Hey man! All is well, lab is going amazingly looking at a novel kinase and it's involvement in Metastasis. Had an interview at cambridge today for a PhD so fingers crossed for that! How's things going for you buddy?
Hey dude, sorry for being so delayed, its been a busy few days man. Glad to hear things are looking up on your side and that you feel you made the right choice. That's great. How is it at Hammersmith campus?
I am settling in as well, but our induction has been easy and we've only had a few session this week with only one next week. This id due to the fact that we are supposed to set up meetings with potential supervisors before we make our top 5 project choices. I got my preliminary list, but will meet a few more supies before submission deadline next week. Got to choose from over 90 projects...very difficult.
My commute was dreadful on Monday (first day), took over 2hrs coming in, but only 1h30 going home. Yesterday I went in off peak and the trains were less packed and my journey took 1h15mins. I was lucky as I didn't have to wait for trains and knew my around better. I hate the fact that I have to take the Central line (from Holborn to Liverpool Str) as that part of the line is so full you can't even move or breath and ppl don't want to wait for the next train, so they just pack into an already full carriage. Madness. Oh, a conductor told me to use the piccadilly & central lines (quicker) between SKen and Liverpool Str instead of the circle line (less packed but takes longer).
Anyway, this week and next week I'm commuting from Chelmsford (Essex) to Liverpool Str on the rail network instead of using Stansted Airport. Its about 5 pounds cheaper per trip but that means I have to catch a lift with my wife to Chelmsford which is 25-30mins away (Stansted is just 15mins away). Crazy I know, but at least I spend that time (morning and evening) with my wife (she works in Chelmsford).
As you can see I've been a busy boy
hey man, how you getting on with your commutes? Mines going well, love my course, coursemates etc. the commute is only an hour
Hey! I came across your post in a thread where you mention you gave an interview for MRes structural biology at Birkbeck for Oct 2012. Did you get a place?
I am starting this program this oct so I was looking for people who will also be there as it would be nice to know someone before it all begins. let me know
I don't know you personally (obviously), but you seem to be one of the best informed people using this site . I could like your opinion on this:
A very good friend of mine is interested in doing an internship (he had MSc offers from UCL, King's and Queen Mary, but the supervisor of his diploma thesis does't allow him to complete his undergraduate studies before the start of the term (!), so he can't continue with postgraduate studies in September). The point is:
Do you know where he could seek information for internships in the UK or EU in general?
Thank you very much,
Hmmm....its sad to hear that my friend. Well economic crisis are definitely leading to reduction in scholarships, making life hard for good students with low financial support. I feel you should get a job and do your Msc later through part time. I believe and I could be wrong, that your area of study requires more of a research and case studies than a faculty expertise. I'd say u should join a good library having collection of ur needed research and case studies. And one more thing my friend, Its the will that helps a person to succeed, and m sure you have ample of it. Bdw, before i forget, I have firmed Henley Business School (Uni of Reading) for my Msc in Finance. I hope to come and visit you someday, once m in UK. Take Care friend.
Hey how are you....how's life treating you these days???
What is your friend going to study at Imperial?
Great! My course was at the Cambridge campus not the one at Rivermead, Chelmsford. I am well aware of Chelmsford...I go there frequently for shopping. I live near Stansted Airport and also go to Freeport in Braintree quite often.
When I did my Biomedical Science degree, I did some work experience at Broomfield hospital in their pathology laboratories (biochemistry, haematology, etc.). I did my 3rd year project at Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge which took me 8 months. After graduating last year, I also did some voluntary work experience at a breast cancer lab and recently I spent 4 months working on cancer in a research lab (BMRC) at UEA.
I do hope they allow you to work there. Even if its unpaid (which it almost will be), take it and get as much experience as possible. It will make your CV stronger.
Wow I live in a town near your old uni, I am close to Chelmsford! I actually called the hospital in Chelmsford inquiring about volunteering in the neurology ward. They said it might be possible to arrange something and to send them my CV so maybe I am getting somewhere. What kind of work experience do you have?
