10 simple rules for overcoming challenges and leveraging the unique opportunities presented by remote postdoc positions in @PeerJPreprints https://t.co/Xrr2ZPqzJy
Remote postdoc-ing is an interesting (and perhaps increasingly popular) idea - but can it ever replace the *considerable* benefits of in-person interaction and social/cultural engagement? Read the 10-simple rules for PIs and postdocs here, as a guide
I love the idea - #remotePostDocs & more flexibility in working across labs is what can push science onwards. I've done it, always with great success - & no serious drawbacks outweighing benefits. Even if not 100% remote - negotiate to make yours flexible! https://t.co/wgmDpdACYb
