i am doing research at the university. i've got my own subject to work on. i am the only one doing that subject. just from time to time i need to report the results to my supervisor and that's the only person i am in contact with. i think it's a good job for a motivated aspie. although, i lost my motivation lately. it just requires to go through many other stages before and takes years to get there. and even then it takes only few years until they make you to teach and attending conferences to present your work.

I am the same as tomamil. It was very hard getting to this point but I am now doing okay. I present at conferences and can cope with that (just) but there is talk of me getting PhD students to supervise and am not sure I want the responsibility for someone else's career - if I mess up then it is their lives that are harder.

to do my job you have to have a batchelors degree and a Phd
it is possible to get technician jobs if you have good science grades from school

I'm a network administrator at a University. I sit at a computer all day and fix problems people have with their email or their network access. Sometimes I have to talk on the phone, but most of my client contact is done by email. It's a pretty good gig for an aspie :)
