After a long start to 2020 including the past four very busy weeks, I’m happy to announce that today March 16th 2020 I accepted a position as Research Scientist at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development in Baltimore, MD, USA.
I have recently been getting reminder emails from the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists. The application deadline is July 15th, 2018!
Last year I submitted an entry to this competition and I enjoyed the experience, even if it was a bit rushed.
Starting this week, I’ll be doing my research with the Lieber Institute for Brain Development (LIBD) as Andrew Jaffe's first Ph.D. student there. My main advisor will continue to be Jeff Leek which is great for me.
Today Jeffrey T. Leek and Steven L. Salzberg published a paper commentary in Genome Biology today titled “Sequestration: inadvertently killing biomedical research to score political points” (Leek & Salzberg, 2013) which I think is a must read for anyone.
During the weekend while I was talking with a friend and former colleague, I realized that my name was mentioned in the acknowledgments section of a paper :) I haven’t been much in touch with what’s been happening back home, so this was a nice surprise.
