My first day of work will be in a lab I have never seen, and I have no idea what to expect. How do you start a new job during a pandemic? If you followed my dissertation writing blog, you know I graduated at the very beginning of the COVID-19 quarantine. Luckily, I was still able to get a post-doc position during this time. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic I wasn't able to do an on site interview, so while the people were great when I met them at the SfN conference, I don't really know much about this position. Anyone have any advice? What is it like to transition from grad student to post-doc? Has anyone else had new people recently join their lab? How have you been able to train them with most labs working at limited capacity? Any advice is appreciated.
