My sister, currently in the final 6 months of her PhD (well, at least the last six months of funding) has just called to tell me that her research group got the grant they'd applied for - so she has a three-year post-doc waiting for her when she's done. (At a salary which sounds completely reasonable. I'm confused; either it's an exceptionally well-paid post-doc position or I'm completely misremembering academic salaries. Either is possible.)
