I'm getting to the point in my graduate student career where it is time to start contemplating postdoctoral fellowships and all that goes along with that. I know I want to stay in the DNA repair field but want to shift away from my current spectrum of work into another subfield, maybe the implications of DNA repair in aging or maybe cryptochromes. Honestly who knows right now. I'm more looking just to get my name out there by attending some of the smaller more intimate meetings (Gordon, etc.) that are patroned by the movers and shakers in my field. Hopefully by them seeing me and me seeing them I can lock up a good postdoc. For those of you in postdocs or who have done one, I would be interested in knowing how did you find your PI and what were the circumstances of setting up your postdoc.
