No, not yet, i’ve only been doing science research for two years yet.
Really a lot. I have been a Prof for 8 years, and its 33 years since my first degree. I wish I could say I knew more though
A fair amount as I’ve been doing research for 9 years now. During this time the main things that I have learnt are how to identify interesting questions in my field and the general tools that I can use to solve them. When it comes to individual experiments it still takes me a long time to plan the methods that I will use if I haven’t done that experiment before. For example, what chemicals am I going to need and what equipment I need and how to use it. Normally there are lots of other people in the same department (or at another university) who can help with this sort of thing.
Thirteen years since I finished my degree.
..What!?! Has it been that long? OUCH.
I think that I’m a baby when it comes to science experience! I’m in my 3rd year of my PhD, I’ve got another year or so to go, and before this obviously I did my degree which had a bit of practical experience, and I also did a summer project between terms in a lab during my degree, but yeah, compared to others, I’ve not got THAT much experience really, though still, three years in a lab every day is quite a bit!
