OK – so I was wrong about Boris taking over the country in the autumn. But then how could anybody have predicted Gove’s backstabbing of his erstwhile brexit colleague?
I guess Gove is a better Shakespearean scholar than Boris – et tu Gove?
We’re entering fellowship season where, usually, scientists from around the globe apply for long term research positions in the UK. We’re already seeing good candidates saying ‘not this year’ in the wake of brexit, so my next prediction is that the numbers of fellowship applicants will be significantly down on previous years.
Conversely, if you’re in the UK and want to stay, then the competition might not be as fierce this year…
