Every lab has dichotomies: young, out-all-night grad students vs old, home-at-night postdocs; NPR listeners vs loud music-ers vs iPod wearers; etc. In this lab, the most pronounced split is the early shift vs late shift.
In an academic lab, "late shift" would generally mean "arriving after 10am, or staying past 8pm". I've had lab mates who roll in around noon, and are still here into the wee hours.
This is not the case here. At this job, I'm part of the late shift because I get here around 9:30, and am here past 3pm. The early shift here is wicked early.
So, to you, dear readers: early bird or not?
