Finally, career advice!

It really is worth subscribing to all of those feeds. The excellent 3 Quarks Daily led me to an opinion piece in Science: Opportunities: Breadth versus Depth, by Peter Fiske. His science careers blog is a good read – it has a US bias, but plenty of generally applicable stuff too. Lastly his book, Put Your Science to Work comes highly recommended.

“Our scientific community often struggles with what to do with generalists” translates nicely to “universities struggle with what to do with bioinformaticians” in my mind.
