Working from Home

Postby TLO » Fri Nov 16, 2012 7:45 am

I am a 4th year Biochemistry student, and for a variety of reasons, I am interested in careers where I can work from home full time. Ideally, I would still like to use my PhD in some capacity.

Thank you very much.

You could investigate teaching online. Many many institutions- traditional public universities and community colleges and less traditional for profit colleges- offer very rigorous online classes that they need instructors for.

I would add that scientific editing can be done too. There are many companies that offer this option and pay per assignment. If you want more information, please send me a message and I would be happy to give you some names that you can start looking into. Goodluck.
