I am looking for some advice. I have an M.S. in Parasitology and I'm
currently a 4th year PhD student in Microbiology studing an
arthropod-borne disease, Lyme disease. I enjoy this area of research but
I have my doubts about being able to secure a position (and finding grant
money!) in Parasitology/Vector-borne diseases. I have been considering
going into the military (probably the U.S. Navy) to do research in this
I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has had any
experience (or knows of someone) with this and could offer me some advice.
