      There is a great sense of fun when you do / learn something new. The pay / salary for scientific roles may not be as high as other jobs out there.

      My advice, is not to chase a job based purely on money as you have to do what you enjoy, and then the work you need to do, doesn’t ever feel like work.

      I love it! I hope one day to see electric cars on the road with chemicals in them which I helped make.

      It feels great to work in the battery industry because we’re helping to make the world more sustainable and protect the environment. It makes me feel like I’m making a difference! It’s also a really interesting job because I get to learn a lot.

      I enjoy chasing after pure logic/truth/conclusions. There’s something deeply satisfying about finding out something new, and then sharing that knowledge with others.

      I love it. I am so proud to be a scientist, and I am especially proud that I am representing women in science. A more diverse workforce is SO essential to advance scientific understanding!

      I feel blessed, very grateful, and sometimes I still find it hard to believe that I am a scientist trying to tackle some of humanity’s greatest challenges. Sometimes that is what keeps me going when things get difficult.

      I really enjoy it, it’s the most interesting job I’ve ever done and compared to some of my friends that work in industry rather than research, I think my job is more exciting (no offence to them!).
      There’s always great satisfaction when the news come to see what we’ve done and report on it, or important people like politicians, delegations from other countries or people from industry are excited to see what work you’re doing and get involved themselves.
      The other bonus is that because we are public funded, we have to be transparent about what we do and how the money we use is spent. So it means we can come up with creative and fun ways to explain our research to the public to show why it’s important.

      I felt fulfilled, and happy. I love finding new things or do my mini-project. Love the ‘ah, gotcha’ moment.
