Consultant looking for med chem position. 35+ years experience at major Pharma plus Academia. Responsible in large part for 2 drugs on market. Ran a group of over 20 people.
I am at a crossroads in my life and about to be laid off at 60. I would like to keep going and it would really help me financially. But I get the feeling that there is just nothing out there for a Ph.D. organic chemist to do at this age. I know this is an increasingly common situation and wonder what others in similar straits have done in their post-layoff existence.Readers, any thoughts? Continuing to be a consultant and/or starting one's own medicinal chemistry company are my two ideas; unfortunately, I don't think they will solve Anon5:21's financial concerns.
