Get your website up and running fast
If you’re like most scientists I know, your lab website is probably the last thing on your to-do list.
Whether you’re running a lab or running an organization, developing a website—let alone keeping it up-to-date—is not how you want to spend your valuable time.
You want to recruit the best people, do great science and be regarded in your field. The less time spent on administrivia the better.
You may not even think you need a personal academic website. You have a faculty page on your department’s site and think that’s probably enough.
Reclaim control over your content
Do you have control over your content? Can you add images? Is it easy to change? Can students find the page? Does it give them enough information? Can you take it with you?
Obviously, the answer to the last question is no. But I think it’s one of the most important reasons scientists should have their own lab website. An academic life means moving institutions at least a couple times for most. You should control your information and make it easy to bring along with you.
Hire a designer who understands science
I’m a scientist turned web designer who specializes in scientific website design, and I’d like to help you. Since finishing grad school more than 13 years ago I’ve been helping companies, the NIH and major research universities communicate clearly. Whether you already have an academic website or need to build something from scratch I can help.
