I’ve been silent for quite a while; I’ve been gadding around having fun and being cultured for the past few months. Now it’s time to get back into the scientific swing of things. I start my PhD in a couple of weeks, eep!
Whenever people ask me what my PhD is in, they generally expect an answer like “biology” (in which case they assume you’re about to turn into a plant), or chemistry (in which case they assume you’ll end up blowing yourself up before you’ve managed to hand in your thesis). In my case, things are a bit more difficult.
My PhD project title is “Low dimensional chemistry”, but I’m located in a Molecular Biology/Biotechnology department…but I’m funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
I guess that means my job description is just “Scientist (all disciplines (except social..gawd what do you take me for?!))”.
To make things a bit clearer it’s “something to do with photosynthesis”.
How vague and unilluminating. More later.
Post script: sadly “low dimensional chemistry” sounds significantly less exciting and impressive than it actually is. I’ll refrain from disclosing that description in future.
Addendum: AAARGGGHHH I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING I’M NOT CUT OUT FOR THIS I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING I’M JUST A TERMITE AARRGHH.
