Hi,
I only found this website today, but I already have an irritatingly long research list to trudge to the library with. And this group is great - some of your postings are hilarious. Forget academia, ditch it and make some real money on light lit. I can see that most of you hail from America, and other assorted very far off places I don't think I'll be seeing in my lifetime, but is anyone from the land of Oz?

G'day,
Though I'm not personally, but a bunch of the folks in my lab are from Oz.. from all over the country, really. The lab Australia Day party definitely rivaled BBQ for the 4th of July!

I feel the impulse to say that Aussies do everything better, but I'll resist the urge.

Me! I am enrolled in a Research Degree at the Australian Defence Force Academy in Canberra, which is also where I work and live

Hiya Megami - it's good to know I'm not the only one. What's your specialty?

Hello Sunnycat, it's good to hear from you.
Medical Research hey? (Sigh) Yet another person working on a PhD which is worthwhile and has real world application.
What uni are you at?

I'm doing my Ph.D. at ANU. I'm originally an American that moved to Australia a little over three years ago to do complete my graduate studies (I had started in the states and was fortunate to win a scholarship from the Aus. gov't to study here). I intend on staying in Australia after my studies, as I really love the people and beauty of this country.

Mysterywater you're in good company; I'm finishing my thesis on a mathematical topic that has no application what so ever :).

PD: Belated welcome to Australia, we're glad to have you. Blue haired mathematic professors are a little thin on the ground here. I would have loved to have someone with even half a sense of humour as one of my tutors. Are you planning to stay in Canberra after graduation?

Come on - maths has application - it makes correct change at the checkout MUCH easier.

MW: Yes, I'd love to stay. This is provided, of course, that the Aussie gov't decides to accept my application for PR and not deport my sorry butt :P.

You are correct; I'm good at making change. At least I know if my hopes for world domination via bunny apocalypse don't pan out, I can always be a checkout clerk at supabarn.

Will you have to take the new residency test? I'm not sure whether that applies to all new permanent residents.

I wish I was good at maths: I'm literate NOT numerate. Anything beyond my times-table and I get a headache directly above my right eye.

BTW I think that your plan for world domination is a winner. Just as long as you change it to dogs. Lots and lots of cute, loyal and smart canines ruling the world. With some input from you, of course.

I did most of my BA in HPS and Russian at UNSW, now in USA.

What a great place to live ... but what an expensive place to buy books .....

Cool - that's half a dozen Librarythingers who are Aussies, were Aussies or hoping to stay Aussies. That's not too bad. Although this group alone has 786 members... what's the percentage on that? Ummm, I'm off to get a calculator.

Aussie, yes, PhD student, yes, history, yes -- seems to be a bit of a trend emerging here!
