I am currently working in quite new university as lecturer for applied medical science undergrad in genetics subjects. I am facing some issues:
The university requires every lecturer do some publications in their field ( at least 2 papers a year). In genetics, this usually requires access to a lab and good fund for research. However do not have any of those. Any good suggestion ?
I have been trying for roughly a year and half now to do some collaborations with some scientist who I know, but I face the same issue , they asked if I have funding. I fully understand that to do research or ask for collaboration , I should have either funding, access to a lab or ideas, lab or ideas. I tried to give some proposal, but I have not got any response or some of them might not be interested.
I am thinking now to try to do research based on dry lab projects, but I would need some guidance for that.
I hope i can get some suggestions for these issues .
Thanks in advance
