Dear MsPhD -

Thank you for your blog. I have read it for a few years and I often feel as if I am reading something that I could have wrote. I appreciate you taking the time to write; you have made me feel less alone as a female STEM junior faculty.

Wow, thanks! I'm glad you like it!

What can I say? Keep fighting the good fight.

Dear Ms PhD

Just wanted to give you a heads up on a recent post over at DrugMonkey about Francis Collin's recent announcements on NIH funding rollbacks and warnings on the egregious numbers of soft-money positions.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on whether this works fer postdocs or agin postdocs trying to make TT when you have the time.
