On the blogs: big science jobs, Blog, M.D.'s second blog
On Nature Network Boston, Deanne Taylor, who works in biotech and is also chair of the Bioinformatics graduate program at Brandeis University, writes about employment trends in biology, biostatistics, informatics and bioinformatics. She says principal investigators in charge of large labs at places such as the Broad Institute oversee postdocs and graduate students mixed in with semi-permanent masters-level technician staff. They provide services from information management and data mining to lab maintenance and experimentation.
"The bigger the project, the more important the technical staff will become," she writes.
Dr. Samuel Blackman, the Boston pediatric oncologist AKA Blog, M.D., has launched a second blog, this one devoted to figures, tables, charts and illustrations related to science and medicine. He calls it Oculata Certitudine, a phrase from Galileo which he says translates into "visible certainty."
