Now the author claims it’s a ‘joke’

Published on July 2nd, 2010 | By: pwray@ceramics.org

Postdoc hell, circa 1996. What a laugh riot it must have been working for this guy at Caltech.

‘In addition to the usual work-day schedule, I expect all of the members of the group to work evenings and weekends. You will find that this is the norm here at Caltech.’

    I agree with Colin, I have the same idea. (By the way I started to work during weekend, but at restaurent instead of lab! YES, we are still student, but we need money to live! They just dont care about us)

  2. Dan says:

    My PhD advisor was upset that I didn’t work Sundays like the rest of the lab. So she fired me.

    Yes, this is normal: while you might not make as much money as the private sector, you will work worse hours and get no glory…welcome to academia.
