Gough: Felgraf: Man, I *knew* I was nuts going into a PhD in physics in this country, in this day and age. Ah well.

This news comes a month after Gough Jr., an assistant professor of physics, lands his first NSF grant. On the same day, Ms. Gough does the same. I'm not sure of the impact of this impasse, but it can't be good.

Wow. Congratulations to both of you on seriously beating the odds!!

born_yesterday: /I would have to apply to the NIH
//Their grants are running at about 5%

I'm going to be starting a postdoc at NIH in the next month, either on a fellowship or hired by a new PI. But the extramural funding is in absolutely terrible shape. It's completely ridiculous that we keep producing more and more STEM graduates but refuse to invest in the basic science that affords STEM careers.

It's like we're trying to make it as easy as possible for the rest of the world to surpass us.
