As my pre-doctoral sentence of four-to-six-years-with-time-off-for-80-hour-work-weeks was coming to a joyful conclusion, I started to look for opportunities. 

I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Nights and weekends of caring for my research subjects, cup-o-noodle dinners in the med student lounge, and endless hours of counting fluorescently labeled cells and sitting at the electrophys rig would soon be a fond memory. I knew I didn’t want to go the academic route, and had little interest in pursuing a career in bench science.
