<< Unless you have 20 papers from that 2 year
post-doc, forget it. If you're a racial "minority" really forget it.
If you are a woman, a racial minority (which I happen to be), prepare for
4 years of post-doc at least!>>
If you are into Neuroscience, there's a great postdoc fellowship available
from the American Psychological Association (APA) for the Minority
Fellowship Program, an NIMH sponsored award adminstered by the APA. I had
gotten a predoctoral fellowship from them, and then a 1year postdoc
fellowship. Pretty reasonable in terms of the competition and great
people to know! If you are interested I can look up the info...

We Ph.Ds in NY have always thought of KMart as OUR fallback plan (sigh).
