I intend to go to graduate school for molecular bio or genetics and then
try to get a job in academia after the required post-docs, etc. I am
wondering how many women out there have been able to combine a career
in academia with children. At what point did you have children? (grad
school/post-doc/as a professor/time off). I am especially concerned
since I will not be out of grad school until at least the age of 30 and it
seems that this career path does not leave much room for children.
