What lab do you intend to use for this work? Does your Ph.D. supervisor
know about this plan? I would advise you to check the legality of your offer
before accepting jobs.
I once had a research assistant do work of his own in my lab (and using
my reagents, including controlled and radioactive sbstances!). Obviously,
the minute I knew, I fired him. Beware...
