Hello, I'm JaneB and I blog over at 'Now, what was I doing?'. And this month I get to host the Scientiae Carnival!
Summer is a good time for day-dreaming and thinking Big Thoughts, free from (some of) the stream of student enquiries, emails and phone calls that disrupt our time during the semester. So for this carnival, I thought it would be fun to revive an old game we played in my grad-lab, 'Fantasy Institute'. The rules of the game are simple - you have been selected as the Director of a newly endowed research institute. It is your job to decide where the institute will be based, its codes of conduct, its structure, and who you will hire.
Dream away! Tell us what would make your institute a haven for scientists. A 'everyone must leave by 5pm' rule? A woodland setting with squirrel feeders? Daily shipments from your favourite supplier?
Please submit posts on this, or any topic related to women in science (or making the world of science a better place to work), by emailing the permalink URL of your post to scientiaecarnival [a] gmail [dt] com by 11:59 pm GMT on Wednesday, June 30th. The carnival will be posted by July 1st.
