Laid off, again…

Well, I am unemployed again.  A casualty of the bad economy and the pharmaceutical industry death spiral.  I went through this three years ago so I know what I’m in for this time around.  It’s not going to be fun but at least I’ve got a decent hobby to take my mind off of things.

If anyone needs a highly motivated and skilled medicinal chemist (Ph.D.) please let me know.

If you see more plans for sale on the website, well, this is why.

    Sorry to hear that Brian. It sucks to be laid off. DAMHIKT, but that was very early in my career. Pharma isn’t a very good place right now, and hasn’t been for a few years. Don’t know what else to say … Sorry. Coming from a retired bench-type academic medical researcher in the NY area.

    A friend of mine , a pharmacist, went to work for a Vet. formulating concern.
    Might be an opportunity if there is one nearby.

    If you truly want a change with little chance of layoffs, then take a look at the US Patent Office. 2.5 years in Virginia…pass a Certification Exam and then you can work from most anywhere in the Continental US. It will take you about 4 to 5 years to get back to a low six figure income.
