In this episode, I speak with Darin Weed, Scientific Consultant and Grant Writing Specialist. The first person in his family to go to college, Darin earned a BS in biotechnology from Minnesota State University. After working for a year as a laboratory technician, he went to graduate school and earned a PhD in virology, and continued doing research as a postdoctoral fellow. However, after about 2 years, he decided to leave the lab and start his current position as a grant writer. We’ll talk about all these experiences, and of course find out about what job is like.
