It's a post-doc. The PI's seems to be a guy I get along with. The project is exciting, new, and definitely diversifying my portfolio. I've been wanting to work on a project like this for 9 months now, long before I saw the ad for this position. It is located such that we could decide to keep having two households, but only a 3.5 hour commute each way (I could be home for dinner on Fridays!!!!!), or one household, and work heavily from home.

There are cons as well. I won't go into them now. I just spent the last couple hours digesting this news on the phone with my partner. But for now:

I have a job
A jobby jobby jo-o-ob.
I have a job
A jobby jobby job!

More digestion of my job hunting process, the pros and cons of this versus other positions, and 2 body problem musings to follow over the next few days.

But I have a job!
I get to live closer to my kid!
I can has family dinner on Mondays AND Fridays!
