      When I am busy 7 to 10 hours but sometimes even less.
      The secret, like many things in life, is to be organize so that you won’t need to overwork.

      Depends on the day. On busy days it could be 8 – 10 hours, but most times it’s much less.

      Some days I could be in the lab for 7-8 hours. Some days I might only be in the lab for 1-2 hours, and the rest of the day in the office. It depends on what work I have planned each day. I do a lot of my analysis on the computer in the office, so some days I spend longer on the computer than in the lab.

      I don’t spend any time in the lab! I am outside with the cows around 5 hours a day and the rest is doing other jobs outside or inside working with excel spreedsheets or reports.

      It depends on what I am doing. sometimes, I spend 80% of my work hours in the lab but at other times, I am at my desk writing up.
