I have been given an amazing opportunity to potentially live and work in Sweden, in my dream job, for a few years as of next year. Part of my application is a three page summary of my research and where I would like to take it. I am finding this extremely difficult so I thought I would draw up a flow-chart/mind-map/flow of consciousness style diagram of all the things I really care about and would like to do in my research career. This is the result. Which has led me to the conclusion that I possess high levels of insanity and would perhaps be better suited to kindergarten teaching or just being very quiet for a very long time.
