I am moving jobs

I gave in my notice to Insights yesterday.
http://www.insights.com/

I work until 31st December but with accumulated leave and Christmas holidays I have my last day in the office on the 21st. I have been here for seven years. It feels good to be moving on.

I am going to be working for the College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee as a Open Microscopy Environment: Documentation and Data Model Specialist, Division of Gene Regulation and Expression. Fortunately they have shortened this to Software Developer on the contract as I can see it being a pain to fit that much text onto a lot of forms.

Yes it was, thanks for your comments. It seams to have happened very fast - thought I am sure others can tell be that I was wandering around for the odd week complaining that nothing had happened for ages.

Excellent! Is that the one for which they didn't bother actually contacting me for a reference because you're so wonderful? Or is it another one?

I take it you'll be in the Wellcome building not the Medical Sciences Institute then. They were building it when, a as postgrad desperately looking for money I cleaned bits of the Medical Sciences Institute for about six months.

Yep that is the one - I wonder if the personnel department will check the references now I have sent the signed contract back. It will be in the Wellcome building, they have extended it recently and there is also a bit connecting it to the old building.

hurrah!
congratulations! Thats fantastic news, and I'm sure will be a really good change for you (altho a quick glance at the OME makes it look suitably scientifically terrifying). Good time of year to be turning over a new leaf, and ooh, extra xmas hols. What a good world!
