Welcome to BillG’s Blog!
This blog will be a place where I will be discussing many aspects of academic life, and share experiences from my previous graduate career at the University of Oregon Institute of Molecular Biology, to my current role as a senior postdoc with both research(studying Molecular Developmental Biology at Stony Brook University) and teaching (at Brooklyn College) components, and hopefully in the future to describe the search and transition to a tenure track academic position.
When choosing my undergraduate major, I spent a long time grappling between going into English (to be a writer) or the sciences (to be a veterinarian). Somewhere along the line I found myself doing research in biology, which I believe satisfied both my scientific ambitions and my desire to be a storyteller, so blogging about the academic life seems like a natural addition to my life.
Anyway, please stay tuned, and if you’d like to read more about what I do, please feel free to check out my academic sites…
Also, if you’re a senior graduate student interested in a research/teaching postdoc, we are now recruiting for the next round of IRACDA postdoctoral scholars at Stony Brook University.
