My first published clip recently came out in the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) Today magazine. Check out “How to Compete with a Lab Diva” to learn strategies for getting ahead when surrounded by diva types at work.
“We all know them — research minions, professor’s pets, lab divas — those bench mates who seem to get all the attention and resources even though you are just as talented as they are. They often exhibit selfish behavior (e.g., leave common lab spaces messy, use up lab supplies, etc.), and for some reason, the principal investigator seems to reward them for this science superstar attitude, creating a perception of lab favoritism among team members.”
