Hi, all! I am a computational postdoc with molecular modelling and bioinformatics experiences. Now I am in the second year of my first postdoc, I am thinking of looking for an experimental opportunity for my next postdoc this year.
I am working in the area of chromatin biology, and I know that I am more interested in the biological question itself than the method used. For long-term development, I want to obtain evidences from experiments and to design experiments and analyse data with computations. I know this could be achieved by collaboration, but a complete dependence on experimental collaboration can be limiting and sometimes be frustrating.
My problem now is that I am from a chemical physics background and I have never had experimental experiences in lab before. I want to ask here: is my idea silly or feasible? I see that a lot of experimentalists are now able to programme to analyse their data, but didn't see much the other way around.
I would be very thankful if anyone could share their experimences or advice. Thanks.
