  1. Hi,

    ResearchGate is great network for scientists to follow other researchers and look for jobs. I am the co-founder of Quartzy ( that helps researchers, especially those in the life-sciences, to manage their labs. Keeping track of inventories, protocols, and scheduling sign-up for shared resources. Quartzy is online software that helps scientists manage their labs.

    There are a bunch of other up and coming sites as well that are helping scientists do more and it is a great trend for science!

    Best wishes,

  2. This is just quite an informative and also a very pleasant article with regards to those lokinh out the best career opportunities, but would this be only beneficial to those looking out for managerial level jobs…?
