OK, so I'm in Melbourne. Flight got in insanely early in the morning, and I really don't know what timezone I'm in anyway. But I'm here and I have tea and internet and cousins.

Yay for tea, internet, and cousins. You really do have cousins in the most convenient places. Have fun scoping out the job!

*looks up*

You're in Melbourne? In search of post-doc employment? Wow. I really should get one of those doctorate thingies. The floppy velvet hat would be rather nice, but the idea of international job opportunities has a certain appeal too.

Let me know if you'd like additional company or tour guiding.

I'd love to meet up (and had forgotten you were in Melbourne rather than just somewhere in this continent!) Email me (@lj) so we can make plans? I'm likely to see email more reliably than LJ comments.

Probably the best day for me is Thursday, as I'm rather over-programmed for most of the rest of what is a rather fleeting visit. Tomorrow (Sunday) also a possibility.

I never got a floppy velvet hat, cos Scottish universities don't believe in hats. Most disappointing, especially as I'm no longer entitled to wear my BA mortarboard (by virtue of having a higher degree now). But yeah, international job opportunities are cool, and somewhat make up for the total absence of anything resembling job security or a decent salary in academia.

I'll email you and we'll try and work something out, although our schedules may not be particularly consonant, as I'm working night shift tonight and day shift on Thursday. Welcome to Melbourne though.

Scottish unis don't believe in floppy velvet hats for doctors?!? What's the world coming to? Is that more of that Methodist/Calvinist austerity, or something else? Either way, I think you're getting ripped off.
