    Anyone got any employment ideas

    I don't know whether anyone has got any ideas on this, but I thought it might be worth asking. I obtained my PhD in Chemistry in 2009, after working in a lab for 6 years previous to that. But I was always wracked with self-doubt that I was actually good enough - that every stage I had passed (A...
