@Mrs.KMM:  Hello there fellow research bee! I’m a grad student, defending sometime in the next few months. I’m in a neuroscience program, currently doing epilepsy research. What about you, what do you study? Are you a grad student, post-doc?

I don’t actually DO the research, but I am a phlebotomist in a pediatric endocrinology lab, so there are always studies for which I draw blood.  One cool on links a particular adenovirus to childhood obesity, and now they’re investigating further to see if it also leads to or contributes in any way to childhood type 2 diabetes.

I’m currently working a contract position for a large nonprofit doing research on issues related to homelessness both nationally and locally (Atlanta). I just graduated with my master’s in Social Work and am trying to get my foot in the door with this organization.

I just finished up working a postbac in an anxiety lab for 2 years, where we studied psychophysiological reactions to anxiety-inducing stimuli in a range of disorders (most of my work had to do with social anxiety, but not by choice – PTSD was more my style).

Now I’m in grad school and I’m switching gears into physiological and psychological factors that affect the incidence and development of chronic pain – ethnic differences, hormone stress reactions, subjective pain ratings, genetics, questionnaires, all the information we can get. I’ll probably also pick up a secondary appointment in a spinal cord injury lab to tie in my injury/pain/trauma focus for internship and beyond.

I’m a wildlife biologist.  I finished my MS in Wildlife Biology / Ecology last year (studying community interactions / seed dispersal in pine forests that are being thinned by bark beetles).  I’m working now for an environmental consulting company, doing a lot of compliance work with energy development.  While I’d prefer more research, I get to be out in the field for 4 or 5 months a year and our company is super pro-wildlife, so all in all I’m a fan!

Well, I’m not majoring in it, but I am a research assistant for a Doctor in International Business. My research specialty is Organizational Behavior, & I just finished writing a dissertation regarding Organizational Justice. I’m presenting it in October at my first conference for doctrates, even though I’m undergrad. I feel very honored & I respect everyone that devotes their time to research! It’s exhausting!

I’m a postdoc in a neuroscience lab and I study schizophrenia. I strictly do benchwork, so I don’t interact with patients. As frustrating as research is on a daily basis, I love what I do!

ETA: My degree was in neuroscience, though my grad work was on a different mental illness. Also, I’m in an academic setting.

I don’t actually do the research either, but I work at a CRO in the reports department.
