Hmmm, this is a little bit blurred. I typically spend about 40 or so hours at work, but I also do most of my reading when I am at home and the nature of research means that I spend time thinking about it no matter where I am.
I would normally spend about 40-50 hours physically at work. But I always spend several nights a week working at home, so the total would probably be around 60. I would probably spend more time at work but I’m trying to put more “life” into my work:life balance!
Hi! I usually spend about 50-60 hours a week doing work.. but some weeks are busier than others. If I have lots of long experiments I might work more than that – but I would make sure I took some time off in the next week!
Science is a bit like being self-employed. I know what my goals are and what experiments I need to do, and then I work out what needs to be done when – it’s pretty flexible!
Hmm..I spend anything from 40-60 hours a week at work at the moment,it really depends on what experiments I’m doing at the time.One experiment that I do involves me working a 13 hour day.But I don’t perform that one very often…
I don’t do much work at home as I get home rather late and most of my work is lab work – hence, research assistant. Occaisionally I will drop in on a weekend to check on my cells.As Lee says, you don’t really stop thinking about your work.
