There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Apparently, this is literally true for postdocs at UNH. This is postdoc appreciation week. I first heard about it on twitter (@djhocking) but then got this email yesterday:
I guess it’s nice they they know we’re on campus doing stuff. I would feel more appreciated if they came me free entry to the dining hall for lunch/dinner one day. Or maybe just a cup of coffee at a seminar (maybe even one about getting a job). Oh well, I guess we’re overpaid anyway since we just sit around blogging and fantasizing about a permanent job before age 40.
