Reboot career after 3 years of break due to maternity leave
I`m Anna, MD, PhD from Ukraine. I am back in the lab in 2020 after 3 years of maternity leave. Now need to perform a genetic part on a grant, while struggling to remember the PCR practical skills.
I stuck with elementary items, like calculating concentration, designing primers, PCR troubleshooting ... My work environment is stressful, colleagues are not helping, some even aggressive. I feel guilty of being not competent, become frustrated and stressed so much. I asked some questions in Researchgate, but can`t wait to answers for so long.
My boss is not interested in "micromanagement")
Please, share your experience of returning to lab practice.
Thanks in advance! 🤩
