I am starting my lab as an Assistant Professor at a Big Research University (summer 2010). I have a super partner and an adorable kiddo, Mini-G. I tend to rush into things and then figure them out as I muddle along. I'm sure that will be true here, too. I hope to use this space to maintain my sanity and share my perspectives on science and academia. These perspectives may sometimes qualify as rants. There will undoubtedly be some crazy times on the tenure track. Gmail me [at] primaryinvestigator

I have had quite a bit of fun getting to know everyone as I start my adventure on the tenure track. So thanks to everyone that stopped by and made me feel welcome both here at LabSpaces and in my original Blogspot home. I appreciate all of the advice, insight and camraderie. I hope that next year is even more fantastic!! So here goes with the first year of Balanced Instability:
