>Lab Peeps

>Whew! I would say that I finished off a crazy week, but I'm afraid that this is the new normal for me. Nevertheless, I actually got some shit done last week. I now have people in my lab! Yes, plural-people! I hired an undergrad assistant that has already started. Orders are being placed, boxes are being opened and drawers are being filled! I also hired a tech to start next week, lined up a rotation student for the fall AND I'm pretty sure that I landed a postdoc. Things are starting to happen and this whole new lab thing is feeling a little more real.

    >w00t! Getting people in your lab and managing their efforts effectively is the single most important thing you need to be doing right now in order to reach escape velocity. And the first post-doc is, by far, the single most important person other than you in these early days of your lab.
