Hear ye, hear ye, o disgruntle doc

May 20 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

The most annoying type of grant to prepare, by several orders of magnitude, is the T32 Institutional Training Grant.

I can't believe anyone signs up to be the PI of one of those more than once.

So when you are whining about how PIs exist only to exploit you, postdocs, um...shaddap.

    Maybe all those whiny postdocs could be replaced with happy unpaid interns? That way you wouldn't have to suffer through writing the T32.

    I didn't say I was writing one Holmes. I would have to be waterboarded into it.

    Ugh, writing a T32 right now.....if only you had been there shouting "run while you can"! But what does that have to do with disguntle [sic] docs?

  • troll says:

    Well I suppose it WOULD be difficult for you to write a document proving you're actually training your "trainees" rather than using them as benchmonkeys as per usual.

  • drugmonkey says:

    fair point, troll, fair point.
