Women in Science
Part-time and flexible working
Video clip: Jane has a postdoc who is doing a project that involves long term experiments so Jane thinks that her career might benefit from working part-time.
I have just, I’ve got a post doc coming back who in her case, her project would be better suited to go part time for a year, and I’ve suggested this to her and she hasn’t yet decided if she wants to do six months full time or one year part time. My view is there’s a lot experiments that will, the results, they’re long term experiments, and so her career will benefit from having the year part time. But she hasn’t decided yet.
