Submission + - Advice for a new postdoc in Molecular Biology? (

cephalien writes: "Dear Slashdot:

I realize that many of you are probably in tech-related fields, but I'm hoping I can get some specific advice of a different nature. I'm set to receive my PhD in molecular biology within a few weeks, and I'm wondering if those of you in this community have any experiences you can share along those lines. What should I look for, negotiation points, etc, etc. I realize that much of this anecdotal evidence, but a good cross-section will help me decide how best to choose among my alternatives in terms of positions."

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
