Video clip: After Samira finished her maternity leave she decided that she didn’t have enough support in the lab for her to work part-time.

Have you ever thought of working part-time?

Very briefly.

And what made you decide to continue full time?

Really a recognition that science is one of those careers where it would be difficult to progress, the research efficiently, especially at this stage where the projects have to take off, one needs to, to be there full time. I didn’t feel that there was enough support to, support mechanisms to enable me to progress the work while working part-time.
