      This isn’t so much about science… more about universities… and work in general… I don’t like doing paperwork!

      I completely agree with Martin! There’s nothing that I don’t like about science but the paperwork involved, is not my most enjoyable task!

      I agree! The admin side of the job can be a bit boring…I don’t know if you have done any report writing yet in any science class? But, everything has to be accurately recorded and written up. I just want to move onto putting on the next experiment!

      I have to work with many different scientists across the world. All have their own schedule. Sometimes it is hard to get things done fast. We should not keep our new findings unpublished for long time; as others are also doing the similar research in their labs. I do not like this competition in science and I find it quite challenging.
