The offer came through by email this afternoon. I have accepted a position as a Visiting Research Programmer within the Hydrogeology Program in the Department of Geology. I will be starting Monday, June 26. (The "Visiting" in the job title means that I can stay in this position for a maximum of three years, but once I'm settled in and I've been productive in the position for a couple of years, I will have a big advantage when they do a formal search for a person to fill the permanent position. If I can prosper in this position, I can expect to have it for a long time.)
I want to thank everyone for their good wishes in these last few weeks, and appeal for your continuing emotional support. Getting back into working full time will be a challenge for me, but I'm determined to make it work, and I will have the support of a boss who understands my situation and has promised to help me succeed.
