I've been doing these year-end summaries for quite some time now. Previously I've posted a link to the first post of every month. For this year I'm going to shake it up and post the last entry of the month.
Jan: In the NIH extramural grant funding world the maximum duration for a project is 5 years.
Feb: There are these moments in science where you face a decision...Am I going to be the selfish asshole here?
May: By now most of you are familiar with the huge plume of vapor emitted by a user of an e-cigarette device on the streets.
Jul: The other lesson to be drawn from recent political events and applied to science careers is not to let toxic personalities drive the ship.
Sep: The NIH FOAs come in many flavors of specificity.
Oct: Imagine that the New Investigator status (no prior service as PI of major NIH grant) required an extra timeline document?
Nov: So. A federal judge* managed to put a hold on Obama's move to increase the threshold for overtime exemption.
Dec: If you love the NIH and its mission, your mantra for the next four years is a simple one.
