(With apologies to Avenue Q, but not many.)
Why do you do with a PhD in Science?
What is my life going to be?
Five years of thinking,
and plenty of drinking
Has earned me this useless degree.
I don't have an answer,
Cos we lost the grants. Uh.
I should join the ARC mob.
My thesis, impressive,
my page count, excessive,
Does not mean that I'll get a job.
Yup, the funding got reallocated, so my 'welcome back to the country' job doesn't exist. Am I surprised? Not really. Bring on the Hunt!
