeah, I have a job. And benefits too.

Now I just need to graduate.

Very cool stuff...now get on that graduation stuff!

And that's very interesting, regarding the employer -- so sayeth someone who has 303-499-7111 in his mobile's address book. [Razz]
(Go ahead, call it! =P)

As long as our resident lab rat continues to grace us with her presence, I'm happy. [Wink]

Seriously: congratulations! And best of luck at your new position! [Applause]

Cake?

/me drools

Actually, I have to bake a bunch of cookies tonight for tomorrow's cookie hour. My week to host. Fortunately, there are ~16 people involved in cookie hour so hosting turns don't come up often. This could very possibly be the last one I ever give!

Thanks for the good wishes guys...I need them. [Razz]

ETA: Dr. Who, is that red velvet?
/me drools some more

Pretty soon, you'll be able to stop talking about what you want to do when you grow up. [Razz]

Grow up?
Huh?

Steen, don't worry. The worst that can happen is I'll burn myself with an IR laser. And, since I know how to be safe around beams of light I can't see, that's not very likely to happen.

That's no fun. I'm sure we could round up some sharks for you to mount the lasers on...

Sharks are endangered. Ill-tempered sea bass is where its at.

Congratulations! Welcome to the world of work. It's more stress than a PhD, but the money is better. (At least in my case)

\skulks off back to neutron bothering.

Well Done Doctor (if I may be so presumptious?) Xanth. Seems like the hard work is paying off. [Smile]

Not a Dr. yet guys. I'll let you know when that happens.

Dr. X does have nice ring to it, Shroom. Hmmm....
