I can cook and clean, am good with the kids, and love pets. If you are looking for an unemployed medicinal chemist feel free to PM me. All that I ask is that you feed and clothe me. How pathetic has the science industry in America these days? 24 y.o. and I am already going to be unemployed?? Today my company found out that the only drug that we have in our pipeline that is trying to get through the FDA is causing CV side effects. Roughly 2.6% of over 800+ patients showed side effects for CV events so FDA approval is very unlikely. The FDA rejected a drug from Bristol Myers and Squibb over 19 CV events that were found in 1000+ patients, so we definitely won't get approval. The company is definitely going to fold since we haven't made a profit in 10 years. And it isn't just the fact that I worked for a small company either. Pfizer layed off 10,000 people recently after losing $800 million on Torcetrapib, DuPont has hacked and slashed its R&D constantly, Merck is laying off 7000 , Bayer another 1000, and J&J has axed a large chunk of its research groups as well. So yeah, I am done with industry. I'm not going to chase around R&D jobs like everyone else and constantly have to move and worry about paying bills. My main goal right now is to go back to school. Hopefully medical school. If I can't get in my other options I have considered are going to pharmacy school or going back for a MA or possibly PhD in Economics (at least I still get to do some math) and work on Wallstreet as an analyst or something. Wow only 24 and burned out from the science industry already. Maybe I will try to learn some Chinese or Hindu as it seems all of our jobs are going there anyway.
