Moving back to Sweden, when? Did you just come here to finish your phd in bugs right? Got a nice job lined up playing with bugs in Sweden?
We were always planning on moving back. Especially since the wife has a 15 yo boy who lives with his dad back in Sweden. He was over here in April last year but we haven't seen him since simply because we can't afford it on my crappy salary.
I'm here now on my third year as a postdoc during which time we've managed to produce two Americans
I don't reallyl have a job waiting for me but as it is I'm up for a phone interview Monday morning for job as taxonomist at the Swedish Species Information Center. If I get it we might even have to move back earlier than the currently scheduled end of January next year.
Actually, moving back earlier would be a good thing since our Toyota Camry -85 isn't running very well. Had it in for an evaluation and for the absolutely necessary repairs it's $1397.94+tax! For a car worth $500 if it didn't have the whole break system failing.
If I don't get that taxonomist job, however, I may have to wait for ppl to retire from their curator positions at the Swedish Museum of Natural History which is what my career is narrowed done for. Fortunately I have unemployment insurance covering me for a year once we get back. Not much but should keep us afloat.
No, I never got into this for the money...This comment was edited on Sep 15, 19:37.
